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. The styles main emphasis is the study of kata, bunkai,

body mechanics and impact training. The E.K.A. does not participate in any aspect of

sport or competition.

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. Many of the archaic stances, techniques and out-dated training methods have been modernised to improve combat capabilities.

Jikoboei-Ryu decends from Shukokai, but also combines techniques from Shotokan Karate which is a defining characteristic and sets Jikoboei-Ryu apart from other styles. Jikoboei-Ryu is a fast and fluid style due to its relatively high stance aiding mobility which consists of hard hitting techniques and explosive power.

The E.K.A. explores the body mechanics, which is the primary focus for developing maximum power with the least amount of effort, resulting in an improvement in combative methods. Another defining characteristic is that each technique must combat effective.

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.
