    We want to collect contributions for buying new Kyokushin-kan Honbu building.

    Gary Cooper Completes 3 Years Uchideshi Program in Kyokushin-kan Honbu

    Contributed by Minoru Katae on March 24, 2016

    Gary Cooper from U.S.A. (L.A. Dojo, Branch Chief: Sensei Tom Callahan) arrived Japan together with the other U.S. team for the first time to attend the International Karate Instructors Camp held in Tochigi from March 1st to 3rd, 2013. From the next day after the camp, Gary stayed in Honbu Dojo as Honbu Uchideshi (live in student) to train Karate in Japanese custom.

    Gary started Uchideshi as a brown belt but on the day of graduation, he completed 30 men Kumite and achieved a Nidan black belt. It is very difficult for a Westerner to complete Uchideshi program, not because of hard training but because of different custom – culture, language and environment. Aside from every day training, Uchideshis are required to clean the entire dojo, wash Sempai’s dogis, prepare food, study Japanese and many other miscellaneous works to maintain Honbu dojo and it’s activities.

    However, the most unfortunate thing that happened to Gary and other Uchideshis was on October 2014, when Honbu lost its own Dojo. It meant that they didn’t have place to train. After Honbu lost its Dojo, all the administrative works were moved in an apartment and Uchideshis were sent to nearby Branch Dojo (Hatogaya Dojo, Branch Chief: Sensei Kiyotaka Sakurai) with good will from its Branch Chief. Every Uchideshis were required to train on their own. Gary as the only senior Uchideshi, must have had hard time to maintain the motivation of his Kohai Uchideshis keeping up the discipline and training for himself. It must have been a battle for himself. As well as being headquarters, Honbu dojo faces the same challenges as all world branches. We are very optimistic Honbu will recover from this difficulty, and students like Gary will be here for us to carry the teaching into the future.

    The 3 years as Uchideshi might be long and indeed there are many events and memories that happened during this period, but moreover, we hope these experience will influence positively on Gary’s life.

    Congratulations Gary for completing the program. Osu!

    Shihan Jose Millan

    Contributed by Minoru Katae on March 2, 2016

    We are very shocked and saddened by the news of our International Committee Chairman, Shihan Jose Millan, passing away on 29th of February at the age of 80.

    Shihan Millan was one of the first men who brought Kyokushin karate back to Spain. He came to Japan to practice Sosai Mas Oyama’s karate in the early 1960′s at “Oyama Dojo” before Kyokushin was established. He has resided in Japan for 40 years and dedicated his lifetime contributing to Kyokushin and Kyokushin-kan.

    Shihan Millan was a sempai of Kancho Royama’s and always have been a very close friend and advisor.

    We think he will finally meet Sosai in heaven and have a long conversation since he loved to talk.

    May his soul rest in peace.

    Thank you Shihan Millan for all what you have taught. You will always live inside our heart.

    Big Osu!
