We are affiliated to NPO (Non-Profit Organization) World Karate Organization (WKO) ShinKyokushinKai headed by Daihyo Kenji Midori and has its Headquarters based in Tokyo, Japan. 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 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 (Training Halls) have attracted significant attention and expectation.
With an existing base of 300 registered members across 10 Dojos in Singapore and rapidly growing, WKO Singapore has its activities centred on the 3 pillars of nurturing youth, contributing to Singapore society, and promoting international exchange of people and culture. It does this by fostering the practice and development of Full Contact Karate through conducting training sessions, coordinating and organizing gradings, seminars, and participating in national and international level tournaments.
