    Karate into the Olympics

    'The inclusion of Karate to the Olympics gives hopes and dreams to everybody in the karate world and also to the next generation.'

    Looking forward to the Tokyo Olympics 2020, Japan Karatedo Federation, in coordination with the WKF, has been making every effort for the inclusion of Karate into the Olympics with the support of Nippon Budo-kan, Japan Budo Association, and the All-Party Parliamentary Group for the Promotion of the Tokyo Olympics 2020, which has been set up with more than 110 members from both Houses of Parliament. Now we are in the middle of our signature-collecting campaign together with JKF & WKF members and all karate fans.

    In order to publicise the overwhelming wave of passionate vocal support for Karate to the Olympics to the world, as well as in Japan, we would like to ask your full support for and cooperation with this online signature-collecting campaign.

  • Is your EKF Licence Valid?

    Is your licence valid?Members are reminded that to participate in any EKF event, they must have a current and valid EKF licence.

    Due to some abusing the current system, anyone who is unable to produce their licence on request, will be barred from participating in any EKF event including squad training, competitions, referee course, etc.

    If you have any doubts about the validity of your licence you are advised to check with your instructor or head of association. Licences are only valid for 12 months, and each carry a unique number.

    Check that number, and be sure you are a member, so as not to be disappointed. NO LICENCE MEANS NO PARTICIPATION.
