 Halifax ISKF  is a Shotokan karate club dedicated to the promotion of non contact karate-do, the "Way of the Empty Hand" as founded by Master Gichin Funakoshi and carried on by Shihan Teruyuki Okazaki, 10th degree black belt of the International Shotokan Karate Federation. The original club, Dalhousie Karate Club, was established in 1979 by Sensei Tony Tam, 8th degree black belt. Today, the Halifax ISKF is associated with ISKF dojos nationally and internationally.  Sensei Tony Tam and Sensei Danny Tam, 8th degree black belt, are the highest ranking certified ISKF instructors in Eastern Canada,  with over 43 years teaching experience each.

We provide a full range of classes for children, students, and adults at beginning, intermediate and advanced levels.

We hope this web site will provide an ongoing source of information to both our members and those who wish to try karate for the first time.
