Adult Classes are different from junior classes as the tempo is lifted up to represent a more practical applied karate with the main emphasis on Bu Jitsu ( technique of combat) which is concerned with real fighting separating it from Bu Do ( the way of combat ) which was adopted in the twentieth century as a peaceful art.

Pads, body armour and gloves are often worn to enable each student to feel the technique both on striking and receiving.

In karate the whole of the body is used as a weapon here are some basic methods taught amongst many others:

Blocking – This is a term usually used to express a block as defence against an attacker .In the adult class more emphasis is given on the attacking aspect of a Uke Waza (blocking technique) as an attack rather than a mere parry or block.

Punching – There are different ways of punching in the adult class more emphasis is given on where to punch (vulnerable points of the torso) going from basic grading techniques to practical fighting methods using different types of hand techniques.

Kicking – Many different kicks are used and taught to full extent both in basic form and practical applications.

Originally no kicks were delivered to the head therefore the student is given instruction on all levels for self protection enabling the student to have an effective kick from day one.

Gradings:

JKL Dojo grade students when they are seen to be ready both in mind and body therefore it is impossible to say when a student will grade.We believe that the study of karate should be a non pressured environment to grade but a continuation of the training every time they train. We also emphasise the need to train outside the Dojo (training hall) keeping up fitness and knowledge.

It is said that it takes a child up to 5 years to learn to walk properly with correct balance – co ordination – timing – on this basis if a student trains 3 times per week in the dojo then they may be ready to attempt a Sho Dan ( black belt level 1) after 5 years of study.

To obtain a black belt with JKL Dojo a student must be able to show strength of body, character and basic knowledge of Shotokan Karate and be able to perform basic techniques with a degree of competence.

Criminal Convictions;

No person will be allowed to start training on disclosure of a criminal record or will be expelled from the club if it is found that a criminal record has not been disclosed to JKL instructors.

On disclosure of any criminal record it will be the instructor’s decision if a person may commence or continue training in JKL Dojo.
