Who Are We?

We are a not-for-profit organization. Under the IKO Nakamura banner, we try to bring together dojos with the same passion: to promote the teaching of Kyokushin karate by making it accessible to all, man, woman, child, of course, but also to people with physical or mental disabilities, and regardless of social status.
We are convinced of the benefits of daily martial art such as Kyokushin karate.

Mission

Although our mission is to develop our territory by opening new centres (dojos) or by integrating existing centers into our federation, our first mission is to provide professional, structured and quality education, obviously in agreement and supervised by the parent company, Honbu, IKO Nakamura.

Vision

Our vision is, through the learning and practice of Kyokushin karate, to forge the bodies and minds of our members and students, in order to make them citizens of the world, without prejudice or discrimination. In order for them to become ambassadors of peace promoting international friendship.

THE ORGANIZATION
IKO NAKAMURA

Nakamura Kyokushin International

The International Kyokushin Karate Federation (KIK) is supervised by the organization IKO Nakamura (International Kyokushin Organisation Nakamura). Nakamura has been in existence in Japan for more than 40 years, with more than 600 dojos worldwide. In recent years, following strong demand, the organization has been forced to develop the international side by establishing itself in various countries, including Canada.

Sosui Makoto Nakamura

Sosui Makoto Nakamura is head of the IKO Nakamura federation. Involved in martial arts from an early age, he had the privilege of training at the Honbu in Tokyo and was taught by Sosai Mas Oyama. He is the only one who has achieved the feat of being two-time world champion at the All Japan Tournament, in 1979 and 1984.

He moved to Kobe in the early 1980s to promote Kyokushin karate in the region. Currently, IKO Nakamura manages more than 70 dojos in Japan and operates in more than 30 countries.

NakaMURA Daihyo Masanaga

As president of IKO Nakamura, he manages the national operations of the entire organization and organizes seminars around the world to promote Kyokushin karate. Its mission is to make the link between the dojos of the organization and to share the techniques and knowledge necessary to teach Kyokushin karate. It is thanks to the many seminars he has given around the world that dojo directors can transmit quality traditional karate.

SHIHAN TATS NAKAMURA

Shihan Tats Nakamura, international secretary of the IKO Nakamura federation, was born in Japan in 1967. He began karate at the age of 15 and obtained the rank of black belt in 1987. He was later appointed director of the Amagasaki dojo in Japan and this experience served as the basis for his teaching. In 1991 he immigrated to Canada and opened a new dojo in Vancouver in June 1992. He has been training in Kyokushin Karate for 34 years in the IKO and holds the rank of 7th dan. He shares his skills and experience with passion.

PHILOSOPHY

The philosophy and message we want to convey to our members, through the teaching of Kyokushin karate, is that everyone realizes that the ultimate goal of our existence is to become a better person.

THE PRINCIPLES

The fundamental principles of our federation come directly from the nine virtues of the Bushido (the way of the warrior): honor, fidelity, sincerity, courage, goodness, righteousness respect and self-control.

EVOLUTION

With K.I.K., everyone can evolve and aspire to surpass themselves. Whether through competition, teaching, becoming a dojo director, as an umpire or, simply as karateka, we offer all the tools to succeed.

B028

TEACHING

For us, it is essential that the teaching of Kyokushin karate be done in an atmosphere of respect and trust. It is in such a climate that the teaching of a martial art as demanding as Kyokushin is made possible.

B010

CONTINUOUS TRAINING

In our federation, it is not only the students who receive karate training, but all the teachers. Our international internships and seminars allow the senseis to keep up to date and maintain the passion, the flame of Kyokushin karate.

ADAPTATION

Karate is evolving and has to adapt to modern society. Some styles have completely distorted the essence of martial arts to turn it into a sport. Others are limited to remaining rooted in tradition. We are trying to find a middle ground.

The martial arts path begins and ends in courtesy. So be courteous at all times.

Sosai Mas Oyama

Following the path of martial arts is like climbing a mountain, you have to persevere to the top relentlessly. This requires an absolute and unfailing devotion to the task.

Sosai Mas Oyama

Seek to take the initiative in everything, keeping you at all times from actions motivated by selfish animosity and a lack of respect.

Sosai Mas Oyama

Even if the martial arts practitioner cannot ignore the place of money, he must be careful not to attach himself to it.

Sosai Mas Oyama

The martial path is centered on posture. Maintain good posture at all times.

Sosai Mas Oyama

The martial route begins with a thousand days and is controlled after ten thousand days of training.

Sosai Mas Oyama

In martial arts, introspection breeds wisdom. Always think of thinking about your actions as an opportunity to improve.

Sosai Mas Oyama

The nature and purpose of martial arts are universal. Any selfish desire must be righted on the anvil of rigorous training.

Sosai Mas Oyama

Martial arts start with a point and end with a circle. Straight lines have their origins in this principle.

Sosai Mas Oyama

The authentic essence of martial arts can only be realized through experience. Learn never to fear its demands.
