I have been a member of a few martial arts clubs in the past 2 years, and this is the first I have stuck with. The reason? Well it is the best I have been too so far. What you will find here is a friendly, truly fun environment to train in, and a disciplined and well taught one to succeed in. Jason manages to bring about a perfect balance in his teaching, with everything explained so you truly understand what it is your learning and how it works. This shows its benefits in class as it instantly becomes apparent all Jason's students are on top of their game which is really rare to find. After all you can always judge a class by its weakest member, and you will be hard to find one here!

Welcome to the Kinkan Dojo website
About Kinkan Dojo
We are dedicated to teaching traditional Japanese martial arts under the direction of Dojo-cho Jason Hindley, a direct student of Grandmaster Shoto Tanemura Sensei.
The foundation of all our training is the Amatsu Tatara tradition, which has a history of knowledge and training methods that goes back over 2,700 years. The Amatsu Tatara contains both martial arts techniques and training for the heart and spirit. Grandmaster Shoto Tanemura Sensei is the 58th generation Grandmaster of this traditional system.
Our training is based upon two traditional martial arts, Ninpo (more commonly known as Ninjutsu) and Jujutsu. Our system also includes weapons training and much more. You can find more detailed information for everything we do within the pages of this website.
We invite you to join us at our training locations in Hornchurch and Ilford. Please read the "joining training" information listed above for more information, and we look forward to training with you soon!
