I envision the unique opportunity to bring together all the traditional karate federations on the planet and come up with proposals that further strengthen and design the traditional karate movement around the world. In this way we will be honoring the sensei legacy Hidetaka Nishiyama and at the local level we will reverence our sensei Dan Stuparu.
