from Master Jones
|One of Master Jones’
first efforts was to unify American
Karate through the introduction of the “Universal Karate System.” This System was designed for Americans,
including all styles of Karate: hard and soft, hands and feet. In this
Master Jones developed five snake forms that have been accepted
country. The Universal Karate System will prevail at all National
League, Inc. tournaments. Master Jones continues to insist on following
traditional program of Karate discipline, both physical and mental.
with all of this to his credit, Master Jim Jones
continues to look for other frontiers to pioneer in the world of Karate. Grand Master Jones is now a 10th
degree Black Belt and has been featured in numerous books on Karate. Most recently he was given a chapter in two
books. The first of the two books is called “Men of Steel Discipline”,
by William Hinton, and was thought to be the first book to recognize
Martial Arts masters. William’s second
book was called “The Universal Mind”, which recognizes top martial
throughout the United States. In his
civilian life, Jones still resides in the Chicago land area with his
Marian, and his three children, Michael, Jocelyn, and James Emile.
Some of Jones’s early students are today’s leading instructors, top tournament contenders and champions. Master Jones is recognized by many as the father of Midwest Karate through his visionary leadership and his dedication to the Martial Arts. As a pioneer, he still works to better the art of Karate.
