Gilberto Gaertner, presidente da International Traditional Karate

O presidente da International Traditional Karate Federation (ITKF), Gilberto Gaertner, explica que, além de retomar linhas principais, a reunião visa estabelecer a meta de atingir pelo menos 100 universidade ao redor do mundo que estejam integradas em pesquisa sobre o karatê. Além disso, a reunião pauta a criação de um programa de formação para instrutores de karatê padronizado a nível mundial. Gaertner afirma que, para isso, os requisitos serão um nível elevado de escolaridade e passar por vários passos para se formar instrutor de karatê dentro da ITKF.


Ibrahim Al-Bakr, presidente da African Traditional Karate Federation (ATKF)

No próximo encontro, na terça-feira (3), serão pautados os programas socioeducativos relacionados à modalidade que serão implementados com um padrão básico para se trabalhar as adaptações culturas. “Como já temos grandes programas do tipo no Brasil e no Paraná, particularmente, já tivemos projetos com mais de 30 mil crianças, nós temos bom know how. Porém, há adaptações culturais a se fazer, afinal, trabalhar projetos socioeducativos no Brasil é diferente de se trabalhar nos demais países do mundo. A cultura é totalmente diferente”, afirma o dirigente. Gaertner revela que seu grande objetivo, a médio prazo, é poder implementar globalmente, em parceria com a Unesco, um programa educativo pautado em programas socieducacionais tendo o eixo fundamentado no karatê.


Rui Marçal, tesoureiro da ITKF

Traçando um paralelo com reunião similar da qual participou na França, Ibrahim Al-Bakr, presidente da African Traditional Karate Federation (ATKF), afirma que o encontro de Curitiba reuniu mais ideias e estratégias. “Temos algumas estratégias de como implementar esse programa em diferentes níveis para alcançar diversos graus de ensino. Agora, temos um programa específico para líderes e concordamos em como podemos aplicar esse programa em diferentes países”, relata Al-Bakr.


Sandrine El Marhoumy, presidente da Federação Francesa de Karatê Tradicional

O presidente do comitê técnico da ITKF, Richard Jorgensen, explica que trabalha na ideia de montar um programa internacional de treinamento baseado no karatê tradicional há quase dez anos, e que, agora, conseguiram encontrar diversas universidades em todo o mundo interessadas em participar do projeto. Contudo, ele alerta que a estruturação do projeto precisa ser cuidadosamente constituída a partir dos ensinamentos filosóficos do karatê tradicional.


Richard Jorgensen, presidente do comitê técnico da ITKF

De acordo com Jorgensen, o Karatê tradicional tem grande propósito no desenvolvimento humano e que, através dele, muitas características são desenvolvidas independente da cultura ou país em que a pessoa esteja. “Nós temos fortes evidências de pessoas que adquiriram autoestima, confiança e a habilidade de se manter calmo em situações de perigo. Esses atributos são qualidades humanas que são muito positivas, e elas acontecem independentemente da cultura, através do treinamento”, afirma. O dirigente conclui explicando que todos os países têm problemas, sejam eles econômicos ou sociais, e que, através do treinamento no karatê tradicional, são beneficiadas. E esse é o objetivo principal do projeto.


Justo Gomes, embaixador da ITKF

Kazuo Nagamine, membro do comitê da University Traditional Karate, revela que o principal ponto da mesa realizada hoje foi a elaboração de um programa que foca eminentemente nos professores que farão a transmissão para os faixas-pretas sho-dans (1º dan) e ni-dans (2º dan), ou seja, é um programa que irá atender prioritariamente os professores iniciantes que, segundo ele, são justamente aqueles que carecem de maior informação e conteúdo.

Justo Gomes, embaixador da ITKF, lembra que, na Argentina, também estão sendo realizados cursos de preparação para os professores de karatê tradicional, com formação acadêmica. “Nós temos um programa de formação acadêmica para professores do tradicional e este é o segundo ano que estamos pondo isso em prática. Mesmo assim fiquei surpreso com a proposta da Universidade de Karatê, e vejo como algo extremamente positivo porque as futuras gerações necessitarão que os futuros professores de karatê possuam uma formação acadêmica específica e ao mesmo tempo muito mais abrangente”, avalia o embaixador da ITKF.


Além da grande exposição de ideias, o encontro definiu as ações que serão adotadas no curto prazo

The next meeting, on Tuesday (3), will be guided the socio-educational programs related to the modality that will be implemented with a basic standard to work on cultural adaptations. “We already have large programs of this type in Brazil and Paraná, particularly, we have had projects with over 30,000 children, so we have a good know how. However, there are cultural adaptations to be made, after all, working social and educational projects in Brazil is different from working in other countries of the world. The culture is totally different”, says the chairman. Gaertner reveals that his big dream, in the medium term, is to implement globally, in partnership with Unesco, an educational program based on socio-educational programs based on karate.


Rui Marçal, treasurer of ITKF

Drawing a comparison with a similar meeting attended in France, Ibrahim Al-Bakr, President of the African Traditional Karate Federation (ATKF), claims that the Curitiba meeting brought together many more ideas and strategies. “We have some strategies on how to implement this program at different levels to achieve varying degrees of education. Now we have a specific program for leaders and we agreed on how we can apply this program in different countries”, reports Al-Bakr.

ITKF technical committee chairman, Richard Jorgensen, explains that he has been working on the idea of setting up an international traditional karate-based training program for almost ten years, and that now they have found several universities around the world interested in participating in the project. However, he warns that project structuring needs to be carefully constructed from the traditional karate philosophy.


Richard Jorgensen, chairman of ITKF Technical Committee

According to Jorgensen, traditional karate has a great purpose in human development and many characteristics are developed regardless of the culture or country. “We have strong evidence of people who have gained self-esteem, confidence and the ability to stay calm in dangerous situations. These attributes are positive human qualities and they happen regardless of culture through training”, he says. Jorgensen concludes by explaining that all countries have problems, whether economic or social, and that through training in traditional karate, the practitioners are benefited.


Justo Gomes, ITKF ambassador

Kazuo Nagamine, a member of the University Traditional Karate committee, reveals that the main point at the table today was the elaboration of a program that focuses eminently on the teachers who will broadcast to the sho-dans (1º dan) and ni- dans (2º dan), in other words, it is a program that will primarily serve beginning teachers who according to him, are precisely those who lack more information and content.


Kazuo Nagamine, University Traditional Karate committee member

Justo Gomes, ITKF ambassador, says that, in Argentina, preparatory courses are being held for traditionally educated karate teachers. “We have an academic training program for traditional teachers and this is the second year that we are putting this into practice. Still, I was surprised by the Karate University proposal, and I see it as extremely positive because future generations will need future karate teachers to have a specific and at the same time much broader academic background”, consider the ITKF ambassador.


Besides the great exposition of ideas, the meeting defined the actions that will be taken in the short term

Sportive Management

December 1st of 2019

By PAULO PINTO I Pictures by BUDOPRESS

Curitiba - PR


The new letters of the brand were sized to match with each other and are authentic, that is, they were designed exclusively for the institution


ITKF's new brand expresses the innovation, strength and movement that guides the sport today

Among the numerous innovations promoted by the executive board of the International Traditional Karate Federation (ITKF), the visual identity stands out, which, besides being present in the logo, covers all the graphic material used in the communication of the world entity with its affiliates.


To promote the change, the sport managers contacted Marcelo Azevedo, a karate black belt and one of the most renowned graphic artists in Paraná who, according to Gilberto Gaertner, president of ITKF, was inspired by the principles of budo.


Various moments of the ITKF brand

“We asked the renowned designer Marcelo Azevedo to update the ITKF logo, because in the previous change of the logo the vertical lines became horizontal, with clear influence of the IBM brand, which at that time was a symbol of a successful company. We asked him to maintain the initial idea of ITKF from original elements and connected with the essence of traditional karate. I think the biggest insight was to develop the K from the image of master Nishiyama in kokutsu-dachi”, explained the presidente.

Graphic designer with extensive experience, Azevedo explained that the processo f updating a brand should not be based solely on fad or change of color or style. There must be well-defined criteria and purposes that relate to technical, functional, symbolism, cultural and aesthetic factors, among others.


“A brand has its history, which must be respected as well as its origins and its essence. Modernizing your appearance can create a sense of growth, innovation, confidence and dynamism. The communication has changed a lot in the last years, making the brands follow the movement. Today, large companies are working on simplifying their brands. The visualization on mobile phones demands that the reading of the mark it’s fast and pregnant, that is, it makes a strong impression. The more elements, effects, gradients, and details, the harder it is to pin down the essence of the brand. A good brand should have an excellent readability, even in very small sizes or applied in a single color”, detailed the graphic artist.


Evolution of ITKF’s logo

Born in December 27 of 1968 and graduated in industrial design and product design from the Universidade Federal do Paraná (UFPR), Marcelo Gonçalves Azevedo stressed the importance of maintaining a unique standard in the presentation of visual identity.


“Regarding the above mentioned purposes, we realize that, for ITKF, the unification of visual identity will be very important. We realized that each country has been using a different form of the brand, thus fragmenting its cohesion in communication. In this sense, we have developed a simple pattern to situate the brand internationally. With a bar in the colors of the country flags and their names below, we unify your presentation. The new brand also gained, in addition to traditional horizontal writing, the square and vertical arrangements, allowing to choose the filling of the letters or work only their outline. This increases the flexibility of applications according to the varied communication needs without impairing their reading in the various media”, he said.


Application of the ITKF logo

For the graphic artist, in the redesign of the ITKF brand the letters were sized to get a good relationship with each other and are authentic, that is, they were designed exclusively for the institution. The strength given to the letter K is reminiscent of karateka in the kokutsu-dachi position, with its black belt, which symbolizes in itself the practitioners' goal of improvement.


“Simply applying the letter K to a social network profile already identifies the brand as a whole. In this single element, seen in isolation, are all the attributes of value and the philosophy of ITKF as an institution guided by the principles of budo, whose aim is to popularize and develop traditional karate in the friendly relationship between the members of all countries in the advance. world sport and in contributing to human development ”, concluded the designer from Curitiba.


ITKF tea-cups

The ITKF president stressed the importance of all national federations adopting the brand that synthesizes the new moment of traditional karate.


“It is important to remember that we have not developed a new logo, but an update that is in line with our current moment. Just as the logo has been updated, ITKF as an institution needs to adapt to the new reality imposed by the technological and behavioral changes we are experiencing. Would be ideal if all national federations use the possible variations of the logo to standardize the traditional karate brand globally and embrace the entity's new momentum, ”said Gilberto Gaertner.


Marcelo Azevedo sought to maintain some aspects of the original brand in some applications of the new brand, maintaining, for example, the contour lines that form the letters in unfilled applications

The main objective of the new logo is to strengthen, through the graphic image, the work of ITKF aiming to popularize and develop the traditional karate
