Shotokan Karate Greensborough


Tokaido JKA gi and black beltWith a vast membership in over 120 countries, the JKA is the world’s largest and most prestigious karate organization. Recognized heir to the Shotokan karate tradition, it is the only legal karate entity officially approved by the Japanese government as an association of members Shadan Hojin for the promotion of karate, and granted a tax-free status. More importantly, the JKA is the preserver of the soul and spirit of the art of kokufu-bunka karate-do-karate based Shotokan Karate Kataon the ancient Japanese tradition of Bushido (the way of the samurai). The JKA's mission is to promote this way of karate throughout the world, ensuring that it remains true to the philosophical precepts upon which it was founded.

JKA is
family martial art and self-defense school where mothers, fathers, sons and daughters can share their martial arts  and self defence experience in Melbourne's Northern Suburbs.  Our style is predominately non-contact so students can expect to train hard, but feel safe. For those in our senior class contact sparring is an option along with semi and no contact fighting. 

JKA Greensborough is built on sharing and learning from all students' life time experiences and to gain strength from those we know and meet. Everyone at JKAA Greensborough is encouraged to act, behave, believe and conduct themselves in a way that sees them as a black belt long before it has happened.  It is a representation of what is within us that makes a student a black belt, even when they are only beginning their martial arts journey. This is what makes every student at JKA Greensborough a winner.
