This site is based on my daily practice of traditional Shotokan Karate-Do. I'm a Japan and international instructor based in Oita City. My dojo constantly has high-level trainees from all over Japan and, occassionally karateka from abroad, seeking true budo. More than anything else, unlike the majority of other karate-do websites, this page is primarily dedicated to training itself; that is, Karate-Do as a vehicle for holistic development.

JKA GODAN DIPLOMA
The box the diploma came in.
Last night, after training, Nakamura Masamitsu Shihan formally presented me with my JKA (Japan Karate Association) Godan shojou. I have to say, it was a great honour for me to receive this qualification from Nakamura Shihan. Osu, André
