Sevenoaks Karate Justu Kai,
Karate Jutsu Kai has been present in the UK since the early 1970’s. Originally under the banner of British Karate Kyokushinkai (BKK) the association flourished in the midst of public recognition for the martial arts. In 1980 the association altered direction forming a nucleus of clubs under the new umbrella of British Karate Jutsu Renmei (BKJK). Jutsu Remnei was the brainchild of Kaicho Creton and friend/associate (the then) Sensei Dickie Dowler together their martial ideals were implemented. By 1986 it became clear that the two instructors had different motivations which led to an amicable parting, and the formulation of a new association, Kokusai Karate Jutsu Kai (KKJK).
