LETTERS FROM THE HONBU

I have lived in Yokosuka, Japan for 3 years. In August of 1998, I traveled to Osaka, Japan to test for the rank of godan (5th degree black belt). Other studies include: Hakko-Ryu Jiu Jitsu and Kuniba-Ha Goshin-Do in which I hold the rank of Nidan (2nd degree black belt) in Koga-Ryu Kobudo from Ruiz, Joseph "Saiko-Shihan" of the International Karate Kobudo Union.
As your Vice President, I also give my pledge of support to Woodard "Shihan" as President. I can assure you that with nearly 85 years of studying, training and instruction between us, you will always have a resource of available information. Osu!!Yours in Budo, Steven Johnson "Sensei" 1999

STEVEN JOHNSON VP

Each Nation is a separate branch of the NKKF and is overseen by the Honbucho or Director of that Nation.

The NKKF is void of any politics and only has one common goal and that is "Excellence" each of the individual Directors share this common goal.

We currently have representatives in the USA and 14 countries, each will be the National branch office of that country.

Thus we are the National Karate & Kobudo Federation. -Bill Woodard NKKF President 1998
