Aims of the organisation:
The mission of IKF GLOBAL (Inclusive karate federation) vzw is to stimulate the integration of physically and mentally disabled children, youngsters and adults via sport, ie. I-karate or inclusive karate, as part of their personal development by raising self-awareness, physical strengths and social contacts.

More in detail:

To promote karate for people with a disability, expand and develop the principle of I-karate (ie. inclusive karate) across Europe and worldwide

To organize trainings, fellowships, competitions, sport days, holiday camps, tests, incl. formation of I-trainers

To unite karate clubs, remaining their own traditions, but willing to integrate I-karate

To organize activities, events, excursions, exchanges of sportive, cultural, social and other aspects, to help realize above goals and further integrate our I-karatekas.


To promote mutual respect and integration, enhanced by the principle of buddies, ie. young valid karatekas assisting I-karakekas during trainings competitions, etc. with the idea to create friendship during the karate-sessions but also in daily life.
