Our Story

PKL was founded on June 4, 1994 in Santa Rosa City, Laguna, within the Republic of the Philippines. In its many years of operation, and indeed even today, PKL continually accomplishes fruitful advancements in an environment free of intimidation, politics, negative distractions and other negative influences. PKL continually seeks to foster a spirit of fellowship and understanding, and it welcomes all like-minded individuals, regardless of race, gender, ethnic background, religion, national origin, or physical handicap.

PKL embraces multiple MAJOR styles. PKL knows that karate is a lifestyle, not just a system of punches and kicks. In essence, we embrace the karateka themselves, not their style, and bring them into an enriched family environment. We strive to bring out the best in every karateka, club, ryuha, etc. while maintaining the core of what makes karatedo, karatedo.

PKL promotes self esteem, self discipline, self confidence, self defense and self realization in a family oriented way, which is the true PKL WAY of LIFE. PKL members embark on a wonderful adventure where they experience peace, kindness, and love while practicing the the PKL Way of LIFE which is both a motto and an acronym – Peace, Kindness, Love and Wonderful Adventures; Yearning to Learn, Invest, Feel and Enjoy.

Our Members are our legacy as well as our teachings – the true Legacy of PKL Teaching. PKL builds bridges, not walls.

Our Vision

Our League’s vision is to establish a Karatedo Academy and League that will enhance people’s skills in the beautiful art of Karatedo, Sport Karate, and Budo. Our League and Academy embraces the use of interesting modes of instruction with outstanding, competent, responsible, and moral, instructors – which results in the largest amount of quality Yudansha (black belt karateka). We strive to help all karateka embrace the humility within their hearts, and require a high standard of morality and virtue.

Our Mission

Our mission is to develop a global community of trained, disciplined, and professional, men and women karateka; who will all have a love of God, Country, Environment and their fellow man. We teach Karatedo in the safest ways possible using both proven and modern methods of instruction. The League’s standard is to teach Karatedo in line with International Qualification Standards, insuring symmetry and quality.


PKL is exactly who they make themselves out to be, both public and private. The amount of support PKL gives is astonishing – and they truly care for their own. In PKL everyone helps everyone – it fosters true comradery and morality. PKL is my family.
