As the JFKO, we have continued our efforts to prepare for the 1st World Fullcontact Karate Championship that will be held in May 2020, and at the same time, have taken steps to prepare for the founding of the WFKO (World Fullcontact Karate Organization), as the international federation of the Full Contact Karate competition, which will hold the above-mentioned event.

In the founding process of the WFKO, Japan and JFKO, as the leaders of this movement, have taken the main role, in coordination with the leaders of the main international federations of practical technique that are in support of establishing the WFKO, in deciding and selecting the main foundation of the organization, such as the board members and regulations.
