Osu K4L-san & all members
I just wanted to give you some public feedback, i figured (guessed) this would be the right forum for it.
Just a note re: this forum and how well i think you run it.
I have have seen some other forums around and to quote Bloke from a different thread...
I have visited many forums over the years and what has killed or damged each one is Politics. We all know that it exists in Kyokushin but it is great to see that we can come together here regardless of affiliation and ignore politics and discuss what is important.
You have transcended the politics here through strict adherence to your policies and rules, and the forum is fantastic because of it.
I have visited other forums, and once, less than 5% of the posts had anything to do with karate, training, fighters, or techniques. Most of the threads denigrated into politics, sledging, and frankly sometimes even offensive behaviour like personal attacks.
The members of the forum are also to be commended. It is fantastic to see members of different organisations come together and assist each other with their karate journey, regardless of which organisation you train under.
That is the spirit of Kyokushin.
That is the spirit of Osu.
Kyokushin is Kyokushin.
Well done! I beleive you have set a new benchmark to which other forums (including mine) should aspire to.
