Welcome to SKIEF. (Shotokan Karate-do International European Federation)

The philosophy of Shotokan Karate-do is based on the traditional budo spirit of karate which seeks for the perfection of character through hard training and discipline. In addition to the traditional philosophy underpinned by the Rei-to-Setsu and Dojo-Kun, SKIF also seeks for the healthy mental and physical growth of youth and peaceful international exchange of friendships through the training and competition.

SKIF (Shotokan Karate International Federation) was founded by SOKE Hirokazu Kanazawa. Read more on
