The JKR-UK does not allow anybody below the grade of Sandan (3rd Dan) to run a dojo. A Shodan or Nidan may teach under the guidance of a JKR senior nominated by the JKR-UK Chief Instructor.
If you are a JKR Dan grade and wish to teach you must attend the JKR International Instructors seminars and the JKR-UK instructors program.
Therefore all JKR dojos in the UK have well trained and fully qualified sensei.
Dojo sensei will be CRB checked.
The dojo will provide a qualified First Aid attendance at all sessions.
All dojo’s will have instructor and member insurance.
All JKR-UK dojo’s offer membership and licencing to the JKR. Gradings and certification is recognised by the JKR International and the JKR Hombu in Tokyo, Japan.
Only Gradings organised at a JKR-UK dojo are genuine Shindo Jinen Ryu/Ryobukai grades.
The JKR-UK is gradually expanding its dojo network throughout the UK.
All attempts are made to keep the dojo list as up to date as possible, but please contact the JKR-UK administration for your nearest dojo, just in case you can’t find one near you on this website.
