One of the
key strengths of the JKA is its method of teaching. All our instructors are JKA certified from Japan. Each instructor
undergoes rigorous evaluation and testing before being granted his or her instructor qualifications. This unique specialist
instruction system, established decades ago, is still the only one of its kind, and produces some of the best athletes and
teachers in the world of karate. All JKA instructors—whether in Japan or heading up Regional or National branches around
the world—pass on the fundamentals and techniques they have mastered, ensuring that karate’s highest tradition
lives on in each dojo.
In addition to being certified
as a JKA Instructor, JKA Bahrain Instructors are certified JKA examiners, and judges. JKA Bahrain instructors
must also attend and pass re-certification programs on regular basis as per JKA Japan.
JKA Bahrain instructors are volunteers who wish to train and maintain their JKA credentials and membership.
