We are practicing traditional JKA Shotokan Karate and we are proud to represent the ATKF / ITKF. We are a branch of the JKA San Diego ( International ) under the Chief Instructor Sensei Falah Kanani 6th Dan
Sensei Falah Kanani in Southampton NY
It has been a year that Sensei Kanani joined us here in New York and it was more than succesful on all levels. Our school has expanded from our Southampton location to Sag Harbor, East Hampton and Riverhead. We had sucessful Nationals with our adult team placing 2nd and our Mickey Brown from Water Mill NY placing an overal 2nd place. In the meantime our competition team of advanced level kids has trained hard to compete in this years events. Nationals in LA in August of 2014 and World Championship in Cairo, Egypt in November of 2014.
However Sensei is hard at work on a national and internatinal level as well. Seminar included Missouri, Minnesota, Orgegon, Washington State, Texas, California as well as International in Austria. He was also elected to be the president of the American Traditional Karate Federation and is working double time on keeping the tradition alive.
The JKA Hamptons is alwasy working on improving the understanding of Traditional Karate versus commercialized Karate schools all over the country. We are preserving an art with many benefits from Self Defense to Fitness. Traditional karate teaches structure and it will benefit Adult and especially children to cope with our busy lives. The JKA Hamptons is also working on afterschool and enrichment programs here in several School Districts. Visit us at any of our locations and enjoy your first class for free.
This year our dojo has grown in leaps and bounds due to all our efforts to propagate and study Japanese Karate as Sensei Nishiyama thaught. Sensei Kanani has been Nishiyama Senseis student for over 30 years and he truly is a decendant of his evolutionary teachings. We really are enjoying Sensei Kanani's effectivness and precision in kata and kumite and we are all practicing and training hard.
