This time, the Okinawa Karate UNESCO Registration Promotion Council aims to correctly preserve and pass on karate, which is the traditional culture that Okinawa is proud of in the world, to the next generation, and to widely disseminate "Okinawa, the birthplace of karate" both domestically and internationally. , A symposium will be held to foster the spirit of the citizens of Okinawa and those involved in karate toward the registration of Okinawa Karate as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage.

At the symposium, the theme is the definition of Okinawa Karate, the characteristics and charms of traditional culture, the ideal way of preservation and inheritance, and the direction of future development, which were examined and summarized by the Okinawa Karate UNESCO Registration Promotion Council in 2020.

In addition, we will hold a panel discussion by experts.
