Read greeting
«I am sincerely glad that the 6th Kyokushin karate World Cup will be held from 3th to 7th of October 2019 in Moscow.

I know that, thanks to the efforts of the Russian karate Union and related organizations, all necessary thing for preparations for the world Cup are already happening , in particular, the organizing Committee for the preparation of the event has already been established, and I express my deep respect for these achievements.

This year is special for Japan and Russia. In May Japanese Prime Minister S. Abe attended the opening ceremony of the Year of Japan in Russia and the Year of Russia in Japan at the Bolshoi theatre during his visit to Moscow together with Russian President Vladimir Putin. I personally also participated in the ceremony as part of the delegation of the Japanese government. As part of the year of cultural exchange, our countries will hold more than 300 events in a variety of areas, including sports. In addition, in June this year in Russia begins the FIFA World Cup, which will be attended by the national team of Japan.

In the field of karate between Russia, which gave the world a lot of strong fighters, and Japan, the birthplace of karate, there are already strong ties. I hope that the year of cultural exchange and the upcoming World Cup will bring our countries closer together and promote trust and friendship between our peoples..

I sincerely wish that the VIth Kyokushin karate World Cup will have a great success and become a great event which will be highly appreciated all over the world»
