Takahashi Shihan (9th Dan, OAM)
TSKF Chief Instructor

The Traditional Shotokan Karate-Do Federation (TSKF) is a not-for-profit Shotokan-based karate organization with an open-door policy offering fuss-free PAYG traditional karate classes to children and adults. We are affiliate members of the International Shotokan Karate Federation (ISKF) following the traditions of the founder Gichin Funakoshi and the late Master Nakayama. TSKF adheres to the #1 Principle, "karate begins and ends with respect." We promote strong moral principles, etiquette and the encouragement of goodwill and harmony among all karateka.

For more than 40 years, our chief instructor Takahashi Shihan has visited Australia twice per year spending many weeks conducting seminars and gradings in our dojos all over the country. Shihan has also presided over our State and National competitions. He has brought to us an unbroken line of instruction and we are very fortunate to have had a man of his calibre teaching us.

Refer to the national web site for more information. TSKF South Australia is also on Facebook.

2016 "Kumi-day"

TSKF Southern Adelaide hosted a day of kumite training with world-class competitors on Saturday 26th November, covering the art and craft of competition kumite and street self defence tactics over five hours in three sessions. The instructors were Adam Pearce, Tracy Pearce, Matt Stevens and Jason Phillips. Students learned about:

  • physical exercises for speed and power development for kumite;
  • ways to master distance and timing;
  • how to recognise and fight to one's strengths;
  • kumite mindset;
  • ring-craft and tactics of kumite;
  • and how to appropriately defend oneself in a street situation.

3rd ISKF World Shoto Cup 2016

According to a tally compiled by Deb Russo, Australia won gold medals in 18 divisions, silver medals in 7 divisions, and bronze medals in 11 divisions, for a total of 36 wins with a little help from New Zealand. Australia won more gold medals, and more medals overall, than any other country by far.

According to the official tally posted on Facebook by the ISKF, South Africa also performed very well with wins in 25 divisions, and the most silver (10) and bronze (13) wins. After Australia, the USA was the next highest gold medal winner in 7 divisions. Also according to the tally posted by ISKF, New Zealand had 1 gold and 4 bronze wins; but New Zealand may have won more medals than this. The tally that the ISKF posted on Facebook counted only 15 gold, 5 silver and 10 bronze for Australia.

It is an understatement to say that Takahashi Shihan was very pleased. Very senior members of the ISKF have indicated that Australian and New Zealand karateka have set the standard. Much credit to Takahashi Shihan, John Russo Sensei and Ian Watson Sensei for their guidance. Congratulations to our Aussie Team for their demonstrated dedication, excellence and spirit. While others were relaxing, they were training hard and the results are clear for all to see. Ossu!
