JKS Ireland leads in Irish Fighter

Issue 1/2017 of the Irish Fighter magazine is out now and we are very proud to say JKS Ireland has the cover story.

Inside, the article is a biography of our Technical Director, Dermot O'Keeffe Sensei 6th Dan JKS and traces his journey in karate from age 16 in Coolock, Dublin to Technical Director of the JKS in Ireland. It is a frank and at times humorous piece that gives an insight into Dermot Sensei's personal karate journey.

Also featured in this edition is a report of our recent excellent seminar with Arimoto Sensei, one of the up-and-coming JKS Japan instructors.

This edition showcases a new format for the Irish Fighter, bringing all the Irish martial arts news together in a clean & crisp publication. Congratulations to the Editor, Rob Corwell on the very stylish new look.
