To confirm the rumour that has spread around the world, it is true that I have recently joined the JAPAN KARATE ASSOCIATION (JKA).
This occurred via the assistance of Naka Tatsuya Shihan.

At the beginning of October I officially began training under Nakamura Masamitsu Shihan in Central Kumamoto, which has been fantastic.
Supplementing this practice I’ve been self-training in Namino and Aso-shi. In these practices I will continue to work on everything I have learned over the past 32 years of Karate-Do, but will now move forward.
Overall, I’d like to offer my appreciation to Naka Shihan, Nakamura Shihan and JKA for their immense support. - André
