Values and Ethics

Renshinkan England is a very traditional karate school which is goverened by a strong set of values and ethics passed down to us from our Grand Master, Soke Iwao Tamotsu. Shihan Julia has an absolute commitment to teaching karate as a path for self improvement and force for good in the community. These values are to be found in the core beliefs of budo and zen.
