Breaking News - 2019 IOGKF World Budosai - Name Change

Big event name change!!!

The World Budosai has been given a name change!
From now on the event will be known as the Okinawa Dento Karate-do Gishiki.
The change came from the recommendation of those responsible for helping Higaonna Sensei and other masters in Okinawa to achieve their goal of having UNESCO recognize traditional Karate as a cultural treasure.
‘Gishiki’ (pronounced ‘Gish-ki’) means ‘ceremony’, giving a more formal title to our largest of IOGKF International events.

The Gishiki will still take place on the same dates and will utilize both the Okinawa Budokan and the Karate Kaikan.

Hope to see you at the Gishiki so click on the poster below for registration !
