together for the Tokyo Olympics 2020

WTOKF informs all the interested parties, organizations and member federations, that they have finished the training of the athletes and have concluded the competitive year. At this moment we are waiting for the confirmation of the IOC department for approving the participation of the IOC observers at the pre-selection seminars, in order to determine the number of participating athletes, on categories.

As we have been so far constantly supported by HPIL HOLDING - the Unique Official Sponsor of the WTOKF and the owner of the WTOKF Brand License, we still count on their support, and confirmed by Mr. Nitin Amersey, the President/CEO of HPIL HOLDING and the WTOKF's Honorary President.

At the same time, we are confident of the support from HPIL HOLDING in organizing of the pre-selection seminars, so that we can obtain in good conditions the decision regarding the participating of the  WTOKF athletes at Tokyo.
In this idea, the WTOKF, will continue training according to the accepted categories, by IOC supervisors, and for this, WTOKF's first activity in 2020, will be International Karate Gasshuku, held on 21-22 March in Lucerne - Switzerland.
The activity is already published on: wtokf.org

“Together we have the same goal: Participation in the Olympic Games!”
