The Penn College Martial Arts Club team is a member of the ISKF (International Shotokan Karate Federation) which is a non- profit organization established in 1977. The ISKF encourages the sound development of its members so that they may benefit physically, morally, and spiritually from the art of karate.
The association also aims to promulgate, perpetuate, and improve true karate-do throughout the world. There are many benefits to joining the ISKF. Membership allows the members of a dojo access to the best instruction, and the highest level instructors. Members may participate in camps, seminars, and tournaments sponsored by the ISKF throughout the world, and clubs are eligible to invite senior instructors for examinations and seminars.
