Following is the declaration of the World Shotokan Karate Federation which as a member we also abide by:
WSKF Establishment Declaration
We, Karate exponents training in the art of World Shotokan, firmly reject all forms of prejudice and discrimination. We hold no position on religion or politics and recognise each individual and each separate organisation as self-determining entities. We seek the growth and development of World Shotokan and through that the development of world peace. It is our firm decision to found our art as a modern and permanent one, firmly rooted in friendship and understanding between all human beings on the planet. We seek the development and growth of a world youth and health movement based on mutual understanding between all federated member organisations. Under these guiding principles, we hereby organise and found The World Shotokan Karate-Do Federation.
