CURKA Policy & The Canadian Anti-doping Program

As a member of the Canadian Uechi-ryu Karate Association, either as an Athlete, Coach, Trainer, or any member in any other capacity; the rules set forth in the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP) apply to you. 

The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) is the custodian of the Canadian Anti-Doping Program (CADP), the set of rules that govern anti-doping in Canada.

The CADP is compliant with the World Anti-Doping Code (Code) and all International Standards that deal with technical areas and the associated Technical Documents. The current version of the CADP came into force on January 1, 2021.
