ALL INDIA SHOTOKAN KARATEDO FEDERATION
AFFILIATED TO JAPAN KARATEDO INTERNATIONAL, MIAMI, USA
OF SENSEI YASHUYOSHI SAITO
AFFILIATED BODY: GOLDEN FALCON INTERNATIONAL
The World Shotokan Karatedo Organisation is created solely for the purpose of encouraging the complete martial art of Karatedo learnt in its traditional manner. The WSKO is a non political and non affiliated body which is governed only for a no profit basis for dissemination of the art of Shotokan Karatedo. It is a pure body without any ulterior motives of holding events other than training programmes. The WSK0 will not be involved in its own competitions or in awarding any belts but will help in arranging the training programmes for students. This is very important as in India, many students are not exposed to correct training as well as they cannot afford to go out of India to learn better Karatedo. The WSKO will help in organising the training programmes and yet be a litle aloof from the usual polarisation and partisanship of commercial Karate. We plan to help teachers and students as well as propagate material that will be helpful for the art. In the long term, there may be a philanthropic fund to help its programmes.
The ALL INDIA SHOTOKAN KARATEDO FEDERATION is an association of like minded Shotokan Karate experts all over India and is formed primarily to disseminate the knowledge of traditional Karatedo all over India. We are now planning camps in other parts of the country and a structured programme to encourage students and earnest practitioners of the art to get together on one forum. This organisation is affiiliated to the WORLD SHOTOKAN KARATEDO FEDERATION [TOKYO JAPAN], which is run by HITOSHI KASUYA Sensei who a wold renowned authority in Shotokan Karate. The organisational aims of WSKO and ALL INDIA SHOTOKAN KARATEDO FEDERATION are different and they will be managed by different committees although they may share the same webspace initially.
SENSEI K T HAKEEM, who is an expert and respected teacher in the art of Karatedo and has students all over India, runs the GOLDEN FALCON INTERNATIONAL which is now affiliated to WSKO and all its students are welcome!
In Kerala, Sensei Hakeem has started new classes in Kuttiadi, Kozhikode (Calicut) city, Kerala state of India for the disbursement of knowledge to more students. All the training that occurs here is as per the traditional Karate style called Shotokan Karate which was founded by Gichin Funakoshi. The Karate training program is as per the syllabus set by the Shotokan Karate and the daily training routine also follows the same. The notice shown below is in Malayalam language and is about the new classes that have been just set up. Traditional Karate is an effective tool for self defense and in the modern world that has become a real necessity.
