The OYAMA International Karate Federation (OYAMA IKF) is an international non-profit organization gathering karate sport clubs. The main purpose of the Federation is to spread the idea of Oyama karate and sport, working for integration and international cooperation and also developments of contacts between societies and working against social pathologies.

   After Soshu Shigeru Oyama closed Central Dojo in New York, karate clubs from Poland, Russia, Belarus, Lithuania, Estonia and Ukraine resigned from World Oyama Karate Organization. The situation that occurred and experience gained persuaded the countries to act on their own on the international level. At the end of 2004 they initiated the – OYAMA International Karate Federation. This organization with Hanshi Jan Dyduch as a leader, gained full trust and support from Grand Master Shigeru Oyama 10th dan. Legendary creator of OYAMA Karate has accepted its purpose and conveyed to the director all rights to use the trade marks and full right to use his name, last name, degree and image.
