Welcome to the England Karate Association


President & Chief Instructor

Jikoboei-Ryu literally means 'self-defense' school and

is a style of karate founded and developed by

Jason Lester 4th Dan


Jikoboei-Ryu is the official style for the E.K.A. and is a dynamic 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.

Jikoboei-Ryu decends from Shukokai and Shotokan karate and is a dynamic form of Okinawan Karate which inherits the characteristics of both Na-Ha and Shuri-Te styles of Okinawan Karate.


Unlike most karate schools and associations were their focus is on Kumite (sparring) / competitions, Jikoboei-Ryu's main emphasis is the study of Kata and Bunkai (application) and impact training. Jikoboei-Ryu has just one Kata in its system, something completely unheard of in today,s modern world of karate.


The training in Jikoboei-Ryu is divided into four sections, these are Kihon, (basics), Kata, (formal exercise), Bunkai Kumite and Impact training.


Jason specializes in Bunkai and through his extensive training, research and investigation, he has made some quite remarkable findings and results in both Bunkai and impact training.
