BACKGROUND OF WSKF

WSKF (World Shotokan Karate-do Federation) was formed internationally in 1990 by Sensei Hitoshi Kasuya. Forming his own organisation allowed Kasuya Sensei to propagate his unique brand of Shotokan Karate to vast numbers of karate students around the world, including Chicago, IL , and it is this amazing style of karate that we follow assiduously in our club.
Internationally WSKF has over 90 member countries and is recognised as one of the largest mainstream Shotokan organisations in the world. We follow a very traditional yet contemporary approach to our karate that balances out the budo aspects of the art along with participation in modern day sport karate. Our instructors are all very experienced and can attest to the benefits achieved by constant and diligent training in this wonderful martial art.
