Since 2014, in April of every year, the anti-doping community worldwide has come together to celebrate Play True Day. This day is dedicated to Clean sports and raising awareness among athletes, the sporting public, and others about preventing doping.
Kyokushin World Union is committed to enforcing sports free from any stimulants included in the World Anti-Doping Agency WADA Prohibited list. Our Regulations aim at systematizing the requirements for anti-doping control and the possible sanctions that may occur during the KWU kumite competitions. Compliance with these Regulations is mandatory at all stages of sports competitions.
To implement anti-doping control within KWU, the Executive Committee establishes the KWU Anti-Doping Commission, which operates following international law and these Regulations.
In its work, the Commission is guided by the anti-doping standards of the WADA Code, carries out the development of guidelines and programs, and implements athlete monitoring.
The collaboration between the Kyokushin World Union and WADA has led to the creation of interactive education courses available on the REGULATIONS FOR ANTI-DOPING POLICIES OF KWU.
