Mas. Oyama ! 大山総裁 !

大山総裁が亡くなってもう10年以上たちます。。。俺は未だに毎日頭から離れないです、総裁は僕にとって日本に来てからのお父さんであり、空手の先生でもありました。大山総裁は最高にいい人でした、世界中の人々に感動を与えること出来きました。よく言ってくれた言葉は”やればできる!、やらないから出来ないんだよ!”それと”自分は苦しいとき、相手も苦しい!”意外と単純な言葉なんですけど、よく考えると非常に面白いです。

ニコラス

It has been more than 10 years since Oyama Sosai passed away, and there is not a day that goes by that I do not think about him. He was my farther in Japan, he was my teacher in Karate. I have been blessed with the same gift and love for Martial Arts that he has been able to pass on. I am his last student, when most had already written him off as a figure head of an organisation that was founded years before, I was there to see that he was still a true lion on the top of his kingdom. I will never forget his teachings, nor shal I ever forget the way he treated me. And therefore I am always true to the people that come to me, like the way I went to him. Always keep your door open to a hungry and thursty traveler, and he will smile upon your grace. Train with anyone that you think you can learn something from, and pass on the teachings of Martial Arts as where they a script meant not for you, but for your childrens children to learn how to protect themselves. Stay true to the way, and strive to become a person that people can look up to and admire. Those were words from my former Master, guide, teacher and Farther, take to your heart without regret and you will find that obstacles in life become easier to overcome.
