Each Nation is a separate branch of the NKKF and is overseen by the Honbucho or Director of that Nation.
The NKKF is void of any politics and only has one common goal and that is "Excellence" each of the individual Directors share this common goal.
We currently have representatives in the USA and 14 countries, each will be the National branch office of that country.
Thus we are the National Karate & Kobudo Federation. -Bill Woodard NKKF President 1998
