Jikan Jikan is a small association of clubs with members and affiliations in the UK, Europe and Japan. The headquarters is Jikan Dojo located in East London, England.
The main theme of Jikan Kai is the practice and promotion of traditional Japanese budo as "a way of life". We have a special focus on realistic self-defence in addition to education on Japanese culture. While some members may participate in sport (especially children), we are not a sporting group. Jikan Kai is a non-political, friendly association of martial arts enthusiasts. The main arts practised are Karate-Do, Jujutsu and weaponry with high level Japanese and Okinawan mentors and affiliations. Other clubs and individuals are welcome to join our association.
Some of the benefits include:
Members-only events in karate, jujutsu, iaido, bojutsu, kenjutsu and okinawan kobudo, regardless of your style.
Online resources - theory courses and video portals.
Promotion of your group in our social media and future publications.
Coaching qualifications (ongoing development)
Dan recognition/homologation. Subject to criteria.
Dan testing. Joint grading panel for karate and jujutsu
