Jikoboei-Ryu Karate

Welcome to the England Karate Association

Chief Instructor- Jason Lester 5th Dan E.K.A.

Founder of the England Karate Association and Jikoboei-Ryu Karate

Jikoboei-Ryu literally means 'self-defence school', and is a style of karate founded and developed by Jason Lester 5th Dan.  Jikoboei-Ryu is the official style for the E.K.A. and is a dynamic form of Karate which inherits the characteristics of both Na-Ha and Shurei-Te styles of 

Okinawan Karate. 

Jikoboei-Ryu is a synthesis of Shukokai and Shotokan karate and is a fast and fluid style which consists of hard hitting techniques and explosive power. Jikoboei-Ryu inherits the double hip twist from Shukokai which maximises the force of strikes and continues to explore the body mechanics, which is the primary focus for developing maximum power with the least amount of effortresulting in an improvement 

in combative methods.

The styles primary focus is the study of bunkai contained within the kata, unlike most styles were competition is the main focus, Jikoboei-Ryu does not participate or are involved in any aspect of sport and tournament.

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.

Karate is a martial art which originated and developed on the small island of Okinawa. Karate is a system of self-defence 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-awarness, self-discipline, self-control and courtesy.

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