Coach Registrar

There are 3 levels of coach available within the World Karate Federation (WKF) framework.

Accredited Coach is the first level which allows the coach to represent New Zealand at a K1 level event. The second level is split into Certified Kata Coach and Certified Kumite Coach and allows the coach to represent New Zealand at a World level event. The Accredited and Certified levels are valid for three (3) years.

The final level is a Certified Karate coach which allows the coach to represent New Zealand at a World level event, but is valid for life. This level is limited to a small number of coaches around the world that have consistently been at the forefront of WKF Sport Karate.
