JKS World organization

The late Shuseki Shihan Tetsuhiko Asai established the NPO Japan Karate Shoto Federation in the year 2000. Unfortunately he passed away in the year 2006. This sad event raised many difficulties which we were able to overcome due to the efforts of the Headquarters’ Instructors and strong passion of the JKS members.

Our long time ideal is ‘Lifetime Karate’ training. So we will try hard to spread and develop karate-do and work towards the improvement of our federation.
