Like · Reply · 3 · May 6 at 2:29pm —————————————————————————————-- Testimonial by Shihan Jim Genovese graduate of the Japan Karatedo College on Kancho Deena Naidu I met Kancho Deena Naidu (Dino as I know him) at the All Japan Karate Do College in Tokyo in the early 1970’s. He was already there when I arrived and was a respected student at the col- lege.Shortly after my arrival I met Deena Naidu and we quickly became friends. We were all foreign students training in karate in Japan. The training in Japan was very strict and arduous. We started early in the morning and trained late into the night. Spar- ring, conditioning, physical training, meditation, and spiritual training were all a part of our daily life. Deena Naidu always trained hard and did well. He had a good spirit, and a good heart. He paid close attention to all the les- sons, and was really interested in the spiritual aspects of our training. He had come to increase his skills and knowledge, so he could better lead his karate organization in South Africa. We trained and studied with the best in Japan. We trained primarily in Goju Ryu, but we also trained in Shotokan, Shitoryu, weap- ons , and Okinawan Goju. We were trained in Shintoism, Bud- dhism, and healing arts for dojo injuries. We all lived in the dormitory at the school. We were often sum- moned at all times of the day and night to go down to the dojo for a special event or special training. Living and training to- gether we all got to know each other very well. Deena Naidu was always a dedicated and conscientious student, and one of Master Gogen Yamaguchi’s favourites. The master always spoke well of him, and liked him very much. It was an arduous and difficult year, but soon it came to an end. Deena Naidu gradu- ated with honours and Master Yamaguchi praised him as one of his better students. He was recognized as a good teacher, and a spiritual karate practioner. Recently, he got in touch with me after over 25 years. We re-established our friendship, and met again in Canada while he was travelling in North America. It was wonderful seeing him and catching up after all these years. It was even better to find out that he had continued his life- long study of karate, and taken his initial training and continued his growth, as he still does. Deena Naidu, the man I knew in Japan has just grown and refined in the man I met in Victoria, Canada. I was proud to be his friend then, and even prouder to be his friend now. Moses Kgosibodiba This anecdote will add to my collection on kancho. It is like I have known Kancho Deena Naidu for decades,yet we met 21 August 2015.

Kancho graduated from Gogen Yamaguchi Sensei’s college in 1976 and became the 6th in the world to do it. Goshin kan does not participate in tournaments and all of its teachers are re- garded as the finest in the world. It is totally traditional and has an edu- cation in human values program. Goshin kan has now a college in Syd- ney Australia to train graduates from all around the world. Kancho has done a great deal of work for the betterment of the karate community. Gogen Sensei treated him like a son. His school teaches traditional ka- rate like no one else. His 29 systems of karate is not like the fast track school that only teach basics, moving, kata and Kumite. His goal is to improve the quality of life for all who come to him and teach them the skills they need for defence. He does not sit on a pedestal but trains and guides all his students.

  4. 4. Martial Arts Brief: Kancho Deena NaiduPage 4 S O L O M Z Kancho Deena Naidu was born in the year 1949 in South Africa. His mother gave birth to him prematurely. Kancho graduated in the Japan Karate Do College in Tokyo in 1976, 6th in the world under Grandmaster Gogen Yama- guchi and became the only one South African to have done so in the world. “ Gogen sensei took me in as a son”, he said. Kancho lives in Australia in the suburb of Syd- ney where he runs an international organiza- tion called NKA International Goshin Karate- Do. His teaching does not involve competitions or tournaments of any kind as he believes that this is the breeding ground for ego and com- petitions he believes does very little to im- prove character or help people defend them- selves. He says karate has three parts: physi- cal for body, mental for the mind and spiritual for the heart. His involvement in spirituality began in child- hood as he has been a seeker of truth for the major part of his life. His writing of books sud- denly started on a trip to India in the 1988 and grew drawing a worldwide audience. He has been called as guest speaker in many coun- tries. In Japan he addressed a crowd of over 3500 people, and many hundreds in other countries. He also spoke in New York a couple of years ago. He took part in recently in a movie in Hollywood called “Justice for Hire”. Kancho taught the Australian Army for two years. He was also a national coordinator for “Vision Australia” helping people with sight impairment. He was nominated ‘Australian of the Year”. He has now produced many books in hard copies: Discovering Martial Art, Bu- doka-True Spiritual Warriors, Poems of the Spiritual Heart. His audio books are “Goshin- The Secret Revealed”, “The Adventure of Gugu”, “My Dear Driver”, My Dear Child”, “My Dear Student”. Kancho started an organi- zation called “Sanctuary 108” and have as- sisted many people with depression. He has saved many lives over many years and wants to continue this effort on a world scale. He has now started NKA International to unify the teaching of Budo to bring mar- tial artists together for the upliftment of human beings. To share human values in a program called “KarateCare”. The human values are Truth, Love, Peace, Right Conduct and Non Violence. NKA comprise of teachers globally for the pure purpose of reigniting Traditional Karat- eDo which had lost its way for decades. Teach- ers have come from different countries with their clear objective of making a difference, as in their hearts know KarateDo had taken a wrong direction of making it a game. We have teachers from many countries and we will continue to grow. Teachers in our team are determined to improve life skills of students by bringing back good discipline, better self control training, education in human values, improvised character develop- ment programs, confidence development train- ing and the true art of KarateDo. As we believe KarateDo comprises of three aspects Physical ( Body), Mental (Mind) and Spiritual ( Life). NKA is a brand new Karate organization that focuses on the pure essence of traditional karate that embraces human values. We are deter- mined to lift the character of our students through our KarateCare Program. The intensity of karate practice does not just lie on the physi- cal practice it is also that of the nature of the person who practices the art. If bad people practice karate no one is safe. If good people practice the art everyone is safe. Our aim is to convert the people with bad ways to become good and those who are good to become better. Goshin Kan has been working very hard on many aspects of KarateDo since it inception. In our schools we have implemented various ideas that has had outstanding results. Parents and students are very happy with our KarateCare programs as this has been improving our students’ character in all avenues of their lives. We have safe ways of physical train- ing, great ways of mental training and life skills training that works. The radi- ance of what we do will be moving to many all around the world and to- gether with the international teachers lift life for all our students. The prime objective of NKA Interna- tional is to band together like minded teachers world wide who desire to impart the pure essence of traditional karate do disciplines and values to all its students. Every school within NKA International will have its own knowl- edge base of style or system of impart- ing physical techniques. This opera- tion of each school operates under its own medium of understanding in terms of physical technique. This will allow each to have the freedom to operate as they seem fit as long as there is no cause for concern of what happens to the students physically or mentally. We accept all, into NKA International immaterial of style or system. We believe there is not one way of executing technique however, in terms of disciplines and values we have a united format under one ban- ner. Our system is non competitive as we find there is a growing interest in non tournament world wide. Many have asked Kancho Deena Naidu to create such an organization for many years but he was reluctant to do so as he thought it was best to keep this only within his own organization called Goshin Kan. This has been working superbly and the transformations of many students were beyond all expec- tations. This together with the growing need for change in the world inspired Kancho to have a world organization. Kancho Deena Naidu has been a hard- ened loyal student of Gogen Yamagu- chi sensei for many decades. He choose the path of his teacher who was very happy at this and that was teach- ing karate for defense only with spe- cial emphasis on human development. The other objectives of developing character through Education in Human Values. His teacher was proud of him while he was alive and I am sure he will continue to be happy with from the “Botswana seminar is very special. I will do my best for those who are sincere and who respond. I would like everyone to respond quicker and I will give my heart”. Kancho Deena Naidu

  6. 6. Interest in the various forms of martial art has been growing stead- ily in English speaking countries during the last 30 to 40 years. Sadly martial arts is seen by most practitioners and observers as a means of immobilizing an opponent, whether in tournament or eve- ryday life. It has been demonstrated through university-based re- search in Western Australia that young people become more ag- gressive in their speech, attitudes and behaviour after learning some form of martial arts, when contrasted with measures taken before they attended any classes. There seems to be a movement away from purely self defence towards offensive and abusive to- wards others. What a blight this is on what was once the good repu- tation attached to these centuries-old techniques; and what a fester- ing is growing in our midst when increasing numbers of disaffected youth are being taught to behave with violence in thought, word and deed. There is a saying: “The darker the night, the brighter shines the light.” Seen against the background of martial arts as it is per- ceived and taught today, the work of Kancho Deena Naidu stands out light a beacon of light showing the way across stormy seas of anger, selfishness and violence saturating many of the Martial Arts movements today. This is not to say that he is alone in his task. Many stars can be seen in the vast darkness of the night sky. Yet he stands out in his ability to inspire, guide and teach others in the ancient traditions which hold that serenity, compassion, responsi- bility, truth and non-violence are as essential to the Martial Arts as salt to the sea water. Kancho Naidu has 45 years of serious study in a number of styles of martial arts. He took lessons in the fighting arts at the early age of 11 years. By January, 1971 he had started training in Budo-Ryu ka- rate at the Zenuki Karate Institute, a well known karate organization in South Africa. By good fortune (or God’s grace) his chief instructor, Sensei Jam Mohan was steeped in knowledge which extended beyond the physical aspects of the fighting Arts, incorporating the mental and spiritual aspects as well. The seeds fell on fertile ground, making a deep impression upon the young Naidu, and leaving him with a yearning to delve further into the hidden (forgotten) teachings un- derlying all martial arts. After four years at the Zenuki karate Institute Deena Naidu started his own organisation known as Hirosaki Karate, with three mem- bers of the first school having lessons on the foundation slab of a garage. The school quickly grew in size and moved to bigger premises in a community hall. Soon that too was over flowing with new members. As it caught up in a flash-flood of community interest in karate, with new schools being established at a rapid rate Kancho, Deena Naidu, affectionately known as Sensei Dino by many, felt the need to make contact with more advanced teachers who focused on the spiritual aspects of karate-do. In 1975 he went to Japan and studied under Grand Master Gogen Yamaguchi Hanshi. Unknowingly he made an impression upon the other students with his absolute dedi- cation to training and the acquisition of further knowledge. Al- though he showed little interest in gaining grades his obvious talent led to his becoming the sixth person in the world to have graduated from the famous Japan karate-do College. As well as being an instructor of Budo-Ryu he became a qualified instructor of Japanese weapons and gained credentials in five other styles of Karate. Before leaving Japan Gogen Sensei gave told him that he could use the name Goshin kan. Upon his return to South Africa he established many other schools. At the university Of Durban-Westville karate became a subject for students in physical education. His creativity as a teacher grew in a way that he began introducing new and innovative ways of integrat- ing the spiritual into the physical aspects of karate. Word quickly spread that here was style that not only gave confidence and prow- ess in self defence, but also led to the discovery of an inner joy, peace and wisdom. In 1981 left Goshin kan South Africa in very capable hands and immigrated to Australia. Here, from a small school in Blacktown to many locations. Following up an invitation to observe one of his classes in action, I discovered a sense of peace and strength in the hall as I entered, and this powerful serenity remained throughout the lesson. He has teachers who have great warmth and humility and respect for authority. Through all of my association with him I found Kancho Deena Naidu to be a man with enormous talent, both as a practitioner and a teacher of karate-do, yet one who believed that all of his skill was by the grace of God. He believes that, although the karate instruc- tor demonstrated physical skills and power, of greater importance is that he/she be a living example to the students of values. He con- tends that it is the role of the teacher to inspire and be a model of what lies ahead of the student, and that the ‘sins’ of pride and arro- gance have to be kept under watch so that they do not appear and poison the instructor and the class. On one occasion Kancho gave a talk on humility and said that a teacher is a servant of the student. He demonstrated this by wash- ing the feet of two students. This so moved the class that tears were seen in many eyes. Such a man is not afraid to be called weak and misguided by his peers in the field of Martial arts. A certain mysterious strength seems to pervade those who imbued with goodness and faith. Kan- cho is one who knows that he is in the forefront of an exponential change that will transform not only the Martial arts community, but all of society. I am honoured to call Kancho Deena Naidu my friend. He inspires me with his enthusiasm for life and good living, his fearless applica- tion of compassionate discipline in all aspects of his personal life, and his dedicat5ion to the rediscovery and regeneration of the spiritual quest underlying all traditional forms of martial arts. His voice which will be heard, read and re-told. His is a vision which will inspire others, like a candle which lights a thousand others without diminishing its own light.

Those of us from Africa, this an opportunity to go and learn true Traditional KarateDo from these three Living Legends of the Old Guard who had never been shaken and coerced into joining the bandwagon. They have remained true to tra- dition and strictly followed the teachings of their teachers. It will be an honor to receive teaching from such esteemed teachers of the art.
  8. 8. In this article Kancho Deena Naidu expresses his desire to contribute to Australia and to oth- ers around the world importance of the teach- ings of human values and life virtues. This arti- cle has some of his thoughts, parts of his learning and understanding. Kancho Deena Naidu is one of the leading exponents of traditional karate-do both here in Australia and abroad. He has a strong stance for the promotion and retention of this long-established art. It is his opinion, as with most karate-ka from the old school of thinking, through the practice of traditional Karate, good values and virtues must be retained. The importance of this, he says, it invariably builds up a better society of Budo-ka thereby contributing to an improved community. In order to enhance the quality of life within his student community, he teaches Education in Human Values and Virtues (EHVV). This intense Human Values and Virtues program has taken years to develop and is designed for karate-do practitio- ners. This practice has now being adopted by other traditional schools and martial arts systems that are directly associated with his organisation. His students and associated members of his service are enjoying and greatly benefiting from this high level of EHVV or educare program. Kancho Deena Naidu believes that ‘the development of character is equally important as the physical aspects of the art.’ He says, “In most situations it is one’s character that either gets one into trou- ble or away from it. Without the implementation of values and vir- tues in class, students may become ego driven, lost without proper guidance, and may use the art incorrectly. This is because the young human mind can easily be subjected to negative influences which are constantly around them, as we have seen in so many cases. Any organisation that guides its students with moral ethics and values will be assisting the community and country in improving the qual- ity of its people and thereby supporting the world to become a bet- ter and a safer place. This is the desire of every good human being on the planet. Parents who send their children to learn Goshin Kan karate is be- cause emphasis is given to Human Values and effective karate-do instruction. These parents like most, have a great concern for the well being of their children and their future. They believe the world is becoming unsafe and immorality is so wide spread that its influ- ences are creeping into these young minds from many sources. Goshin kan’s teachings is what is needed and from reports received it seems that they love all the aspects of what is being taught and many people regardless of their age have benefited from these unique teachings. Adults who also participate in their classes are saying that all martial arts schools, corporate businesses, hospitality industries etc. could benefit from this unique and terrific method of learning and teachings. This lifts the human being into a far better state of understanding of himself/herself and others and gives value to life in terms of love and respect. Like most who have a more knowledgeable understanding of life, parents are beginning to believe that correct influence at the earliest stage of a young life will help children grow and develop to become a more evolved human being. It is the negative exposure from the many sources on those who do not know the difference that is corrupting the young minds to think it is okay to be improper in behaviour and attitudes. Goshin Kan no doubt is having a tremendous positive impact on all young minds and parents love it. About Kancho Deena Naidu Kancho was a student of the world famous Gogen Yamaguchi Sensei, who was the president of the world renowned, Japan karate do College in Tokyo, Japan. He graduated out of this college in 1976 and became the sixth graduate in the world. He was well liked by his teacher, journeyed together with him and Mamasan (wife of Gogen Sensei), to a number of places and has had the privilege of having a number of private lessons with his famous and respected teacher. Kancho has in his possession, a number of memorabilia from his teacher Gogen Sensei and Gogen Sensei’s family and some great stories to go with them. Gogen Sensei had an extreme desire to keep the traditional light of karate-do burning for as long as the world needed it. We all know that the karate world needs it more than ever. It is a known fact that there aren’t many schools teaching tradition any more. The karate world is moving into new trends and tendencies and many young martial arts have little or no inclination of what the real purpose and goals of Karate-do, or what the pur- pose of life is. Many think of the art as a tool for fighting and hurting others. This is because of the way it is depicted through some sources of the media. Kancho says, ‘There is nothing in the real art of karate-do that teaches you how to fight, what it teaches you are how to defend yourself and how not to fight. Karate is just a tool to help one protect oneself. Through learning this skill one has to engage oneself in learning other skills which come with the art such as discipline, self control, etiquette etc. Life is about learning and gaining experience and also about a continuous self improvement. It is more than the mundane things most people do daily. Life is about our own inner discovery and has a journey far greater than that of the five senses.’ There is a great need for instructors to give students lessons of true Budo or Bujutsu, rather than the frilly type of martial arts that looks good but does not work, in all areas of the true art such as the physi- cal, mental and spiritual. Only a few could deliver this type of knowledge. It is Kancho’s opinion that this is one of the reasons for Gogen Sensei establishing the Zen Nihon (All Japan) karate-do Col- lege. In this college subjects such as Yoga, different forms of karate and spirituality were taught. Even in those early years of the col- lege, only a few could grasp Gogen Sensei’s concept that Karate-do is much more than just the physical. Very few foreigners would attend the Yoga training, meditation or any of the lessons concern- ing the deeper concepts of Gogen Sensei’s understanding, he said. A few months prior to his death, Gogen Sensei made this statement to Kancho, “Thousands of students heard but only a few listened. Many think that karate-do is about Jiyu Kumite (free fighting) and it is not.” Kancho remembers his Japanese friends telling him on a number of occasions that many foreign students only come to Japan to learn to fight. Very few really took what Japanese traditional teachers were giving them, such as learning discipline, developing respect for teachers, being humble and non egoistic etc. Kancho Deena Naidu like a few others around him intend keeping the traditional light burning. He says,“we have reignited the flame of truth of karate-do and we are going to keep this light burning for as long as it takes. It makes a huge difference to everyone who embraces it and does so by changing their lives for the better and also improves their level of awareness”. This light represents the teachings of Gogen Sensei and other great teachers, says Kancho Deena Naidu. Both Goshin-Kai and Goshin Kan believe in the concept of truth and it explores all areas with deeper under- standing. ‘The missing Link to Tradition’ The Need for Human Values and Life Virtues in Karate and other Bujutsu Arts
  9. 9. It is time for change. NKA International is a registered Karate organization that is going live on the 23rd October 2015. For those of you that are not aware, NKA is a brand new Karate organization that focuses on the pure essence of traditional karate that embraces human values. We are determined to lift the character of our students through our KarateCare Program. The intensity of ka- rate practice does not just lie on the physical practice it is also that of the nature of the person who practices the art. If bad people practice karate no one is safe. If good peo- ple practice the art everyone is safe. Our aim is to convert the people with bad ways to become good and those who are good to become better. We comprise of teachers globally for the pure purpose of reigniting traditional Karat- eDo which had lost its way for decades. Teachers have come from different countries with their clear objective of making a differ- ence, as in their hearts know KarateDo had taken a wrong direction of making it a game. We have teachers from many countries and we will continue to grow. Teachers in our team are determined to improve life skills of students by bringing back good discipline, better self control training, education in human values, improvised character devel- opment programs , confidence development training and the true art of KarateDo. As we believe KarateDo comprises of three aspects Physical ( Body), Mental (Mind) and Spiritual ( Life). Goshin Kan has been working very hard on many aspects of KarateDo since it inception. Naidu to create such an organization for many years but he was reluctant to do so as he thought it was best to keep this only within his own organization called Goshin kan. This has been working superbly and the transformation of many students were beyond all expectations. This together with the growing need for change in the world inspired Kancho to have a world organiza- tion. NKA has a system called KarateCare which was developed to build character in stu- dents. KarateCare is based on fives human values as its knowledge base. These values are Truth, Love, Peace, Right Conduct and Non Violence. It is a special program of learning and developing the human charac- ter. If character is good then the environ- ment is safe. People of good character are of no threat to anyone. The ones with good character are an asset to the group, society and land they belong too. Teachers are spe- cially trained to impart this knowledge to students. It is time for change.

The prime objective of NKA International is to band together like minded teachers world wide who desire to impart the pure essence of traditional karate do disciplines and val- ues to all its students. Every school within NKA International will have its own knowl- edge base of style or system of imparting physical techniques. This operation of each school operates under its own medium of understanding in terms of physical tech- nique. This will allow each to have the free- dom to operate as they seem fit as long as there is no cause for concern of what hap- pens to the students physically or mentally. We accept all, into NKA International imma- terial of style or system.

It is hard to find an organization in this present day that will em- brace all styles and systems into one. This is the objective of NKA. KarateDo has had it separa- tion from the land of its birth Okinawa, and then to Japan it grew into many more divisions. It is now numbered in the hundreds as it traveled around the world with many styles and systems . For the first time there is an organization that embraces “All as One”. NKA has a system called KarateCare which was developed to build character in students. KarateCare is based on fives human values as its knowledge base.

Our Team This team comprises of teachers within and from different states in Australia as well as from a number of lands. All are experienced teachers. We will soon have them on our web site NKA International. Kancho Deena Naidu He has been a hardened loyal student of Gogen Sensei for many decades. He choose the path of his teacher who was very happy at this and that was teaching karate for defence only with spe- cial emphasis on human development. The other objectives of developing character through Education in Human Values. His teacher Now a light is about to ignite that shows it true picture. The picture is that strong people in uniforms only use it to defend but offer love to the enemies. Many seem to grasp this and say Wow! It is only the courageous who can do this. The weak are the violent. The weak are those whose agendas is to settle difference with violence. In NKA students learn the sim- ple techniques of avoidance at all costs, if unavoidable then only physical defense will be necessary. Such is the philosophy and teachings of NKA.

I am in my 2nd year of my 7th Dan grade induction. He was to grade and confer me the 7th Dan anytime this year. I wish that this grading be done within and by the NKA to help fulfil my teachers wish. He did confer Dai Soke status, making me inheri- tor of Oikado. I need your guidance and ad- vice. Some organizations are ready to grade me. I am not after the belt, the 7th Dan grad- ing was a Spiritual call on my teacher having been his loyal disciple for 30yrs. 11/05/2015 11:56AM Dear Teacher of the art. I am willing to do this for you. Ours is not only a physical grading it is deeper, it is about spiritual development as well. I can issue the grading immediately, but I have not met you personally which i would sincerely like to do. If you want to obtain a grading from someone else you could. But as you say it is not the grade you after. You can call your self this level until i see and examine you personally and then make it official. Your teacher would have been happy to have given you this grade and it is sad that he did not and he passed away before the task was complete. So I will say take this level as a blessing from your teacher and I will be in your country next year to officially ordain you. If anyone ques- tions you can use me as giving you that level. Unless you can find sponsors to sponsor me to your country to this before the year ends. I would be happy to do this also. Great Osu! I am happy and through you my Spirit moves knowing,I have found a teacher in you that will help me fill up the calabash I was left with.

  17. 17. Page 22Volume 2 A Better World is Our Theme. Karate is the start. We are powerful con- tributes towards world peace. The whole concept of Human Values is to improve the character of the karate com- munity. it is important for the students to learn to value others, appreciate and ac- cept people for who they are. As we all are one humanity and must develop human dignity of regard and respect towards. The purpose of it all is avoidance rejecting, belittling and insulting others. Taking care of others rushing to help others in distress is the first step forward, even where ten- sion exists. It is so easy to ignore, looking the other way, avoiding and thinking it is not my problem. Part of our human dignity is to love and we do this with service and care. That is the reason I called our program KarateCare. Saying sorry if one is wrong, asking for forgiveness if one had made a mistake in the past. Favoring reconciliation due to misunderstanding. Our program is about Listening. I say to the students this means focus on learning through listening. Listen to what others are saying. How do you know about others, you do this by paying attention and be kind by lending your ear? Today in Human life many are insensitive and cold towards the feelings of others. We need to care more, offer support. We share human values daily, we tell stories about our great heroes of human life. To- day children are looking for role models and mentors. They turn to starts, sports champions etc. and many do not conduct them self in a proper way. So we as karate teachers want to develop students in a way they become role models for others. By doing this the world becomes better. What makes us human is our inner nature of goodness and righteousness. We as a karate organization want to bring the best out of stu- dents. We as teachers and as an organization think about what are the attributes that consti- tutes a good human person. It is kindness, forgiveness, tolerance, compassion and love. We want our students to develop good natures so that they can integrate into the society or community much better. I believe we are all born with a divine nature and through associa- tion and influences this can becomes good or bad. The mind does not know how to discrimi- nate; it is the learning that does this. And it improves our conscious state to become better in our ways. We commit to serving humanity through a re- turn to human values and we have chosen our vehicle as KarateDo. NKA International has been launched on 23 October 2015 and is open for worldwide membership and affiliation by teachers of the art to help spread and teach the message. This ia our promise.

  18. 18. The OIKADO Martial Arts School is proud to present its Grassroots Development Program for 2010 – 2020. It is a result of work by the OIKADO National Executive Council and Technical Board and has em- braced all stakeholders of the school. This third phase of the program is set in the back- ground of unprecedented unity and drive demonstrated in the first phase (1995-2000) and the second phase (2006-2010) to take karate to the public. Recent developments in Oikado Black Belts cadre resolve is to speak and act in unity and also paramount to de- liver martial arts/karate practice to the pub- lic in a coordinated and structured way. Crucial to the program was the appointment of a strong and active National Technical Board headed by Kyoshi Moses Topsoil Kgosibodiba, the Presi- dent of the School, Shihan Gaabadzo Moseki, Chairman Technical Board. Plus eight (8) active black belts of instructorship status drawn across the breath and length of Botswana. The Grassroots Development Program sits alongside and personal, educational, careers, emotional, physical and spiritual dimensions. The school aims to achieve these goals and in 2001-2005 & 2006-2014 we embarked on the re-engineering exercise and increased the number of instructors in order to expand the program throughout the country. The results have been dramatic, primarily because enthusiasm for martial arts practice and training does exist in local communities. Martial arts/karate offers a genuine and safe alternative and augments other performing arts and sporting codes. Its popularity is growing in leaps and bounds at secondary schools, colleges and univer- sity. It has attracted international interest. Funds’ permitting our wish is to cascade the program down to primary school children, to rural communities near and remote. Osu! the re-engineering (1995-2005) and (2006- 2009) phases of the school. The purpose of the program is to demon- strate how martial arts/karate at grassroots level will proceed from now and where it will be by 2020.It underpins the school’s application for funding from your good insti- tution. It will also serve as a valuable tool for moni- toring and evaluating achievements against milestones laid down. Vital to the program success is the need to regularly review and where appropriate make adjustments. The Grassroots Development Program seeks to embrace and build the key compo- nent required to achieve Youth Develop- ment. At the core is the desire to enable individuals to experience as positive, fun and free atmosphere of martial arts/karate practice and training and go on to fulfill their true potential in the arts and across various areas of their development: social, Karate Motivation Program: for Children, Young Teens & Adults OIKADO Grassroots Development & Out-Reach Program: a summary Page 23 S O L O M Z I Oikado News Letter Letter Thank you for taking time to read and discuss the Schools Karate Motivation Training Pro- gram for Children and Young Teens. Kyoshi Moses Kgosibodiba, a world class karate trainer and instructor is now offering Karate Motivation Training program to chil- dren in Botswana and SADC member coun- tries. The program beneficiaries are children and teens at primary (5-12yrs), junior (13-15yrs), and senior (16-21 yrs) schools. The program teaches martial arts/karate, motivation and discipline to students and have resulted in students who are fit and much disciplined. As every teacher knows, the benefits of a disciplined student are enormous as they study well at school and at home. Do and submit their homework on time and prepare for tests and examination in time. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The program also teaches self-confidence and will highlight the dangers of smoking, drug abuse and alcohol. We believe that fit and disciplined students will benefit the students themselves, the school system, teachers and parents and the community and society in which they reside. This program takes students away from lazi- ness, smoking, drinking and gets them in- volved and motivated to become better stu- dents. No other program offers such benefits! The program will be taught and presented by Mr. Moses Kgosibodiba, who has over 35 years experience as a world class instructor. By this submission we wish to roll out the program to primary, junior and senior secon- dary schools.

MA Brief of Kancho Deena Naidu, NKA International Goshin Karate Do Page 27 S O L O M Z I Oikado News Letter Letter Profile A results oriented teacher of Humanities, prac- titioner and teacher of the martial arts with good interpersonal, communication, research and analytical skills. Ranko Shihan is a good planner, organizer, decision-maker and pre- senter. This has been proven by his success as a teacher in Junior and Senior Secondary School, College Lecturer and of the martial arts for the past thirty years as evidenced by the number of many students he has produced some of whom are experienced black belts and teachers of the art as well. We affectionately call him Ninja at Oikado given that he likes training late at night. Full of stealth and a firm believer of “secrecy in silence and silence in secrecy”. He was among the first three(3) to grade Shodan in Oikado. An formidable kata performer with impeccable agility during is prime years. Ninja and I and Jonah Madibela Shihan planted the Oikado seed when we went into schools as teachers wherein we introduced Oikado. Kyoshi Moses Kgosibodiba Lions’ Den Dojo Group Botswana Martial Arts Brief & Profile: Lions’ Den Dojo Group Botswana Shihan Ranko Boniface Motlalekgosi Kancho Deena Naidu was born in the year 1949 in South Africa. His mother gave birth to him prematurely. Kancho graduated in the Japan Karate Do College in Tokyo in 1976, 6th in the world under Grandmaster Gogen Yamaguchi and became the only one South African to have done so in the world. “ Gogen sensei took me in as a son”, he said. Kancho lives in Australia in the suburb of Sydney where he runs an inter- national organization called NKA International Goshin Karate-Do. His teaching does not involve competitions or tournaments of any kind as he believes that this is the breeding ground for ego and competitions he be- lieves does very little to improve character or help people defend them- selves. He says, karate has three parts: physical for body, mental for the mind and spiritual for the heart. His involvement in spirituality began in childhood as he has been a seeker of truth for the major part of his life. His writing of books suddenly started on a trip to India in the 1988 and grew drawing a worldwide audience. He has been called as guest speaker in many countries. In Japan he addressed a crowd of over 3500 people, and many hundreds in other countries. He also spoke in New York a couple of years ago. He took part in recently in a movie in Hollywood called “Justice for Hire”. Kancho taught the Australian Army for two years. He was also a national coordinator for “Vision Australia” helping people with sight impairment. He was nominated ‘Australian of the Year”. He has now produced many Books in hard copies: Discovering Martial Art, Budoka-True Spiritual Warriors, Poems of the Spirituaal Heart. His audio books are “Goshin-The Secret Re- vealed”, “The Adventure of Gugu”, “My Dear Driver”, My Dear Child”, “My Dear Student”. Kancho started an organization called “ Sanctuary 108” and have assisted many people with depression. He has saved many lives over many years and wants to continue this effort on a world scale. He has now started NKA International to unify the teaching of Budo to bring martial artists together for the upliftment of human beings. To share human values in a program called “KarateCare”. The human values are Truth, Love, Peace, Right Conduct and Non Violence.
