It happen here:  add(jLabel1);  jLabel1.setText("Defensive Moves"); setBackground(Color.white);




import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import java.util.*;
import javax.swing.*;

public class MyClass4 extends JPanel {
  JLabel jLabel1;  
 
  ArrayList myArrayList = new ArrayList();

// Constructor
public MyClass4() {

    setLayout(new GridLayout(0,3)); // Setting MY layout...

add(jLabel1);  jLabel1.setText("Defensive Moves"); setBackground(Color.white);

    looprow:
        for (int row=0; row<20; row++) {
            for(int col=0; col<3; col++) {
                int n=(20*col+row+1);
                if (n>50) break looprow;
                JCheckBox check = new JCheckBox("" + n);

            myArrayList.add(check);
add(check); // Adding it to ME
}
}
}
}

Friend;

You need to also call the jLabel after you had declared it like :

import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import java.util.*;
import javax.swing.*;

public class MyClass4 extends JPanel {

  JLabel jLabel1;  
  ArrayList myArrayList = new ArrayList();

public MyClass4() {

     // Call it like this . . .
    jLabel = JLabel();

    setLayout(new GridLayout(0,3)); // Setting MY layout...
 
    add(jLabel1);  
    jLabel1.setText("Defensive Moves");
    setBackground(Color.white);

    looprow:
    for (int row=0; row<20; row++) {
    for(int col=0; col<3; col++) {
    int n=(20*col+row+1);
    if (n>50) break looprow;
    JCheckBox check = new JCheckBox("" + n);

    myArrayList.add(check);
    add(check);
    }
    }
}
}

Hope that helps . . .

jLabel = JLabel();

should be

jLabel = new JLabel();   //to initialise a new JLabel you use the new operator.
