Welcome to the JKA/WF BELARUS

Many JKA members from all over the world experience some difficulties within existing karate organizations. Some of them found their way in splitting and joining different Shotokan groups. We are a group of JKA black belts in Belarus who are worried about this. Instead of creating a new split, we have found our own way within the JKA. We asked for the assistance of Masao Kawasoe Sensei (JKA/WF) and applied for individual and group membership in JKA/WF. In June 2015, in Tokyo, we had a brief meeting with Toshihiro Mori Shihan (JKA HQ Executive director), who promised his full backing and to whom we express all our gratitude.

Members of our group wish to become or remain member of the Japan Karate Association, the largest and most prestigious karate-do organization in the world. We expect favourable consideration of our request at the Headquarters of JKA and are ready to make every effort to develop our group under their guidance.

JKA/WF Belarus is a group of instructors and students 100% loyal to the JKA who want to study freely in the proper JKA tradition and maintain their roots based in Japan. 
The rules and regulations of the JKA World Federation are scrupulously respected; therefore, we recognize Mr Andrey Vilkin as the sole representative of the JKA in Belarus. We express our sincere appreciation that Mr Vilkin, as the representative of JKA in Belarus, has created the necessary conditions for the development and formation of our group. It will be an honour for us to resume communication and cooperation in a new way, with the development of JKA-Karate in our country as an overall objective.

We belong to Kawasoe Masao Sensei's Group.
