The Independent Traditional Karate Organization was founded to provide the opportunity for karate practitioners to network and train in a non-political environment while maintaining individual schools autonomy, promoting the ideals of the dojo kun, and furthering the growth of Shotokan Karate.
There are no yearly dojo fees, member fees, renewals, or mandatory paid seminars to be a member of the ITKO.
It is the intent of the organization to allow a universal common growth for Shotokan karate practitioners to exchange knowledge and provide information and training opportunities.
The ITKO is pleased to welcomes it's newest affiliate, sensei Pablo E. Ramírez Orta, 6th dan of National Shotokan Karate-Do Federation, Puerto Rico. Profile click here
