Kiyohiko: As Genseiryu is an existing organization and thus part of this society, its condition at this point in time is important:
How should it be.
Where is should be aiming.
Which kind of role it should take on in order to make achievements.
What kind of persons are involved?
I believe that I have to be clear on these issues. The reason for attending a lot of tournaments is that this is one way to let the society know which kinds of ambitions or ideas Genseiryu has. I would like to bring the values of my experiences, which I have learned through my membership of the Japanese National Team as well as the World Karate-do Championship, on to the next generations. Personally, it was easy to set up my goals, as a lot of top-ranking seniors such as Marutani sempai, Sugita sempai, Motohashi sempai and Shimozono sempai, who had achieved good results at many tournaments, was training at the dojo. Even though it would have been a joke, it was good mental support when they backed me up and convinced me that I could win the World Karate-do Championship.
My personal ambition is to win the first prize as an individual player at the World Karate-do Championship.
