Kinkan Dojo

Traditional Japanese Martial Arts

The Kinkan Dojo is fantastic!!! The training is ideal for all ages and abilities and I cannot recommend it enough! After joining I got my little brother involved and he loves it just as much as I do. Having participated in many different martial arts over the years this definitely stands alone at the top of the list, the training structure and encouragement you receive at the Kinkan Dojo ensure this is a very rewarding way to spend your free time.

Genbukan Kinkan Dojo, London’s Premier Japanese Martial Arts Training Centre: About Us: Children's Classes

Martial arts training benefits children in so many ways, including self control, self defence and self discipline. The skills children learn during martial arts training can help them develop the proper motivation, discipline and attitude necessary to reach their potential.


Martial arts training is fairly unique in comparison to other sports and activities. Not only will children learn to keep their bodies healthy and to defend themselves, they will develop goal setting skills, teamwork skills and a “can do” attitude necessary for them to be successful in the future. Learning these life skills at a young age can have a massive positive impact on what they can accomplish later in life.


What Will My Child Learn?

Your child will learn our Jujutsu martial arts syllabus in a non-competitive but challenging environment. As a beginner your child’s motor skills, discipline and attentiveness will be developed by practising the basic techniques from the syllabus.


As your child progresses their ability to have self control, to work with others and to practise more advanced techniques will be developed. Their goal setting skills will be developed as a result of following the syllabus, they will be challenged to set goals and work towards their accomplishment.


Throughout the training specific games are used for fitness and to create fun, and also to develop both the child’s ability to work alone (self discipline) and to achieve a goal as part of a team (working with others).


All of our instructors are fully CRB checked, first aid qualified, and internationally certified in order to provide your child with the highest quality instruction.
