The World Alliance of Shorinjiryu Karatedo (WASK) was formed by a group of senior ranked and titled Shorinjiryu Kenkokan Karateka that are heads of national organizations around the world.
The individuals agreed that the present and future direction of Shorinjiryu Karatedo should be on a path true to the fundamental underpinnings of Karatedo. One that develops not only a utilitarian approach to Budo but a way based on personal growth in Virtue, Mindfulness and Wisdom.
Many senior yudansha are passionate about the system of Shorinjiryu. Focusing on the strong bonds they shared together, they established an organization operating parallel yet independent to So-Honbu dojo Japan and continued to practice Shorinjiryu under a structured and well-managed organization with a set of agreed upon protocols and ethical standards.
The organization participate in international Anzen Bogu tournaments to promote healthy and safe contact competition to test individual skill in Karatedo and yearly training camps and seminars (Gasshuku) to promote the sharing and development of knowledge and friendship in cooperative spirit.
