Welcome to the web page of the International Society of Okinawan Karate-Do

The ISOK was formed by a small group of high-ranking karate-ka with impeccable training backgrounds, each of whom was concerned at the growth of Karate schools that did not have the proper credentials or training history, thus devaluing both the image and the effectiveness of the martial art of Karate.

The ISOK Mission

The ISOK is dedicated to cultivating and respecting the individual excellence of each of its members and supporting them through our dedicated support team and highly respected Karateka in our Senior Technical Council

Joining the ISOK

Prior to being accepted all applicants will have to be vetted and qualifications checked. As this is a time consuming process we expect all applicants to pay upfront and we will contact you to confirm payment and will then follow up to validate and verify qualifications and lineage.

Our process utilizes a very highly respected STC to verify style lineage and Sensei. All applications are non refundable and we only accept those with impeccable qualifications.
