Chief Instructor JKA International Canada

Sensei Jerry Marr has more than 60 years experience in Japanese martial arts, with over 50 years in Karate. He holds the rank of 7th Dan, recognized by the Japan Karate Shotorenmai (JKS) organization, formerly headed by the famous Tetsuhiko Asai, 9th Dan. Sensei Marr received the promotion to the rank of Shichi-Dan (7th Dan) in October 2007. The Technical Examining Board of the JKS in Japan reviewed Marr’s technical background and experience; and with Katsumata Sensei’s recommendation, felt this promotion was highly deserved. On February 1st, 2013, Sensei Marr was promoted to the rank of 8th Dan by the Technical Committee of JKA International of Canada, which was presented his certificate by Katsumata Sensei.

Master Nishiyama once referred to Marr Sensei as being a pioneer in promoting and developing Traditional JKA Shotokan Karate in Canada. The development and success of present day Traditional JKA Shotokan is due largely to Marr’s efforts.
