NKKF Membership

We all have important values and ideas, things we care about and want to share. Sometimes we feel our ideas can even change the world. The National Karate & Kobudo Federation is dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the tradition, and history of the Karate and Kobudo of Okinawa and Japan. History has taught us that the need for proper documentation was not realized until modern times. The ancient arts have been passed down from instructor to student for centuries. Along the lines the waters have clouded. It is the goal of the NKKF to do our part to preserve the traditions that have been passed down to us in their unaltered form.

The NKKF is a Brotherhood of Martial Artist from around the globe working together in their common goals of preserving and promoting their arts. The NKKF Shihan Kai consists of Shito Ryu, Goju Ryu, Shorin Ryu, Okinawan Kempo, Goshin Budo, Shotokan, Shorei Ryu, Ryu Kyu Kobudo as well as several of the less popular arts.

The National Karate Kobudo Federation provides instruction and advancement in Karate and Kobudo. With all members receiving discounts on Seminars and equipment.

There are NKKF members in 15 Countries and several US States. The NKKF understands that the exchange rate is not the same for all currency. Contact the Honbu or Country Honbucho (NKKF Shihan in charge)for prices outside of the United States.

NKKF Members will receive invitations to train with Masters from Japan and Okinawa in several different Martial Arts.
