In 2009, several Karate clubs gathered to establish the Karate-do Union of Singapore (KUS), an organization with a singular vision: to nurture and popularize the art of Karate in Singapore. Over the years, KUS has grown in both size and reputation. In addition to organizing numerous local competitions, seminars, and high-performance training programs to elevate the skills of Karate athletes, KUS has also successfully welcomed several Karate clubs in Singapore as affiliates. As a result, our numbers have expanded to 16 ordinary and 3 associate affiliates, a testament to KUS's standing as a leading Karate organization in Singapore.

These initiatives stand as a testament to KUS's unwavering commitment to excellence and their tireless pursuit of cultivating the next generation of Karatekas. KUS's unrelenting pursuit of excellence bore fruit on 15th November 2020, when the organization was officially accepted as a member of the World Karate Federation (WKF), soon followed Asian Karate Federation (AKF), and South East Asia Karate Federation (SEAKF).



The logo

 The background of the logo, the Singapore flag, reflects the Karate-Do Union of Singapore’s (KUS) commitment in representing Singapore in the Karate front. The mission of KUS is to promote the practice of karate in Singapore while staying true to the country's values and dignity. The lion is a symbol of strength, courage, and loyalty, which embodies the characteristics of the Union as a whole. The logo is prominently red as a call for action for KUS and its affiliates to come forth bold and dynamic. 

Tying it all together, the karate black belt is a symbol of mastery and respect to the artform. The black belt encircled signifies a unity of the different clubs united through KUS, and a nod to future generations of leaders to continue the good fight
