The International Shotokan Karate Federation is one of the largest and most prestigious martial arts organizations in the world. Exacting standards of technique and rank are the same in our club as they are in Japan. ISKF schools will not compromise their ranking standards just to keep students happy. Instructors are nationally and internationally certified and regularly participate in instructor training courses and seminars to better their teaching skills throughout their lives. Regular training camps provide ISKF students exposure to a great number of world-class karate instructors. Your ISKF rank is recognized throughout the world. Independent schools and smaller organizations do not have this depth of opportunity to offer.
