JKS Scotland will soon be releasing a series of Kyu Grading tutorial videos which will be available to assist you or your child to understand and be able to perform the three disciplines of your next grading:

Kihon: Basic Grading techniques 
Kata: Pre arranged form
Kumite: Attack Sparring

All Parents/ Students will be issued with tutorial password to enable you to access the information page here  and we would encourage you as parents to spend time with your child (similarly to within their schooling structure) rehearsing the requirements.

We truly believe that parental Involvement/ Encouragement and Assessment will help u and your child to achieve the next level which will in turn allow you to gain valuable life lessons on your pursuit towards the coveted JKS Karate Black Belt.

If you wish to receive the links then please email: 

with the quote HOMEWORK in the subject matter, along with your Name, Childs Name, Club, Instructor, Belt Colour in the email content.

This will be available for all students from all clubs within JKS Scotland

We are affiliated to the Japan Karate Shotorenmei with its Headquarters based in Sugamo, Japan.

We work as a co-operative with JKS affiliated countries worldwide to foster and develop JKS karate within the UK.

No other association can offer the opportunities or level of instruction that you will find within JKS Scotland.

All of our instructors are qualified to teach karate to children through the Scottish Karate Governing Body (the only governing body for karate in Scotland) and are registered with Disclosure Scotland/PVG and recognised by Sport Scotland.
