AJKA-I Karate Association - International Instructor Training Program Overview

The AJKA-I Instructor Training Program is designed with two goals in mind. First, to encourage the formal training of karate instructors for the development of AJKA-I Shotokan Karate-do. Second, to help participants develop interpersonal, class presentation, skills necessary to motivate and guide others in their search to understand and master the art of Shotokan karate-do.

AJKA-I Karate Association - International Instructor Training Program

Candidates are admitted to the program based upon their interest and their potential to develop into highly qualified karate instructors. The program is based on time in training, attainment of ranking, and performance of karate instruction in the candidate's own club.

Every person licensed as an instructor by the AJKA-I is required to attend and participate in at least 2 instructor training seminars each calendar year. Every effort is made to conduct these seminars at the individual's own training site, and/or national camps as to minimize travel requirements. Videos and written materials are offered as supplements to the training program.

Contact Sensei DeAngelis at [email rdeangelis@thesoleburyclub.com], for upcoming dates and times.
