Welcome to the website of the JKS Shotokan-Ryu Karatedo Association India. We are a Shotokan Karate association, having taken form as the Shotokan Ryu Karate Do Association of India in 2009,at the initiative of our Founder and Chief Instructor Sensei Koushik Bose, who presently holds a 6th Dan Black Belt from the KAI. We aim to be an affiliation entity for Shotokan Yudansha/Instructor(s)/groups all over India.
We offer affiliation to Individual Yudansha and/or Instructor(s) and/or groups that choose to affiliate with us. The affiliation can be : Dojo / District / State / Organization or any such suitable arrangement as may be considered fit and proper. We would naturally prefer affiliates from the Shotokan stable, but also warmly welcome Yudansha/Instructor(s)/groups from similar or even other Karate systems, as long as they participate through the medium of Shotokan Karate.
Our affiliation is with the Japan Karate Shoto Federation (JKS) and hense the syllabus will be that of the JKS. We are dedicated to train the Asai Ryu. We are also affiliated to the KAI and thus with the WKF. Our main aim is to strengthen the practise of Shotokan Karate by means of training in line with international standards. We look forward to the future with a renewed focus and vision.
