Dunoon Karate Jutsu Kai was established in 1983 by Sensei Alan Kirk. Sensei Alan Kirk originally trained with the then Sensei Dowler and a young Kaicho Bernard Creton in the South of England and moved back to Scotland, with the guidance of Kaicho Creton he set up the Dunoon club.
Shihan Pam Horton 6th Dan started at the club in July 1984 and quickly, through hard work, moved up the ranks and in 1990 graded to 1st Dan and also took over the reins of the Dunoon club. In 1994 due to a local split, Sensei Alan came back out of retirement and has been Scottish chairman ever since, with Shihan Pam, who graded to 5th Dan in 2011, being the Senior Instructor for the Scottish Area.
Shihan Pam first went to the KJK summer camp in 1988 and been to every summer camp since. She has had many students compete at association tournaments, always coming away with “silver wear” including herself. Shihan Pam has also run the Associations Junior Camp held in Dunoon every year since the first camp was in 1991.
