The International Shotokan Karate Federation of Colorado and its branch schools are the premier dojos in the Denver area to learn authentic Shotokan Karate. This classical martial art emphasizes the development of good character and respect through the diligent practice of techniques based on sound fundamental body mechanics. As in all true art-forms, traditional karate training stresses the building of a solid, basic foundation before moving on to advanced techniques. Our unique program offers overall body conditioning, improved flexibility, practical self-defense, and the development of self confidence.
Classes at ISKF of Arvada are instructed by Sensei Mark Tarrant, 7th Degree black belt in the prestigious Japan Karate Association. Mr. Tarrant is a protege of Master Yutaka Yaguchi, 9th Degree Chief Instructor of the ISKF of Colorado and a member of the elite class of first-generation JKA instructors sent worldwide to teach real Shotokan Karate.
A world-class competitor, Mr. Tarrant’s career highlights include being two-time individual US National Champion and a member of seven national champion teams.
Mr. Tarrant has also competed internationally as a member of the US Team for ten consecutive years, placing in both individual and team events. Still actively training and coaching, Sensei Tarrant now teaches at ISKF of Arvada, a branch of the ISKF of Colorado, the headquarters of the Mountain States Region of the International Shotokan Karate Federation.
Upon Master Yaguchi’s retirement in 2016, Mr. Tarrant was personally appointed Vice Chief Instructor of the Mountain States Region, with the plan for Mr. Tarrant to assume the role of Chief Instructor some time in 2018.
