WELCOME

Welcome to the homepage of 国際空手道松濤館
(International Karate Shotokan). We are based in Oita City, Japan.

For those wishing to affiliate their respective clubs with us here in Japan, we have a strict process. Only authentic traditional karateka and groups will be accepted. Furthermore, we will limit our membership to maintain high standards.

Affiliation requires either transfer of current Dan Grades (Japan Certification Only) or via Dan-Shinsa (Examination). Our focus is on Karate Training, therefore, we require everyone to 'talk with their karate'.

For those wishing to talk with their karate, and will be attending, Dan Examination will be conducted in Krefeld, Germany, in October of this year.

Our group does not restrict members from dual-affiliations with other organizations; nor attending any other seminars or tournaments. Our focus in on Tradtional Budo karate, therefore, we encourage our members to engage in all karate activities which they believe are valuable for their martial arts growth. IKS has a very unique and contempory approach to karate, which is founded on the values of the late Asai Tetsuhiko Sensei: "karate not for the game but for as effective self-defense in the real world".

Our syllabus is very standard, however, we greatly focus on effective kata application. In addition to the 26 standard Shotokan-Ryu kata, we also have the five Junro-gata and 24 koten-gata. Our execution and use of these kata, in a martial arts context, is unequivocal; thereby, making our group essential in the karate world: in order to preserve the legacy of Asai Sensei and our other seniors.



IKS has support of many of the top Shotokan masters in Japan; furthermore, we have a long-term plan in place. This is absolutely critical, as our seniors are aging. We must take true karate forward for future generations. This is a key objective of our group.

Membership to International Karate Shotokan is not only membership to an organization in Japan, it will make your karate stronger.


Applications for membership can be made via email: andrebertelono@gmail.com
