The Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) states that sport offers great potential for development across all aspects of society. A strong karate program across the Commonwealth can help deliver humanity, equality and destiny through a virtual education strategy. The Commonwealth Karate Federation (CKF) employs this strategy to provide world class coaching and mentoring to remote and/or underprivileged communities via the following initiatives:

  • Support each Commonwealth country’s ability to coach and develop karate within their communities.

  • Implement Grass-Roots Programs such as “Beach Karate” for the Caribbean and “Blue Sky Karate” for Africa to make karate both accessible and affordable within the local communities.

  • Develop coaches through virtual learning sessions that provide external support in the communities with simple, low-cost, self-sustaining structures to enable their on-going development of local karate.

  • Support the development of para-karate programs across the Commonwealth countries.
