Welcome to the official website Of the W.C.K.F.
This is the official site for the World Christian Karate Federation. (WCKF). The WCKF is a non-political Federation. That is based on the teachings and methodology of the All Karate through to the early leadership of all karate. The WCKF is an for groups, Schools, individuals, and National federation that practice traditional karate who wish to preserve the values and principals that made All karate the paramount karate style through out the world. The WCKF presents you with an opportunity to network with like-minded individuals, groups, and Federation while both avoiding politics and being able to share information with each other regardless of race, religion or nationality. As an alliance, we endeavor to form a circle of friendship that would surpasses all boundaries and promote the understanding and technical enhancement of karate. Above all else, we believe that karate is a martial science and a way of life that trains the practitioner to be peaceful, yet has the capability to terminate an opponent with a single blow. Of course, such action requires power, swiftness, focus and control. Nevertheless, these physical aspects are just the vehicle, but not the journey itself. This journey is based on Bushido where the body, mind and spirit are developed concurrently through training in kihon, kumite and kata. Hence the practitioner learns to both control and to relinquish control to the movements until the techniques are performed without thought while remaining focused. In essence, the body remembers how to move while the mind remembers how to be still.
As a result, one becomes the embodiment of true karate because this method of training exemplifies a natural and effortless action where peace is possible through the perfect unity of mind, body and spirit. This is the core teaching of Zen as well as the philosophy of the WCKF.
Therefore, for all groups and individuals who understand our philosophy and wish to practice traditional karate in the manner described above, you are welcome to join the WCkF Karate. The WCKF are now associate members of the Shotokan Karate Unions family with representation in over 30 countries and as members of the WCKF you have access to SKU activities. On behalf of the entire World (WCKF), I thank you for you interest in becoming affiliated with the WCKF and extend a warm welcome and best wishes for your karate success.
