BTKA British Traditional Karate Association


About BTKA

In the UK (apart from NI) our group is known as the BTKA. This association is registered with the English Karate Federation (EKF) of which we are members. Shihan Chris Thompson is the chairman of the BTKA who is supported by his Executive Officers and the Council.

In other parts of the world the groups are known as Washinkai Spain, Washinkai Norway and Washinkai Ireland. Whilst all are part of the same group the term BTKA isn’t used as it would be irrelevant in other parts of the world.
