The IJKA World Association Tokyo was founded on the 2nd of February 2014 by some of the world´s most respected martial arts experts – people with a great history and karate associations of all different countries.
The IJKA World Association Tokyo is liberal, independent and free. It is all about the alliance and not about cultivating a single person or guide who prescribes an ideology with which all Karatekas can identify. Every nation, style, group, association and country has its own faith with their favoured Sensei. This space is not touched by the World Association.
We are an active movement without ownership and pseudonym. We avoid the alienation of the karate community by people who act out of personal interests and fight trench wars and do defamations.
