Traditional karate is an art of self-defence which evolved from the original Japanese Budo (martial art). Original Japanese karate known today as traditional karate never distinguished  any styles.

As a result of the worldwide interest towards karate caused by the commercial reasons, there have occured numerous styles and schools which have nothing in common with karate. Many spall-schools separated from the original traditional karate mainstream.   

The World Traditional Karate-Do Federation (WTKF) is responsible for governing the original karate in the world and in Poland it is the Traditional Karate Federation of Poland. We are proud we have been following this only true way for 46 years.
