Open for 2024!

All our dojos are open for the year. We look forward to a packed 2024 with the JSKA Nationals taking place in May, a tour to Namibia taking place in April, and the JSKA Africa Karate Festival taking place in November.

Development Tour 2024

In the first week of April, we will be taking a team to Swakopmund, Namibia, to participate in the 27th Shotokan International Development Tour and Tournament. We can’t wait to see our JSKA friends in Namibia again for this fun event!


JSKA Africa Karate Festival 2023

In November 2023, JSKA Africa hosted the annual JSKA Africa Karate Festival in Pretoria, South Africa. We were joined from countries all over Africa, including participants from Angola, Kenya, Zimbabwe and South Africa. It was a wonderful event and we look forward to hosting Africa again in 2024!

The 10th JSKA World Karate Championships were hosted in Lübeck, Germany. JSKA South Africa was represented by a team of enthusiastic supporters, dedicated referees, committed coaches and loyal students returning home with 41 medals! Present at the event was 795 individual and team entries competing in 125 divisions over four days including a masters training camp, referee briefing and tournament on seven tatamis.
