JKS Karate

Karate is an effective way to harness the body for both defense and attack. You learn through karate training your body to know and thus develop yourself both physically and mentally. This gives you more confidence and increased well-being while you keep your body in shape.

Shotokan is the world's most common style and is distinguished by giving opportunity to all regardless of age can participate. "Shoto" was Funakoshi Sensei's artist name and means "pinetrees whooshing", "Kan" means house, its style Shoto-kan .

In JKS India (AS) we attach much importance to everyone to participate, which is also one of the reasons why many of our member clubs offer both parent / child training. 
In JKS India (AS) we underline also the importance of being able to control his skills. Shotokan Karate is either semi or full contact and all punches, strikes and kicks marked only the opposition.

Karate Training is divided into the 3 K's
Kihon (basic techniques), Kata (form exercises) and Kumite (fighting)

Karate Training is divided into:


JKS Karate India kihon

Kihon BACIS techniques)

Bacis techniques in blocks, punches, strikes and kicks are both beginning in Karate and the ultimate goal. Although it may be only a matter of a few years to learn them, will total mastery may never come, even after lifelong training.

You have to train regularly, with maximum concentration and endeavor to perform the technique correctly every time. 
Kihon is learning the basic techniques, and aims to practice the movements technically, that is, precision, power, concentration and reflexes. Kihon is a simple but important form of exercise, which constitutes the major part of the training. After learning of individual techniques is the next step ido kihon (basic techniques when moving) where different basic techniques combined with movement in various positions. Here is trained elements such as timing, balance, coordination and konsentration. The goal of Ido Kihon is to perform the same techniques on the same precise and powerful way as the above basic technique.


JKS Karate India Kata

Kata Form Exercises)

Training of Kata is a very important part of Karate. Kata is a series of techniques that are performed in a specific succession. 


Kata Training is fighting against several invisible opponents. Each Kata contains very specific techniques that make great demands on technique, coordination, balance, timing and concentration.

The first Katas are relatively short and simple. Later they become more and more advanced. Kata is the oldest form of karate training.

The 26 standard Shotokan Kata: 
Heian Shodan, Heian Nidan, Heian Sandan, Heian Yondan, Heian godan, Tekki Shodan, Bassai-dai, Jion, Enpi, 
Kanku-dai, Hangetsu, Jitte, Gankaku, Tekki Nidan, Tekki Sandan, Bassai- sho, Kanku-sho, Chinte, sochin, Nijushiho, 
Jiin, meikyo, Wankan, Unsu, Gojushiho-sho, Gojushiho-dai.

It is important that all the kata Shihan Asai known and taught are remembered for future generations as they offer 
a high level of knowledge and often forgotten techniques for those who wish to understand karate as a martial art.

Junro Shodan, Junro Nidan, Sandan Junro, Junro Yondan, Junro godan, Joko-Issei, Joko-Nisei, Joko Joko-sansei-Yonsei, Joko-Gosei, Kibaken, Rantai, Suishu, Kashu, Rowshu, Sensho , Kakuyoku shodan, Kakuyoku Nidan, Sandan Kakuyoku,

Kumite ( Fighting)

Kumite means literally sparring / fighting, and when two people train their techniques against each other. Kumite is the ability to use everything you have trained in Kihon and everything you have learned in Kata against an opponent.


The way you train Kumite is through a set of attack and defense routines. Although there is an element of repetition of defense applications, the same skills to attack an opponent and defend an opponent's attack quickly developed.

Kumite allows you to "try out" one's Karate. Kumite allows you to try all the techniques you can against an equal or better opponent. When fighting in the dojo (training hall), the goal is not to win, but to test your techniques, your techniques work or not work for you. There are two types of Kumite: Yakusoku Kumite and Jiyu Kumite.
