Karate celebrates April 6
On the score of the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace (IDSDP), the World Karate Federation joined forces with Peace and Sport to showcase the positive power of sport for peace and social inclusion.
With that goal in mind, the WKF launched the campaign #ReiForApril6, an addition to the #WhiteCard movement wherein karatekas from all over the world took over social media with videos performing a "Rei" (traditional Karate bow) and raising the white card. A selection of the best videos submitted by fans was published on WKF's social media channels and website at a daily basis. 
Hundreds of Karate fans of all ages, backgrounds and levels participated in the initiative, with a constant engagement on social media throughout the one-week-long activity, making the campaign a huge success. The initiative also had the active participation of Karate's Champion for Peace Fodé Ndao 
Examples of the campaign can be found here:
