Welcome to JKA Karate East Lothian

JKA Karate East Lothian is a family club dedicated to teaching traditional Shotokan Karate through concentrating on good basic technique, taught in an encouraging and supportive atmosphere.

Done properly, basic karate practice offers a good workout, promotes flexibility, assists with concentration and provides elements of self-defence training for encounters or situations outwith the dojo.

Beginners only need loose fitting clothes - and the first lesson is always free so you can see if this traditional martial art is for you.

A gi, or karate suit, comes later and can  be secured through your club instructor.

JKA Karate East Lothian is affiliated to JKA Scotland and to the Japan Karate Association, headquartered in Tokyo and generally regarded as the heir to the Shotokan karate tradition first developed by Master Funakoshi Gichin and codified by Sensei Nakayama.

To see if this art is for you, call Sensei Bert Stewart on 07863-135269 , email him or arrange to turn up early for the classes listed on this site.

Squad Training at Dalgety Bay

Squad training is a chance to develop and test your skills in a more intense atmosphere than normal classes. Reserved for brown and black belts only, squad training involves working with karateka from across Scotland on your kata, kumite and kihon, with the emphasis firmly on honing your skills for taking part in competition karate events. The key thing you'll need for taking part in squad training is enthusiasm.
 
While many of our more experienced karateka are competing at European level, and could be said to be elite athletes, they need to be pushed hard and a large turn out at squad training creates the kind of atmosphere that is needed to help people dig a bit more out of their talent and skills. Organised on a monthly basis, or sooner, depending on the proximity to major championships, squad training also allows brown belts preparing for black belt the chance to taste some of the pressure they'll experience in dan grading.
