A letter of invitation for the F.S.A Kenshinkan
Open Tournament F.S.A Absolute-3

The result of the tournament is here.

<10th degree(dan)>

In today's climate of globalization it has become necessary for Japan to become more international. We believe that through karate, a well-known part of Japanese culture, we can engage in cultural exchange with people from abroad thus deepening our understanding of each others cultures and in the process contributing to the internationalization of Japan.
I believe Karate encompasses a spiritual aspect as well as one of self protection. When you look now at combative arts being represented by entertainment sports like K-1 and Pride and see karate competitors put on gloves and enter the ring to lose to a kickboxer, it really seems that karate is not effective. Then when you see someone grapple with there opponent and a few minutes later win the bout using kansetsuwaza (joint manipulation) it is evident that this technique would be a powerful tool against multiple opponents or against opponents with a knife.
Without disputing the notion that the technical punches of boxing are the most powerful, in a real fight situation traditional karate techniques like attacks to the eyes and groin are surprisingly effective against punches, it is then very easy to follow these techniques up with kansetsuwaza (joint manipulation).
In September, 2003, with the aim of reviving traditional karate technique, we held a tournament that showcased an historical form of karate, allowing attacks to the eyes, groin and bare-handed punches to the face. After the tournament we received a huge and positive response from both the karate world and the combative arts world.
Please come and see the fight of the century. We look forward to seeing you as a competitor or spectator at this tournament.
