The JKS Shotokan Karate Christchurch aims to provide the highest, professional and most advanced level of progressive Shotokan Karate training.
It is expected that each and every student diligently apply themselves in class and practice the same between lessons.
We are not a baby sitting service and look to have support of parents to encourage self discipline, commitment and genuine effort in the children karate journey. We ask the parents to support your child by watching, praising and to ask questions of what they have learnt and the meaning of the techniques. Such conversations will encourage passion and growth. This is good and will build knowledge and self esteem.
There is a strict code of conduct which everyone at the dojo must adhere too. Karate is more than just techniques, it is equally about one character and Karate always begins and end in respect ~ Rei.
We strive to be individually professional, respectful to all, and to be under the guidance of an internationally recognized legitimate and certified organization who offer and support a high standard of world class and recognized instructor tuition, certification programs, tournaments and examinations, that ultimately benefit both students and instructors.
