On behalf of the IFK Executive Board I would like to express our sadness of the news that Shihan Koos van Berkel has passed away.
Shihan Koos started his journey in Kyokushinkai Karate in the early sixties. He was a Country Representative for the IFK in the Netherlands for many years and was deeply respected by martial artists around the globe.
I would like to offer my heartfelt condolences to the family of Shihan Koos.
Hanshi Steve Arneil
President IFK Kyokushin
