About the IKF

Sensei George Kotaka of IKF Hawaii

FKU is an active member of the International Karate Federation. We teach the traditional values of the IKF as the foundation of our training:


IKF is known for high-level instruction and world-class athletes, but most notably for its disciplined students. We achieve this by establishing a hard work ethic and building a solid foundation.

We begin by learning the fundamentals and basic karate techniques, then build on those skills. Our students are well versed in all 3 three major areas of competition: Kata, Kumite, and Kobudo.​

IKF Principles

  1. Henceforth, I shall faithfully train to strengthen my mind and body.
  2. I am willing to endure rigorous training to achieve my goal.
  3. As my strength increases, I shall seek to cultivate a gentle heart.
  4. I shall not use my skill outside the dojo except in the most extreme circumstance.
  5. At all times I will try to avoid inflicting injury upon another person.
  6. I will not brag about my skill nor use it maliciously.
  7. I shall train with the spirit of humility.
