The United Shotokan Karate Federation was started in 2002 with aim of developing traditional Shotokan karate in Ireland, with the emphasis on the student and not politics. The Organisation strives to pursue the utmost professionalism and honesty in every aspect of karate, from tuition to competing both Nationally and Internationally.
The Organisation started off with two clubs from Corduff and Lucan. The Corduff Shotokan Karate Club first opened it's doors in 1990 in Corduff, a small parish in the suburbs of Dublin. The club was started by Sensei David Royle who holds a fifth Dan grade with the Karate Union of Great Britain (KUGB).
The Lucan Shotokan Karate Club was established in 2001 by Sensei Michael Sherlock, who holds the rank of sixth Dan and has been a senior instructor for many years. Both clubs are members of the United Shotokan Karate Federation (USKFI) and are affiliated to the Karate Union of Great Britain (KUGB).
Since 2002 the Organisation has grown rapidly with many clubs throughout Dublin, Meath, Cavan, Wicklow and Kildare with new clubs opening and affiliating all the time.
