Mission: To preserve and spread traditional Japanese karate through exceptional instruction.

Master Teruyuki Okazaki

In Deepest Sorrow

It is with tremendous sadness that we inform you of the passing of Master Teruyuki Okazaki.

Sadly, he passed on Tuesday, April 21st after contracting the Coronavirus. Master Okazaki was 88 years of age and dedicated his life to spreading Shotokan karate-do, as well as his instructor, Master Gichin Funakoshi’s philosophy through the Dojo Kun and Shoto Niju Kun throughout the world. His goal was to do whatever he could to promote peace, understanding and acceptance of all cultures.

We will forever be in his debt for always being a giving person both in knowledge, spirit and genuine kindness.

Master Okazaki always made a point of instilling in his instructors and students to remain humble and keep a beginner mind – Shoshin ni kaeru.

At some point in the future we will have a memorial for him, however, Philadelphia, PA USA is under a state mandated lockdown.

Also, please do not send anything to ISKF Headquarters at this time because we are not permitted to open the office until the lockdown is lifted.

A message from ISKF Chairman & Chief Instructor Hiroyoshi Okazaki Shihan

Welcome to the International Shotokan Karate Federation (ISKF)

The ISKF is a traditional Shotokan Karate organization, founded by Master Teruyuki Okazaki, who studied directly under Master Gichin Funakoshi, the founder of Shotokan Karate. The ISKF is a non-profit organization that strives to uphold the integrity and goals of Master Funakoshi, which includes following the guidelines and principles set forth by the Dojo Kun and Niju Kun. The ISKF is rich in tradition, but continuously moves forward to bring all countries together to follow these same guidelines. It is our sincere hope that this website be used as a guide to help in this endeavor.
