To JKF WADO-KAI overseas branches
Dear Friends,

This is about the partial revision of the WADO-KAI Overseas Regulations

WADO-KAI would like to show their appreciation to all of the non-Japanese WADO-KAI members for their compliance with the WADO-KAI Overseas Regulations, created on July 27th 2002, and thank them for their large contributions to their development.
However, subject to the decision of the JKF WADO-KAI board, we have removed the following items within article 9 of the regulations (Standards for establishing the country headquarters) part 1, "Any country containing more than two branches may establish a country headquarters.".
It will be reported that the abolition of the headquarters was decided by the International Department of the WADO-KAI Group. Accordingly, correspondence regarding the WADO-KAI Headquarters in the future (such as branch registration, member registration, promotion registration, etc.) will now be dealt with directly by the WADO-KAI branch in each country, with the cooperation of JKF WADO-KAI.

We hope to continue the development of Wado Karate around the world with your cooperation.

Yoshinori Matsui, Chairman
Seiji Kondo, International Director
