Yoshihide SUGA, 2nd Dan of Karate (President of the Parliamentary Federation for the Promotion of Karate-do) Became the 99th Prime Minister!!

On Wednesday, September 16, SUGA, the president of the Liberal Democratic Party, was elected the 99th Prime Minister as a result of the prime minister nomination election held at the plenary session of both houses of the Diet.

Mr. SUGA belonged to the Goju-ryu Karatedo Club when he was a student at Hosei University, and was training his mind and body.

Speaking to the All Japan Karate-do Federation in 2014 for its magazine, Mr. SUGA said, “The things I developed through karate-do have served me well after I entered politics. I am keenly aware that the mental strength to endure difficulties was forged in the karate-do club.”

In addition, he became the President of the Parliamentary Federation for the Promotion of Karate-do, which was established in June 2014.
At that time, karate was aiming to adopt the official event of the Tokyo Olympics, and despite the position of a member of the Diet, it has contributed to the spread of karate competition.
