The aims and objectives of JKS Scotland are to foster, administer and advance the art of traditional Shotokan Karate.
Our goal is to teach, motivate, educate and guide our students and instructors while promoting exemplary ethics in Karate-Do.
We promise to do this through regular training of the highest order, course and grading events, special courses, and of course, competitions for both junior and senior alike.
JKS Scotland is the largest and most successful traditional Karate association in Scotland.
We are members of the Scottish Karate Governing Body, the only recognised Governing Body for Karate in Scotland, and are also fully affiliated to Japan Karate Shoto Federation Japan.
All instructors are fully insured and certified coaches through the Scottish Karate Governing Body (SKGB) and are Enhanced Disclosure Scotland/PVG Certified and recognised by Sport Scotland.
