"JKA New Zealand" was established in June 2003 having karate dojos in Auckland, Hamilton, Wanganui, Wellington, Timaru and Christchurch.
The members practice the “Shotokan” style of karate under the guidance of Sensei Karl Naoroji, a Fifth Dan black belt and an internationally qualified referee.
The training methods constantly emphasize strong work ethics but at the same time the techniques are taught in a very scientific way which optimizes both physical and spiritual progress for adults as well as kids.
Members undergo a rigorous training regime at two Dojo’s in Auckland :
Pakuranga Dojo, Pakuranga Intermediate School Hall, 43-49 Reeves Rd, Pakuranga, Auckland 2010
