The JKA are famously known as the Keeper of Karate's Highest Tradition. We follow the teachings of the JKA where karate is not a sport but an art. Karate is a martial art and system of self-defence that originated hundreds of years ago in Okinawa.  Literally, "karate-do" mean "the way of the empty hand".

JKA KARATE-DO is the original pedigree of the SHOTOKAN Style
