Speed | Ferocity | Power

Welcome to the England Karate Association

The England Karate Association is based in Kidderminster, Worcestershire and is dedicated to teaching and promoting Karate as a martial art and not a sport.

Karate is a martial art which originated and developed on the small island of Okinawa.

Karate is an unarmed system of combat which consists of blocking techniques, punching, kicking, striking, trapping, locks, holds, throws, headbutts, stamping, grappling and vital points. Apart from being an excellent form of self-protection, Karate builds character and one gains self-confidence, self-awareness, self-discipline. self-control and courtesy.

Karate is perfect for meeting and making new friends, losing weight, improving your fitness while learning valuable self-protection skills. Karate is also a superior method of improving and maintaining ones health.

Jikoboei-Ryu Karate literally means 'self-defense school' and is a style of Karate founded and developed by Jason Lester. Jikoboei-Ryu is the official style for the E.K.A. and is a dynamic form of Okinawan Karate which inherits the characteristics of both Na-Ha and Shuri-Te styles of Okinawan Karate.

Jikoboei-Ryu decends from Shukokai and Shotokan Karate and is a fast, fluid style which consists of hard hitting techniques and explosive power. Jikoboei-Ryu is a system of combat which seeks perfection and takes a lifetime of study, it demands dedication, continuous study, hard training and concentration.

The training in Jikoboei-Ryu is divided into four sections, these are Kihon, (basics) Kata (formal exercise), Bunkai Kumite and impact training. Unlike many other Karate schools and associations were their focus is on sparring, Jikoboei-Ryu's main emphasis is the study of Kata and Bunkai (application). Jikoboei-Ryu has just one Kata in its system, something completely unheard of in today's modern world of Karate.
