We are the New England dojo of Japan Karate Do Ryobu-Kai (JKR). JKR New England is part of an international martial arts organization with branches in more than 20 countries around the world. We provide instruction in Shindo Jinen Ryu karate, one of the oldest styles of traditional Japanese karate, and one of the first to be recognized officially.
In addition to the punches, strikes and kicks commonly associated with karate, Shindo Jinen Ryu incorporates joint locks, throws, and takedowns, making it a particularly well-rounded martial art. Training within JKR is founded on traditional methods, stressing discipline, dedication, and hard work, with an added emphasis on philosophy and education.
