The development of Karate and the support that the sport receives in Japan were assessed during the meeting that WKF President Antonio Espinós held with Liberal Democratic Party Diet affairs chief Wataru Takeshita.

The meeting took place in Tokyo during the four-day visit that the head of Karate’s international governing body has done to the birth nation of the sport. LDP Diet affairs chief and former Minister for Reconstruction Wataru Takeshita discussed the future of the sport with Mr. Espinós as the WKF leader pledged to work tirelessly to raise the profile of the discipline in Japan and around the world. Mr. Espinós also stated the goal of the sport organisation to encourage more people of all ages and genders to engage in the ancient discipline which was originated in Japan.

“It was an honour to meet Mr. Takeshita and be given the opportunity to debate about the future of Karate with such key Legislature member. I am very pleased about the prospect of the sport here in Japan, and I am convinced that Karate will continue receiving tremendous support from the highest authorities in the country as the discipline continues its expansion in years to come,” said WKF President Antonio Espinós.
