In other Karate tournaments a warning is only given, with Yowai "Ineffective technique".

 

SATKF-WTKF competition benefits
Traditional Karate Muno penalty rule, is not used in most general karate tournaments today, Nishiyama Sensei was brilliant in creating this rule.
In other Karate tournaments a warning is only given for contact or impact or anouncing Yowai "Ineffective technique", and not for

poor technique, this leads to problems(fortunately many times the bad techniques misse. These poor techniques are not penalised

This Muno rule is especially good to have with children and warns the competitor that they are doing a poor techniques

This also leads to preventing injuries in competitions.

Master Nishiyama

The Ultimate Shotokan Master

Direct student of Shotokan founder Master Gichin Funakoshi.

 

Master Nishiyama's knowledge of Karate-do and Budo with scientific approach

is incredible to experience.

 It is such a privilege to have him as our leader and to be able to train

and gain knowledge from him. His ability to pass on knowledge and eagerness to share is a rarity.

Producing ki energy, is of Master Nishiyamas most outstanding abilities.

Generating immense energy, charged into the lower stomach (tanden)

which is then delivered to the contact area through parts of the body.

Producing force by using strong breath exhalation, different types of exhalation makes different impact or power. this is taken from Budo of which he has such profound knowledge. The Un-soko "footwork" he has mastered has a profound effect on kata and kumite and students of Master Nishiyama can be recognized by there Un-soko ability.

 

SATKF objectives and goals

To preserve Traditional Karate "weaponless art of self defense" which originated from Okinawa, then being established as part of "Budo" (Japanese martial arts system) in mainland Japan. Traditional Karate necessitates long and careful study developing a well-balanced mind and body, through training in fighting techniques. These outstanding qualities of Karate-Do are used for the past few decades in Japan as a educational system for children starting them at age of 5years so that they can learn discipline and develop physically and mentally.

This training camp has been conducted for over 30 years by Master Nishiyama. Now the annual ITKF camp in San Diego, California,  this the spiritual and technical source of Traditional Karate.

 Chris Mance having trained at the ITKF headquarters in Los Angeles for Two and Half years under Master Nishiyama

enjoyed being with Master Nishiyama again and  having the wonderful privilege of training with him.

Master Nishiyama was part of the founding of JKA in Japan and then being sent to Los Angeles, USA by JKA to promote JKA

  

The 2007 ITKF week long training program, at which Master Nishiyama taught consisted of; Budo Un-soko "footwork" principles ( these footwork techniques have been mastered

for centuries by the Samurai swordsmen) were taught along with Traditional Okinawan Karate principles. This create a awesome combination and raised the standard of ITKF

Karate-do members to a level not experienced before.

ITKF members are privileged to have Master Nishiyama as the leader him having gained this profound knowledge by having trained with top Budo masters as well

Master Gichin Funakoshi "who introduced Karate-Do from Okinawa".

 

 

Our Mission

To preserve and promote Traditional Karate-Do and Budo in the proper direction and by promoting and strengthening friendly interaction and relations between all Traditional Karate Styles with the basis of Shotokan, to achieve the advancement of sports, spirit and thereby contribute to the perfection of human character.

 

 

Self challenge

Striving to improve oneself each day is the aim of Karate-Do and Budo "Martial Arts"

The study is a continuous effort; laziness and idleness are discouraged.

 

 

Who can become a member of WTKF

Any Traditional Style Karate dojo in South Africa that would like to become member of ITKF through SATKF can make application.

 


WTKF

The World Traditional Karate-do Federation (former International Traditional Karate Federation ITKF) is an international governing body of traditional karate which sets up technical standards for that martial art.

The organization came into being in 1972. The ITKF was responsible for the technical supervision over the ITKF World Championships hosted since 1975 (Los Angeles), the ITKF World Cup and the Regional (Continental) Championships. The ITKF has been also continually developing technical aspects through e.g creating new categories such as en-bu, fuku-go or kogo-kumite.

On August 17th, 2013 the ITKF Extraordinary General Meeting took place at the Japanese Martial Arts and Sports Centre “Dojo-Stara Wies” in Stara Wies (Poland).

By the decision of the General Meeting the ITKF headquarters has been moved from Los Angeles (USA) to Geneva (Switzerland).

The decision was approved by the representatives of 23 following countries:

Armenia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, France, Israel, Japan, Lithuania, Moldova, Paraguay, Peru, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, South Africa, Spain, Turkmenistan,

Ukraine, Uruguay, USA and Venezuela.

The reorganized ITKF was a non-governmental international organization (NGO) whose aim was to promote the Traditional Karate following the decision of the 101st Session of the International Olympic Committee and in accordance with the “ITKF Competition Rules”.

The ITKF was a common platform organization for many schools and styles of traditional karate which are practiced worldwide.

On October 24th, 2014 by the decision of the General Assembly, International Traditional Karate Federation (ITKF) seated in Geneva (Switzerland) changed its name to World Traditional Karate-Do Federation (WTKF). The main aim of the organization remains unchanged. WTKF is going to promote the Traditional Karate following the decision of the 101st Session of the International Olympic Committee
