cropped-hdkiKanshin Karate is affiliated with HDKI GB, a member of Hombu Dojo Karate International (HDKI), a young yet rapidly expanding karate association under the leadership of sensei Scott Langley, 7th dan.

The HDKI holds four key values:

  • Tradition – we endeavour to hold on to certain aspects of traditional karate that add value and depth to our art and enhance our connection to the past.
  • Innovation – we endeavour to explore and investigate karate principles and organisational structure, using modern concepts to enhance all aspects of our art and community.
  • Collaboration – we endeavour to create a group which allows meritocracy to be the driving force of structural power. Respect is earnt and freely given by the membership. The group will act as a vehicle for the fulfilment of individuals’ potential, whatever that may be.
  • Respect – we endeavour to create a community of like-minded karate-ka who empathise with each other and work together towards a common goal. Individuals will strive to reach a consensus on issues and be part of the decision-making process.

Through these values we aspire to:

  • Teach good karate and be kind to people
  • Have Karate Adventures
  • Provide Opportunity
  • Shu-Ha-Ri
