I had a conversation today with a friend in Canada. He in turn had a conversation with someone in the JKA Hierarchy there in the past few days. Their conversation was about JKA trying to reunite Shotokan to the place it once was.
The interesting news was that Masao Kagawa is allegedly re-entering the JKA. I warned that it was likely to be Masao Kawasoe, but this friend said no "Kagawa from JKS'.
I am sure that it is probably all an error, but I wonder if anyone else has heard of this, or a JKA/JKS reuniting?
I do not wish to start rumours. This is a genuine question to those with ears out there.
I have not read about this or been told about it, but in my oppinion its a good thing. the more seniors we can bring back under one umbrella the better for the students who want to train with different masters. I know groups like the ISKF will never come back because of issues, but those that left before or with the big devide would be great to have as associated again...if not full members.
