Shinkyokushinkai The 7th Singapore Full Contact Karate Championship 2024


Date: 21st April 2024
Place: Caritas Agape Village at Toa Payoh, Singapore
Organizer: WKO Shinkyokushinkai Singapore

The 7th Singapore Full Contact (SFC) event has finally resumed after a challenging five-year hiatus due to the post-COVID period. This marks a significant milestone as it’s our inaugural event under the Singapore Full Contact Karate Organization branding, signalling the first step towards the reunification of the full contact community in Singapore.
Nearly a hundred participants representing various esteemed organizations graced the event, including Ashihara Karate International, FightSpur, Kokusai Josui Kaikan Singapore, Kyokushin-Kan Singapore, Kyokushin Zenwa Kai, Tong Karate Dojo, WKO Igarashi Dojo, and WKO Singapore.

For Kumite, participants competed in Children, Teenagers, and Adult categories, and Kata competitions featured Men’s and Women’s categories, highlighting the diverse talent within our community.

In a ground-breaking move, we partnered with Anti-Doping Singapore (ADS) to raise awareness about clean sports in full contact karate competitions. ADS set up an outreach booth and delivered an informative presentation, enlightening the audience about anti-doping measures in sports. We eagerly anticipate future collaborations with ADS to further promote clean sportsmanship in both local and international tournaments.

Our esteemed guest for the 7th SFC was Master Vincent Ng, President of the Singapore MMA Association, alongside several distinguished VIPs, including Shihans from multiple organizations and pioneering members of Kyokushin in Singapore.

We’re thrilled to announce that the 7th SFC concluded on a high note, with emotions ranging from tears of joy to disappointment. However, what stood out the most was the unwavering display of strong budo spirit by all participants, embodying the essence of martial arts.

Looking ahead, we eagerly anticipate an even stronger and larger participation in the coming year. Osu!
