It was originally called Wado-Ryu Karate Committee (Scotland).

Today the SKF is the largest and most successful karate association in Scotland. We are members of the Scottish Karate Governing Body, the only recognised governing body for Karate in Scotland.

The SKF teaches Wado-Kai Karate around Scotland with clubs mainly based in Edinburgh, the Lothians, Fife, the Borders and Lanarkshire.
