FUNDADOR KARATE NOMICHI MUNDIAL-KWF
After graduating from Kokushikan University, he became Kenshusei, or junior instructor, in the Japan Karate Association and had an illustrious competitive career that lasted through the decade 1974-84.
He met Yohji Yamamoto, an admirer of his “killing blow” karate, and in April 2000 he established the Karatenomichi World Federation to develop further his idea of karate. The KWF is a traditional Shotokan karate association that is dedicated to developing technical excellence. Ultimately, the purpose of karate is to be able to stop, cripple or kill an attacker using the hands and feet. Mikio Yahara has devoted his life to the pursuit of being able to, if necessary, destroy an opponent with one killing blow. At age 59, he submitted himself for examination for 8th dan and fractured three of his opponent’s ribs with a single strike
