About

Welcome to the World Headquarters of Karate

The JKA is the most authoritative and by far the largest organization in the world, the Keeper of Karate’s Highest Tradition. No other organization approaches karate with greater intensity of purpose than we do, or maintains such a large and dedicated professional staff of high-trained.

At the JKA, karate is not merely a sport; it’s a martial art whose aim is the harmonizing of mind and body for balance, strength, perseverance, patience-for total confidence and self-mastery.
