Do you want to learn a fascinating, yet most powerful way of using your body & mind...the Shotokan JKA Karate way of punching, kicking , striking and blocking for Self-Defence together with building up your fitness and flexibility ?...

" Shotokan JKA Karate is not a great sport , but an ultimate martial art of Self-Defence. Shotokan JKA Karate is a method of self-defence without the use of weapons. It makes effective use of every muscle of the body on the fundamental techniques of punching,kicking,striking & blocking. Through training over a course of time, one learns how to make use of one's hands and legs as weapons for self-defence. The training also requires making the body supple & flexibile, as well as developing strong, explosive muscles. The aim of practise is to develop both mind & body, in harmony, in balance, strength, perseverance & patience, for total confidence and self-mastery "   Japan Karate Association ( JKA )
