We have been teaching traditional Karate for over decades. Our style Isshinryu Karate founded by Master Tatsuo Shimabuku (1908 - 1975), originated in Okinawa (birth place of Karate) has its roots in Shuri-te and Naha-te styles. In 2019 World Isshinryu Karate Federation *WIKF) is formed under the watchful eyes of Hanshi Phillip R. Furgasson (9th Dan) to develop and spread Isshinryu Style in traditional way. Hanshi Phillip R. Furgason started his training in Isshinryu Karate at Okinawa in March 1975 under the guidence of O'Sensei Kichiro Shimabuku.
Maybe there are people who may ask , why one more association? when there are so many. Our answer is, WIKF is formed to teach and spread only true Isshinryu Karate. There are people in various part of the globe who are selling the art without any basic knowledge or ability in martial art. We are looking for those people who are breathing for the art. WIKF supports only those people who train and teach pure Isshinryu or those who wish to join our association to learn Isshinryu as it is.
Provide quality traditional martial arts training. All of our programs incorporate universally accepted life skill principles into our martial arts organization.
Provide high quality instruction in traditional Isshinryu Karate as well as promote and encourage, by example, the development of life skills and positive personal development.
World Isshinryu Karate Federation’s aim is to promote the sound physical and mental development of its members through the study of Isshinryu Karate.
