The result of true karate is natural, effortless action, and the confidence, humility, openness and peace only possible through perfect unity of mind and body. This is the core teaching of Zen, the basis of Bushido, and our philosophy.
Testing or evaluation is important to martial artists of many disciplines who wish to determine their progression or own level of skill in some specific contexts.
Various forms and sparring are commonly used in martial art exhibitions and tournaments. Some competitions pit practitioners of different disciplines against each other.
Full-contact sparring or competition, where strikes are not pulled but thrown with full force as the name implies, has a number of differences from light contact sparring.
Martial arts have crossed over into sports when forms of sparring become competitive, becoming a sport in its own right that is dissociated from the original combative origin.
Martial arts training aims to result in several benefits to trainees, such as their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. Spiritually-oriented and health-oriented.

People About Us
Ever since Daniel has joined SKIF we have seen a massive boost in his interest for karate. The staff of SKIF have provided a fun, disciplined environment that has had a huge impact in Daniels life. Not only has the Dojo taught him Self-Defense but he has also learnt the importance and advantages of self-discipline, healthy eating and respect.
Enrolling Daniel at SKIF was a great decision and we are very pleased at the results. We looked forward to see how our child improves, not only as a student of Karate, but also as how he grows in strength of character.
Our boys learned the importance of commitment, dedication, first time listening, and respect. As parents we noticed right away what they were learning at Dojo was carrying over at home too. The staff brings a great balance of fun, patience, and discipline to every class. We are very pleased with our decision to join SKIF and know that it has made a great impact on the character building of our boys.
We are excited to watch our kids grow in a school that supports their differences and challenges their goals. SKIF Karate is not just an activity or a hobby it is an investment into our kids. Thanks!
My children joined SKIF after starting training with another dojo in Islamabad. The difference was clear to see and they have developed much more and much quicker due to the instruction by Sensai Kasim and his team. The seriousness of the training is evident but also the confidence and skills that the children carry outside of the class is much better. I am very pleased at the focus and refined skills Sensai Kasim has managed to give both my children. I am also pleased that the progress is discussed and parents are involved in discussions of how the children are doing. Thank you for all your hard work. (currently green belts)
