Earlier this year, Sunshine Coast Martial Arts (SCMA) received official affiliation with World Shotokan Karate-Do Federation (WSKF). We are now proud to announce that the Australian Karate Federation (AKF) have also granted our dojo, official membership under this change.
For our karateka, this means you will receive an official WSKF ‘Passport’. Your ‘passport’ is an international membership book used in every WSKF dojo around the world. It will contain details of your gradings, international tournament results and WSKF recognised seminars that you have attended. Your achievements in Shotokan Karate will be accepted and recognised worldwide. Once passports are received, they will be held in safekeeping at the dojo and kept up to date.
The club already has the WSKF badge which should be positioned on the left side of your gi top. It is mandatory for Karateka who will compete in upcoming tournaments, attend gradings or attend offical WSKF events, to have this badge applied to their gi. WSKF badges are available from the dojo reception.
We are thrilled with this recognition internationally and nationally and look forward to seeing you represent Shotokan Karate in the dojo and at tournaments. Oss!
