ShinKen-Do was established in The United Kingdom over 27 years ago by Sensei Steve Joseph. After a steady but continued growth it is now a recognised and sort after practical martial art of self defence.
ShinKen-Do specializes in hand and foot techniques; joint manipulation, grappling, weapons defense, and gaining control of an opponent with minimum effort, therefore ShinKen-Do is considered to be a complete martial art.
It is our belief that an attack has no single form.
A common story heard is of the black belt expert in his/her chosen art, who is beaten by the ordinary street fighter. Unfamiliar with the tug, scratch and wrestle of a real fight confrontation they became unaware and blinded to the reality of actual combat.
This modern martial art consists of various techniques taken from the practical elements of several fighting arts.
Our aim is to equipped and prepare our pupils for every aspect of self-preservation, in this way they will deal with any form or style effectively.
This modern method is one of the most practical and realistic approaches to modern self-defense and at the same time adhering to essential values of discipline and respect.
Through regular training it offers physical fitness, mental awareness, self confidence, strength, fitness, good health, humility, honesty and integrity. Qualities that enhance everyday life.
