3rd August 2016 - To all EKF members:
Karate has finally been accepted into the Olympic Games for Tokyo 2020. I am sure you will join me in thanking everybody concerned for their efforts in achieving this recognition. Michael Billman, EKF President.
Karate is in the Olympic Games. The 129th Session of the International Olympic Committee being held in Rio de Janeiro has decided to incorporate the sport of Karate in the programme of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. This decision represents an outstanding and ground-breaking moment for this ancient discipline. The hopes and dreams of millions of Karatekas around the world came true today. After hundreds of years of history of this sport, and following many years of hard work by the WKF, the Karate family has finally fulfilled their dream of seeing this discipline in the Olympic Games, which will be accomplished precisely in Tokyo, the capital city of the birth nation of the sport.
In its press release, IOC described the decision as "the most comprehensive evolution of the Olympic programme in modern history". Read the full IOC press release clicking here.
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.
