2014 WTKO International Camp and Competition

Since our 2013 event in Thun, Switzerland the WTKO Executive Committee along with our affiliate instructors in California have been busy planning all aspects of the event. From the instructors we have scheduled, the scenic location, and many of the WTKO International & Domestic Affiliates that have already committed to attending, this years event is not to be missed.

The schedule includes a variety of rank specific classes, an International Tournamnet, beach training, Yoga classes taught by Yanti Amos, and Iaido training taught by Sensei John Mullin.

In the next few days additional information regarding our 2014 event will be released (Camp fees, travel, and accomidations).

The WTKO is an alternative that truly is non-political in that our only requirements are technical integrity and hopefully a traditional Shotokan karate background.  The WTKO does not dictate to athletes or countries what tournaments they can participate in or restrict athletes in any manner.  We feel that the free exchange of ideas and athletic activity is the essence of freedom and democracy.
