So many people are now also looking for an effective and accessible form of self-defence. Karate’s premise of "there is no first attack" means that above all we promote the idea that not looking for trouble is a strong guiding principle. With that said, we specialise in the "one strike" approach which teaches us to use maximum force, very quickly to render an attacker out of action.
Increasingly, parents and school authorities are opening their eyes to be benefits of learning a martial art, and that it can instil in students the Japanese values of discipline, control and politeness. The Japan Karate Association prides itself on being the kepers of karate’s highest traditions. Its core ideals of seeking the perfection of character, being faithful and sincere, perseverance, accepting order and refraining from improper actions are values that are not only good for the individual but for society at large.
