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.
The U.K.B. Kenkokan system boasts many senior and junior, male and female, black belts who are proven in competition and are very capable instructors ready to assist in the running of the organisation wherever required.
