Kinkan Dojo

Traditional Japanese Martial Arts

The Kinkan Dojo is by far the best and well managed dojo's that I have trained at, in a friendly atmosphere that always welcomes new students. I have been training for 2 and a half years now and look forward to midweek and weekend sessions. The emphasis is serious yet controlled and relaxed, and I see myself training for many more years to come.
