BUILDING physical and emotional strength, learning self- defence and increasing self- confidence, are some of the benefits that Japan Karate Shoto- Renmei Association Australia (JKS-Australia) can offer.

JKS-Australia provides a competitive environment where you can learn authentic traditional Japanese karate as taught in Japan.

Classes cater for all age groups, from beginners to advanced, junior to senior.

JKS-Australia chairman Hamid Mostofizadeh says people who train regularly in karate develop improved motor skills, balance, self awareness, confidence, self-defence and a great level of fitness.

The JKS Australia Gympie dojo is the only dojo in the Cooloola region registered in Japan and Japan Karate Shoto-Renmei is the only Karate style in Japan recognised and registered by the Japanese government, he said.

This year, in October, the Japan National Karate Team coach Shihan Masao Kagawa Sensei JKS 8th Dan will visit the Gympie club to train JKS-Australia instructors.

JKS Gympie welcomes new members to visit the open day on Saturday, February 2, 9-11am, at Apex Hall, Red Hill Rd, where the club trains.

Anyone who signs up on the day will receive one month free training.

At the JKS Gympie club there are no fixed contracts.
