Karate Jutsu Kai is an established Martial Arts system with international recognition. Founded by the renowned Kancho Bernard Creton (9th dan), the style strives to provide a system of self defence with traditional values. In Kancho Creton we are fortunate to have a lineage, which leads back to the teaching of Mas Oyama himself and today, Kancho's continued passion and leadership inspires all those who follow him.
Dunoon Karate Justu Kai was established in 1983 by Sensei Alan Kirk. Sensei Alan Kirk originally trained with the then Sensei Dowler and a young Kancho Bernard Creton in the South of England and moved back to Scotland, with the guidance of Kancho Creton he set up the Dunoon club.
