Join The SportAccord
The World Koshiki Karate Federation aims for Koshiki Contact Karate to become a sport recognized by Sport Accord, in part because of Koshiki Contact Karate’s safety and clear judgment system.
Sport Accord operates the Paralympics, World Games, Universiade, and other prestigious sporting events.
What is Sport Accord?
Sport Accord is an organization officially recognized by the IOC in 1967, and the world’s largest sport organization, which operates the Paralympics, World Games, Universiade and others.
In addition, the Sport Accord manages 16 International sport organizations and 109 International sport federations. The Sport Accord is closely related to the IOC, and the IOC selects additional games from the list of Sport Accord’s recognized sports.
Join the World Games!
The World Games include sports which are often destined for future Olympic recognition. Indeed, eight sports from the World Games became Olympic sports in the past.
The World Games are held every four years, with 96 sports competing in events over 10 days with many top world athletes.
Establishment of Safety
Koshiki Contact Karate?
Koshiki Contact Karate is a worldwide sport of contact karate featuring safety equipment and clear judgment while enabling full contact techniques.
In 1978, So-Shihan Masayuki Hisataka, 9th Dan, developed the “Super Safe” equipment for Karate.
The “Super Safe” equipment enables clear judgment and safety during competition while enabling full contact punches, striking, and kicking.
Since that time, 32 All Japan Karate tournaments and 20 World Championship Tournaments have been held.
Currently, new equipment featuring electric contact sensors is being developed ahead of the next World Championship in June 2016.
