Kokusai Karate Jutsu kai has been affiliated with the town of Maidstone for over 40 years, its doors having first opened to the general public in the 1970s. Originally based at the Mote Park Pavillion, Maidstone and later at the Westborough Sports Centre, it was one of the first of many dojos across the country under the constant leadership of Kaicho Bernard Creton.
Today Maidstone dojo remains an integral part of Kokusai Karate Jutsu Kai. Its’ past and present instructors remaining true to the guidance and ideology of Kaicho Bernard Creton who has been the consistent factor since its creation.
Currently under the guidance and tuition of Shihan Ryan Gordon (6th Dan) Maidstone Karate Jutsu Kai continues to go from strength to strength. Shihan Ryan Gordon started his training in 1978 and with Kaicho Creton in 1981. Quickly demonstrating his potential Shihan Ryan trained hard to become a proficient martial artist.
