We are the national body of the JKS in England and are here to support our members of all ages, abilities and aspirations.

We teach traditional Shotokan Karate as taught at the JKS Honbu Dojo, Japan.

We encourage you to explore this site to know more about us and the JKS, and to contact us if you have any questions.

Japanese Heritage

Our strong ties with Japan provide exceptional opportunities for our members, from having our Dan Grades registered in Japan, through to opportunities for our members to enter Teikyo University and the world famous Honbu Dojo Instructor’s Course

Annual Japan Trip

Open Courses for All

The JKS believes in inclusivity for the worldwide karate family. Most of the JKS courses, including those with Japanese Hombu Dojo Instructors, are "Open Events" available to members of all ages, grades and organisations.
