At JKAWFS we practice karate as taught by the Japan Karate Association (JKA). JKA is the largest karate organisation in the world and the one with most authority – the Keeper of Karate's Highest Tradition. JKA was founded in 1949 and has members in over 100 countries worldwide. At the JKA karate is not just a sport. It is a martial art where the aim is to harmonise mind and body for balance, strength, perseverence, patience – for total confidence and self mastery.
