The Scottish Karate Federation was founded on Thursday 17th December 1970, by nine karate students, three of whom are still active members of the SKF, Hamish Adam 8th Dan, Colin Clapperton 8th Dan and Allan Spence 7th Dan. It was originally called 'Wado-Ryu Karate Committee' (Scotland).
Today the SKF is the largest and most successful karate association in Scotland. We are members of the Scottish Karate Governing Body, the only recognised Governing Body for Karate in Scotland.
The SKF celebrated its 40th Anniversary with a reception and dinner held on the 5th March 2011. Check out the photo album on Flickr.
