We, people who love and practice the universal way of karate, have created an entirely new kind of organisation, the Karate no Michi (Way of Karate) World Federation, as a place for mutual study that will serve to deepen our friendship. This is not a style of karate. We want it to function as a dojo in which everybody can freely participate and practice self-study. In this manner we, with everybody's help, hope to develop a new creative approach in our pursuit of the karate way.
