Although trained in Judo in his early years, Kanazawa Soke took up karate whilst at University under the late headmaster of JKA Shotokan, Sensei Masatoshi Nakayama. Kanazawa Soke is also one of the few remaining Karateka privileged to have studied under the great Shotokan Master Gichin Funakoshi, the famous Okinawan Karate Master who brought Karate to mainland Japan in 1922 from Okinawa and founded the Shotokan style.

In 1978, Kanazawa Soke set up SKIF (Shotokan Karatedo International Federation). SKIF is now the worlds largest Shotokan Karate Association under one chief instructor, having several million members in over 130 countries.
