Kin Shin Kai is a martial art in the ‘Goju Ryu karate’ tradition of ‘The Karate Kid’

We are headed by director and chief instructor, George Ciechanowicz  and his highly experienced Leadership Team

We particularly focus on Self Defense and Self Development

Technically, Kin Shin Kai is based on the traditional ‘Goju Kensha Karate’ of the late renowned master Ohtsuka Tadahiko

We deliver these varied influences in one unified system
