World All Kyokushin Karate Union
After Many years of hard and continuous training, many received awards and achievements, loyalty to the International Karate Organization KyokushinKaiKan, and Sosai Mas Oyama, Hanshi Hussein Suleiman - 8th Dan (Japan), was given authorization by Sosai Mas Oyama himself to start The International Japanese Academy of Martial Arts in 1993 to continue promoting Kyokushin Karate, and Full Contact Budo Karate world wide. After the death of Sosai Oyama in 1994, Suleiman Hanshi continued holding his International Leadership role as The Middle East Area Chairman, continued being loyal to The International Karate Organizationa KyokushinKaiKan IKO 1 Matsui Group, training, teaching, and working with Kyokushin leaders; for example, Kancho Shokei Matsui (IKO-1 Director), the late Shihan Bobby Lowe (August 23, 1929 - September 14, 2011 - IKO Kyokushinkaikan International Committee Chairman, North & Central American Chairman, and US Branch Chief for Hawaii, has served Sosai Mas Oyama's organization since its inception), and Shihan Royama (KyokushinKan Director) just to name few. In 2007, as the IKO Matsui administration moved away from Sosai Oyama's footsteps, Hanshi Suleiman felt it is best to join his Japanese Kyokushin Karate friends that he grew up and trained with for decades in the All Japan Kyokushin Union. Sadly, politics and personal desire finds its way into people's minds and hearts. The All Japan most senior officers inside and outside Japan were insulted after Hanshi Hasegawa and Hanshi Ohishi were pushed out disrespectfully, and were forced to start a new Kyokushin Organization, World Sokyokushin. Therefore, in March 2014, Hanshi Suleiman decided to resign from the All Japan Kyokushin Union, and with his senior students worldwide activate The WAKKU activities with the highest ranking Kyokushin Grandmasters, world leaders inside Japan and internationally. Today, The World All Kyokushin Karate Union ( WAKKU ) stands strong, working with authentic, well reputed Japanese and International Kyokushin Organization through the leadership of its elected President, Hanshi Suleiman.
