About The WTKO
The WTKO is an alternative that truly is non-political in that our only requirements are technical integrity and hopefully a
traditional Shotokan background. The WTKO does not dictate to athletes or countries what tournaments they can participate in or restrict athletes in any manner. We feel that the free exchange of ideas and athletic activity is the essence of freedom and democracy.
The WTKO is an
organization for groups and individuals that practice traditional Shotokan karate and wish to preserve the values and
principals that exemplifies Shotokan of the 70's and 80's and made
Shotokan karate the
pre-eminent karate style through out the world. The WTKO presents
you with an opportunity to network with like-minded individuals and
groups from around the world, while both avoiding politics and
being able to share information with various groups regardless of
The WTKO will
support the activities of
its affiliate and associate members around the world. The WTKO will also conduct
international judges seminars and instructor training programs.
