JKS Shotokan New Zealand team members at the JKS World Championships in Ireland 2019.
I train with another small club but come to this one on Saturday morning for great intense 2 hour session for seniors.
I joined initially to get fit but have found that my co-ordination and memory have improved as well. I have found a community of people who make the days more enjoyable.
I came to investigate what the club was like and havent left since! Sean is an incredibly talented, knowledgeable and caring sensei (teacher). If you're interested in martial arts and self defense in a nurturing environment that you can trust and become a part of a family of like-minded students then this is the place. And its fun for the whole family!

Sensei Sean has been a great support to me (Anton van den Bergh ~ Timaru) on my journey into the JKS family. A comment from spectator at last tournament; "I wished we had a Sensei like him" - pointing to Sensei Sean when asked who she was talking about.... she thought his omnipresence and encouragement of his students all day long, was a great example of being a true Sensei!!
Well done Sensei Sean! I will try to live up to your standards!!
