The Way of Balance

At the JKA, we put immense focus on the proper form and balance of each kihon, or basic technique. Through extensive training, our instructors have rigorously, scientifically analyzed and separated out each individual movement in each individual kata, and developed an unrivalled spectrum of kihon techniques. Using these special kihon, we have refined the kata to be more applicable in kumite. And in turn, the experience accumulated through kumite gives feedback to further perfect one’s kihon and kata. In this way kihonkata and kumite form the inseparable trinity of JKA karate. Through constant repetition of such techniques, your body learns to move effortlessly, naturally. And your mind learns to be effortless and natural too. JKA karate is the way of balance.

Kihon refers to the fundamental building blocks and basic techniques in martial arts.
Kata are pre-arranged sequences of movements that simulate a fight against imaginary opponents.
Kumite involves sparring or live combat practice with a training partner or opponent.
