U.K.B. Kenkokan Karate-do is a dynamic and fast expanding style of martial arts. The style has its roots in traditional and ancient forms but is structured on modern and scientific training methods which suits all body types.
Kenkokan techniques are structured on various karate styles, mainly drawing from Shorinji-ryu, Shotokan and Goju-ryu. Both non-contact and safety contact karate are taught at all the clubs.
The Kenkokan organisation promotes the martial art of karate and self defence, to teach the student both physical and mental discipline. Hence, a great deal of stress is put on achieving not only flexibility and aerobic fitness, but, also learning to relate to a strict set of moral values which are often forgotten in today’s society
