About FSKA

Shihan Kenneth Yoshinobu Funakoshi, founder and advisor of the Funakoshi Shotokan Karate Association is fourth cousin to Master Gichin Funakoshi – the founder of Modern Shotokan. Shihan Funakoshi moved to San Jose, California to teach karate in December 1986. In 1987, the non-political Funakoshi Shotokan Karate Association was founded with its world headquarters now in Milpitas, CA and affiliates throughout the United States, Mexico, Europe, Africa, Middle East and South America.

AFFILIATION

FSKA is a non-political organization. Each dojo affiliates directly with Shihan Funakoshi – we do not have regional directors. The reason for this is to eliminate political structures. Should you decide to affiliate with FSKA, you would deal directly with Shihan Funakoshi. FSKA recognizes your current rank if issued by a recognized organization. However, once you become an FSKA affiliate, you will need to meet FSKA requirements for future ranking. [CONTACT US] to learn more.
