The fundamentals of Technical Commission of IKDS was to persecute the teaching and the Way of MastersFunakoshi, Egami and Murakami in the collective context. The last years for Sensei Giorgio Vecchiet the Way of Sensei Murakami – was always more feeble. In July 2005, during the annual assembly of IKDS, Shihan Giorgio Vecchiet, propose the creation of a SHIHAN-KAI, with him as supervisor for the first four years, to control the fundamentals of teaching of Sensei Tetsuji Murakami.
