Trinidad and Tobago Karate Union

Governing Body for Karate

Governing body for all Karate in Trinidad and Tobago

T.T.K.U. has been in existence for the last twelve years. We were born in 1998 after much effort on the part of several dedicated karate practitioners to create a more representative national karate body. This was done and an organization was formed that was recognized by the Ministry of Sport as the national body for karate. Recognition was also given by the TTOC and this was due to our membership in the Pan American Karate Federation, the regional body for the World Karate Federation (WKF). We  are also members of the CCCK (Central American and Caribbean Karate Federation) and founder members of the CKF(Caribbean Karate Federation).

The TTKU promotes sport karate under the direction of  the previously mentioned international organizations and as a result TTKU is involved in sport karate which is recognized by the world’s highest sporting organization which is the IOC (International Olympic Committee).Karate became an Olympic sport when the WKF became a member of the IOC in 1998.In 2009 karate was just pipped by Rugby 7’s and Golf in becoming one of the sports which will make up the Summer Olympic program in London in 2016.Karate came 3rd in the final vote of IOC members in November 2009.For those interested in the highest level of sport karate TTKU is the organization to join. Nuff said!
