Kinkan Dojo

Traditional Japanese Martial Arts

If you're into martial arts already, or you just have an interest in doing something new - you will not be disappointed by trying our a few classes with Jason, at the Kinkan Dojo. A great range of classes, enjoyable but sweat breaking. I think every student looks forward to going to class, purely because of the environment and the real desire to improve. A great place to go!
