The World Karate Federation (WKF) has begun the New Year by launching a new official website.
According to the governing body, the new site has been designed to "improve user experience" and "strengthen its status as the main hub of the sport".
Accessible at wkf.net, the site has a "renovated and intuitive layout", the WKF said, which reflects the organisation's "innovative essence".
Improvements include better photo and video features and the ability to share all of the website's content on social media.
Results, event information and competition details have been streamlined into micro-sites for each tournament, with content sections described as "fresh and modern".
The website comes as karate prepares for its Olympic debut at Tokyo 2020 this year.
It has been optimised to work on all devices.
"We are thrilled to launch our new portal to the world," said WKF President Antonio Espinós.
"The new wkf.net best represents our interest in technical excellence and innovation; we have worked hard to deliver a website that can inspire our millions of fans around the world.
"While our sport continues getting ready to make its Olympic debut in Tokyo 2020, and as part of our growth strategy, we are proud to present this dynamic online resource.
"Wkf.net will act as our gateway to the world, and will further demonstrate that the WKF is a leading, advanced sports organisation."
