About our Organisation
Our Organisation is recognized by International Karate Organization - Kyokushinkaikan, Japan. Let's begin from a little bit of history.
Uttarakhand Full Contact Karate Association (UFKA) was formed in the year 2012-13 under the leadership of Mahendra Singh Bhakuni, 3rd dan black belt (Jaoan), Senior Kyokushin Karate Instructor & Indian Branch Chief - I.K.O Matshushima / International Karate Organization Kyokushinkaikan (Japan), & International Judge from Haldwani (Uttarakhand).

UFKA has been associated with distinguished citizens, parents, community for many years. Due to the widespread support, today UFKA is a well known karate organization, successfully developing under the leadership of unanimously selected Secretary, Mahendra Singh Bhakuni. The aim of the association is to make full contact karate accessible for all age groups.
Sosai Masutatsu Oyama, The Founder of Kyokushin Karate.Sosai (Great Master) Masutatsu Oyama is the founder of world’s most widespread style of karate - Kyokushin. "Kyokushin" is Japanese for "the ultimate truth". It is rooted in a philosophy of self-improvement, discipline and hard training. Masutatsu Oyama was born in Korea in 1923. From the age of 9, Mas Oyama learned Chinese Kempo in Manchuria and followed into his teens by practicing Judo and boxing. Finally this led him to the practice of Okinawan karate, which ultimately served as the springboard for the creation of his own style, Kyokushin. By the time Mas Oyama was 20, he had received his 4th dan in Okinawan karate and eventually attained a 4th dan in Judo as well. Among Masutatsu Oyama’s many accomplishments, he is perhaps best known for introducing tameshiwari or “stone breaking” into the practice of modern karate. Mas Oyama died of lung cancer in April of 1994, leaving to the world a legacy of the world’s strongest karate.
