The Professional Karate Commission was formed in 1986 by Mr. Glenn Keeney as a sanctioning body for American Kickboxing and in 1989 further developed the organization to include Sport tournament karate. Mr. Keeney was the International Liason for the PKC and in that capacity, coordinated the PKC's efforts worldwide.
The Professional Karate Commission is a tournament and ratings organization designed to meet the needs of the competitor. The PKC was created by some our most respected promoters and competitors to bring a new level of professionalism to the sport karate circuit. The PKC Directors are some of today’s finest leaders carrying out the task of building a world wide organization. With their help, the PKC intends to assure that Karate will indeed have a bright and successful future.
