Kinkan Dojo

Traditional Japanese Martial Arts

I have been a member of a few martial arts clubs in the past 2 years, and this is the first I have stuck with. The reason? Well it is the best I have been too so far. What you will find here is a friendly, truly fun environment to train in, and a disciplined and well taught one to succeed in. Jason manages to bring about a perfect balance in his teaching, with everything explained so you truly understand what it is your learning and how it works. This shows its benefits in class as it instantly becomes apparent all Jason's students are on top of their game which is really rare to find. After all you can always judge a class by its weakest member, and you will be hard to find one here!

Adult Classes

Training at the Kinkan Dojo is a truly unique experience. The time you spend in class is time to concentrate solely on you, where the normal stresses and pressures of life do not exist.


In training you will focus on gaining a deeper understanding of yourself through self reflection and practise. You will be surrounded and encouraged by like minded people who are walking the same path as you. You will become part of a family who challenge each other to become the best they can be, whilst respecting each other’s abilities and boundaries. Training is a challenge, but we only truly grow when we are challenged to become better than we are.


The benefits of training in this positive environment cannot be overstated. Imagine a much more confident version of you, with a strong sense of who you are and what you stand for. Imagine a much healthier and fitter you, with a positive mental attitude and the confidence to deal with all the challenges that life throws at you. Imagine a much more purposeful you, knowing what you want to accomplish and setting goals that help you achieve success.


This is the life path of the warrior, and we invite you to walk the path with us!
