What is Guardian Girls?


Created by the Koyamada International Foundation (KIF) and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) in 2019, Guardian Girls™ is a global initiative to empower vulnerable girls and young women to defend themselves against all forms of gender-based violence (GBV) through martial arts and self-defense training throughout the world. Following the agreement signed with Koyamada International Foundation, World Karate Federation is developing, with KIF and UNFPA, a worldwide social program that aims to promote gender equality and the empowerment of women by training them to defend themselves from all forms of Gender-Based Violence through Karate training.
