The BKF is set-up as a democratically elected body for British Karate to cover the whole spectrum of our martial art and to further develop an understanding administration that listens to the needs of all the many aspects of Karate from Sport to Traditional, from the youngest beginner to the most senior instructor.

The BKF is recognised as the official umbrella body for British Karate by the European Karate Federation and the World Karate Federation.

The BKF is committed to building and maintaining a reliable and responsible federation that will benefit all its members.

The BKF welcomes all members of the four home countries that accept its rules and regulations.
