All athletes have the right to compete in sport knowing that they, and their competitors, are clean.

We, the Scottish Karate Governing Body, believe in clean ‘karate’ and work in partnership with UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) and our Federations to ensure that the integrity of karate is protected.

The use of performance-enhancing drugs and other doping behaviour severely damages the legitimacy of sport and undermines the integrity of clean athletes.
