Shihan Eddie Daniels 9th Dan

The Shukokai Karate Federation (SKF) was formed in 1980 by the late Chief Instructor Shihan Eddie Daniels 9th Dan, who was one of the most respected pioneer Karate teachers in the country. Shihan Daniels came from the old school of karate, and was part of the golden pioneer generation of karate when karate was fresh in the uk back in the 1960's.


The Shukokai Karate Federation is now headed by Shihan Eddie Daniels  wife Sensei Solfrid Daniels 7th Dan and Shihan Daniels most senior student Sensei Clem Braithwaite 7th Dan.


Sensei Keith Cockburn 7th Dan, Sensei Audun Daniels 7th Dan and Sensei Paul Richards 7th Dan also help support the SKF Chief Instructors.


Shukokai Karate Federation (SKF) have built a reputation for producing students and instructors of the highest standards. Although sport is only part of our organisation we have regularly produced National & International Champions in both Kumite & Kata within Shukokai and All-Styles.
