My Organisation

JSKA South Africa

JSKA South Africa

JSKA SA rapidly grew into a national and internationally respected style organization winning medals and more important, respect from the world karate forum. Namibia, Zimbabwe and Mozambique invested their trust into our dynamic organization.

JSKA SA protects the ancient culture of unarmed combat practiced in a modern environment with diverse challenges and opportunities. We believe in the building character and ethics founded in loyalty and respect.

Our schools spread across southern Africa carry the banner of JSKA SA with pride knowing that not all karate schools can uphold and honour the code of our style organization. We will never sacrifice our character to gain numbers or popularity!

We will remain true in loyalty, integrity and hard traditional karate-do practiced by leaders of our art in Japan and South Africa.
