Hi Simao.

The original group is Sensei Kando Shibamori 9. Dan karate federation see his web site www.iwku.org.
This group is from Greece and I think part of WIKF Greece. So there are two International Wado karate Union Federations

This group is led by Kando Shibamori 9th Dan. He's the Wado technical advisor to WUKF and they awarded him 9th Dan at their Euro Champs last year. The IWKU/Shibamori is based in Hungary. . Don't know who exactly are involved with IWKU but Shibamori was originaly WadoKai i believe. I'll be training with him at the end of the month at their competition.

Sorry, if my English is not good or google translater make any mistake.)))
I think there are two IWKU. One is organization of Shibamori sensei, who lives in Austia. As I know, his spotrs activity is connected with WUKF, not with WKF.
And another IWKU is new product of WKF.
WKF is actually creates their own style organizations. And give them accreditation as the exclusive representative of the style of Wado ( Shoto, Shito...) in WKF. Something like that. AS I understand, WKF in principle does not admit the Japanese style karate organization to its sports activities.
Draw your own conclusions, gentlemen.
