F.S.K. History

The Federation of Shotokan karate was formed in 1986 by Sensei Aidan Trimble 7th Dan. Sensei Trimble's aim was to build an association that stands for excellence without exclusion, that produce's students and instructors who are knowledgeable in both kumite and kata and where instructors feel free to question and express their own ideas.

We feel that Sensei Trimble's vision has been realised. The F.S.K. now has an excellent reputation both nationally and internationally.
