WKA Code of Conduct
You will be learning a highly effective method of self-defence and must only be used when absolutely necessary.
Then only with the minimum force required to subdue the attacker or stop him or them.
You must never use your skill to bully or enforce your will on others.
Honour, Respect and Integrity are the cornerstones of our art, sport and association.
If you feel a breach of the Code of Conduct has taken place, then your first point of call is your immediate senior. If you do not think that is the correct place for your complaint then bring it to your National Representative or WKA International Head Office.
If the offence is criminal, as in inappropriate touching, threats of violence, abusive actions, sexual or physical abuse, we strongly urge you to contact law enforcement immediately and before notifying WKA Head Office.
For non-criminal breaches that require WKA Head Office involvement will be dealt with in the following manner
1. A disciplinary board will be created with two Vice Presidents and one Senior Vice President or World President.
2. This board will investigate the issue and report back to the senior team, consisting or both Senior vice presidents along with both the World and Executive President.
3. A decision will be reached, and the complainant will be notified of the findings before any required action is taken. If the complaint is serious, the senior team reserves the right to pass on to law enforcement as it sees fit.
