As Bushido Karate Club is fully affiliated with SKIF Ireland (Shotokan Karate-Do International Federation Ireland), our students will have access to World SKIF and European SKIEF Championships. Once a student reaches brown belt they will be allowed to train with the SKIF Ireland squad training and try out for the SKIF Ireland National Team. If successful you will get to travel the world to represent your country and compete against other karatekas from around the globe. Often the SKIF World Championships is held in Japan so you could travel to the home country of Karate-Do. Information about squad training will be posted on this website and brown and black belts in the club will be notified by our Instructors.
The SKIF Ireland National Championships and other competitions such as the Munster Championships (Kanazawa Cup) take place annually. The basic requirment to competing is to have a Valid SKIF Ireland Karate Licence (All Bushido Karate Club Students have this), a pair of Karate-Do Mitts, Gumshield and lots of courage. The categories in the National and Munster Championships are both Kata and Kumite, you dont have to do both you can choose on the day which you feel more comfortable with.
