Sensei Eduardo Salas is a special character in the history of traditional karate-do. He has been student, companion and friend of Sensei Nishiyama for more than 20 years. He participated in ITKF negotiations with the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
In 1990, despite the very difficult situation related to the IOC's activities (boycott attempt), he organized the 1. World Traditional Karate Championships ITKF in Lima (Peru). That tournament was the milestone in the development of traditional karate-do worldwide.
Eduardo Salas is also a key person in the development of traditional karate-do in Latin America. His students were a lot of medallists of the world championships, including Sensei Marcos Moron, who passed away in 2015.
In 1992, after the World Championships in Montreal (Canada), Eduardo Salas took up personal development primarily in the field of Tai Chi Chi Kung, the Chinese art of movement, meditation, practice of cultivating long life and martial arts. These exercises build life energy, activate the life and defense forces of the body, give cheerfulness and agility to the body.
In 2017, he actively supported the organization of the 18. Traditional Karate-do Pan-American Championships, which took place in Lima (Peru). Then he was awarded with 9 Dan by WTKF President – Włodzimierz Kwieciński.
