About Us

Welcome to PKC National Headquarters

The Professional Karate Commission (PKC) was formed in in 1986 by Mr. Glenn Keeney as a sanctioning body for American Kickboxing and Point Karate. Mr. Keeney is the President of the PKC and in that capacity, coordinates the PKC’s efforts worldwide.  Recognized as one of the Nation’s top Martial Arts organizations in the U.S, we are dedicated to preserving the integrity, ethics and principles of Karate-do. Our goal is to serve you in the best and most efficient possible manner. Look for the PKC logo for a truly respectful & inspiring atmosphere, with good sportsmanship, and exciting competition.

The PKC sanctions tournaments across the U.S. and Canada. When you see the PKC logo on a tournament flyer, it is the equivalent to the “Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval”. These tournaments are scrutinized for fair play and to see that the awards justify the entry fee. Competitors can be assured of getting their money’s worth at PKC sanctioned events. PKC Members are rated and an annual banquet is then held in conjunction with the PKC National Tournament & Convention to honor the Champions.

Point Tournament officials Certification –  The PKC has initiated an official certification program for point tournaments. The head of this program is Mr. Tom Ward… Mr. Ward has prepared extensive tests in this area to be taken by Black Belts who care to upgrade their officiating abilities. In some states all center referees must be certified to officiate at PKC sanctioned events.

  1. I as well as a number of my class mates have the wrong state by our names, at this moment they say Ky but they should be saying Oh

    • If this is in reference to the tickers (scrolling names) on the home page, they will be corrected once the final ratings are posted, thank you for letting me know.
