Kenbu Dojo a fully inclusive, family oriented martial arts club for children and adults, based in the heart of Gloucester. The specifically structured training syllabus uniquely combines Kenpo Karate and Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu, which ensures that all students will learn and explore both a modern sporting system and a traditional Japanese martial art.
Kenbu Dojo provides a fun, safe and nurturing environment where the focus is on learning the skills of a martial art, in which most of the students have grown up within this structure, developing the core skills of coordination, discipline, fitness and loyalty. Students can enjoy the simply once a week meeting friends while learning a useful skill, while others train up to five days a week, and aim to compete at national and international level, there is something to suit all students.
We also do lots of extra activities as a club, board game nights, picnics in the park, ninja nights, Japanese days, camping trips... the list goes on.
