United in all respects

The United World Karate Federation ( UWKF) was created to assist karate in two ways. The first objective was to support karate into the Olympics. With the late Sosai Kunio Tatsuno and our current President Sosai Chodoin . This initiative was also supported by the late Nishiyama Sensei, Mano Sensei, Crowe Sensei, George Popper and many others that gave unselfishly towards this noble undertaking. Today we can say the rest is history and this achievement has been successful. The only disappointment is that not all karate is included in the Olympics, we are hopeful that the World Karate Federation, which Executive Chairman Imtiaz Abdulla was a senior Vice President from 1994 to 2009, with Espinos where both were elected in 1994 in the WKF Congress in Koto Kinabalu. It was also the year that the WKF requested South Africa to host the 13th World Karate Federation Championship, which we did in 1996 at the World Famous Sun City Superdome giving South Africa notice to hold two world championships in one country in the same year, and only two years to do both, this has never been done again. It was us tha introduced the Cadet and Junior World Champion in the World Karate Federation. This was the platform that assisted in karate’s world-wide popularity and expansion. Executive Chairman Abdulla also won the President of African Karate in 1997, thus liberating African karate with the help of many brothers and sisters in karate in Africa. This was a historic turning point for karate. When Executive Chairman Abdulla took over karate in Africa only 5 countries where activity in African and World events, when he was illegally disposed at an illegal gathering in Algiers in 2009 and the Algerian Mesbahi was illegally installed, with a illegal election arranged by Espinos and the now despised, and disposed YEROLIMPOS, who was then General Secretary. This is when we decided to pursue the Unity and Development of karate for the right reasons and for the preservation of karate for all and standing by the traditional values of karate as a sport and art. We are not interested in been the best our challenging for Olympic recognition as we believe karate as it already and is a world-wide movement without the Olympics, is a benefit for all that practice and take part in this disciplined and beneficial Spartans art. Our reference is Okinawa and the spirit of Okinawa. Training everyday, sweating everyday, uniting everyday, developing everyday and improving the health and lives of all societies everyday for all of the world through karate. Tournaments are a means to us to uniting and developing the youth and the karate population. But is the deepness and benefit in the art that we are more interested in, making everyone a champion is our mission in life. Join the United World Karate Federtion today to join us in this quest of making a better future for all.
