Matsumura Kyuukaku

„I still can not believe, that we had such a big privilege as a Japanese master, Matsumura Kyuukaku made our kanji not only for the World Championship of 2009. ( sekai saikyo ), but also the symbol of our new World Organization ( HIKO )” – said it Sensei Sandor Brezovai in a report. The perfectly custom-designed kanji represents priceless ideal values, because practically it is unrepeatable. It includes all things, what the fighting and the art means separately or as a whole.

The kanji is a concept-signing writing system from China, which works with „pictures”. The kanjis stand together from smaller components. The takeover and spreading of the kanjis in Japan were arranged for the 6th Century. Originally in the Japanese dictionaries of kanjis there were about 50.000 signs, but at the end of the II. World War the writing system has become much simpler, so by now it includes only 1945 signs. In Japan the most intelligent people can read 5-6000 kanjis – so the ancient signs will be able to live longer. A common person, by the time he is twenty, knows about 2500-3000 signs. The kanjis has clear meanings very rarely. In the insular country these kanji painters are respected very much – to be a kanji painter is more than a job, it is an art. Nowadays there work only a few really good kanji painters in Japan, but they are hold in the greatest respect all over the country.
