World Karate Organization Shinkyokushinkai ( WKO )

President: Kenji Midori

The main philosophy of WKO Shinkyokushinkai, is to “Master our Mind”. With our activities centered on the three pillars of nurturing youth, social contribution, and international exchange, we carry on with our daily efforts to further promote BudoKarate. WKO has now developed into an organization with 80,000 registered members in 81 countries (as of April 2012), and Karate has crossed over all borders, including nationality, race, religion, age, and gender. Karate is loved by the world as a noble Budo (martial art), for it can be trained throughout life, and holds the role of strengthening and enriching one’s mind and soul. The number of youth practitioners has recently increased at a remarkable rate, and in the context of education, Karate dojos have attracted significant attention and expectation.

Ashihara Kaikan ( Ashihara )

President: Hidenori Ashihara

Ashihara karate is a modern full contact street karate developed from Kyokushin karate by Hideyuki Ashihara with influences from various martial arts including Boxing, Muay Thai and Jujutsu with an emphasis on Sabaki. The style is revolutionary as it is solely focused on practical application in a real fight including multiple attackers, a street style, with all techniques taught effective in a real fight against an attacker or multiple attackers of any size. Sabaki is using footwork and techniques to turn an opponent's power and momentum against them and to reposition oneself to the opponent's "blind" spot.

International Federation of Karate ( IFK )

President: Steve Arneil

The IFK (Kyokushin) was founded in 1992 by Hanshi Steve Arneil (10th Dan) to promote on an international basis the teaching, practice and dissemination of information on Kyokushin karate; establish a unified system of kihon, kata and gradings within national organisations; provide an International identity to national organisations; establish a centre for the issue of International Dan Grade Certificates and in providing the above, continue to maintain the national countries’ own independence, ideal and philosophy.

Kyokushin-Kan International Karate Organization ( Kyokushin-Kan )

President: Hatsuo Royama

At Kyokushin-kan, our mission is to DEFEND, REVITALIZE, and ADVANCE the teaching of Kyokushin’s founder, Sosai Masutatsu Oyama. Defending Sosai’s teaching means preventing any deterioration of the best that Kyokushin was durhing Sosai’s lifetime.

All Japan Kyokushin Union ( RENGOKAI )

President: Shihan Shichinohe.

The WAKKU welcomes Kyokushin, and Full Contact Martial Artists to join its ranks, and work towards unifying Kyokushin Karate under one umbrella just the way it was when Sosai built the IKOK.

About us

European Fullcontact Karate Organization

The EFKO " European Fullcontact Karate Organization" is a name with a mission. EFKO aims to unite all the full contact karate Organizations of Europe. By working together, we all will gain extra value to each of us and to all Fullcontact Karate Organizations. We can show the world that we are one big family, whatever the country, whatever the organization, whatever the style, whatever the ability or disability , whatever the level.

We are and we must be “ONE BIG FAMILY” where everybody is welcome!

As we knew before, the 'new' generation in kyokushin is made of fighters who know each other, who respect each other, who shared experiences that are usually once-in-a-lifetime. There is no rivalry between us, there is no King of the World. All we want is, to share with younger people the unique, life changing experience that we had when we came into kyokushin and we were fighting and training all over the world. We have become friends for life, and it is the younger generation that should profit from that - and repeat the process. Us being together and working together also means a great show of respect for the heritage of Sosai Oyama. We are all equal, in our love and devotion for kyokushin.

In the true meaning of Budo we invite everyone to work together with us. The success will be not the success from one person or Organization but the collaboration between all organizations and everyone with a big heart for Full contact karate.

Besides the fact that we want to gain more value by working together, the collaboration is also very important to become a change for the Olympics. We are working hard to get Karate in the Olympics. Therefore we need to be united. We really hope that with good intentions and a lot of respect for each other we can make history.
