About ESKF

ESKF (England Shotokan Karate-Do Federation) is a family orientated Karate Club in South East London specialising in Shotokan and Shito-Ryu Karate. Tuition is provided by our fully insured and qualified Instructors. Japanese commands and instructions are progressively taught during the lessons thereby allowing Karate to develop not only a physical discipline, but a mental discipline too. We are affiliated to the WUKF, the World Union of Karate-Do Federations, now the largest World Governing Body for karate.

We are very active on the competition circuits, where our students attend both national and international events. ESKF is currently Number 1 in the United Kingdom and Number 2 in Europe based on past international competition results. All our instructors are either past or current World or European Champions.

We create a friendly atmosphere in our classes for both children and adults. Our minimum entry age is four years old and there is no maximum age.
