It is with great pleasure that we are announcing to every single National Karate Federation, National Organization and National Association to invite you all to join in the process of unifying Karate throughout the world. United World Karate (UWK) offers the opportunity for everybody to come together and develop a wide assortment of pure karate skills in an extremely flexible Karate-Do environment. A United World Karate will suit everyone as there will be strict Karate technical monitoring, a transparent structure and professional administrative support. The aim is not only to achieve Olympic Martial Art status, but also to bring education, health and happiness to our society.

Empathy, mutual respect and most importantly – transparency, are essential for the process of unification. The unification started in Slovenia, October 2015, with the first United World Karate World Championships. Now we invite you to Italy at Montecatini for the second United World Karate Championships. We will work together to provide a high level, global event in 3 different disciplines – Traditional, General, Contact, which will cover everybody’s interests. We welcome all karate unions from every country and hope they will cooperate with their national partners to aid their athletes’ participation in Italy.

Together, we are stronger!
