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.
