Zen Do Kai is a Martial Arts System founded in 1970 when Bob Jones opened his first martial arts club in Elizabeth St, Melbourne. It has evolved by adding the principles and techniques of many martial arts disciplines to form a modern and effective system which covers all ranges of self defence including: punches, kicks, ground fighting, multiple attackers and weapon defence.
Here in Port Lincoln two versions of the Zen Do Kai System are taught. One is designed for adults (high school age and above) and focuses on teaching realistic, safe self defence techniques. Most imporatly students are taught how to use the confidence and empowerment they gain from learning the techniques along with street smarts to aviod confrantation all together.
The second version of Zen Do Kai avalible is aimed at catering for the needs of primary school aged children. It was formulated over time, when experenced instructors began working along side school teachers to form a curriculim which would through the teaching of martial arts techniques instill in the student core values and skills such as confidence, disipline, focus, communication, stranger danger and team work.
