About Us

Mission Statement

The Canada JKA Karate Federation (CJKF) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to teaching traditional Shotokan Karate according to the standards and principles of the Japan Karate Association (JKA).  As one of two organizations in Canada recognized by the JKA, we strive to improve the level of Karate in Canada.  We host clinics, seminars, gradings and qualification exams for our members and instructors so they can continually seek to improve their skills.  It is our goal to offer every member the chance to fully participate in and enjoy all of the benefits that Karate has to offer. 

We are an open organization and welcome individuals and groups with an interest in Shotokan Karate. Should you wish to participate at any of our events or would like more information about our organization, feel free to contact us below.
