Zen Do Kai Karate

Monday and Tuesday 7.30pm - 8.45pm

Zen Do Kai (ZDK) literally translates to ‘the best of everything in progression’. Founded by Soke Bob Jones in 1970, this style prides itself on only teaching what works. This style was originally created to cater for those who worked in the security industry, bouncing the doors and being the bodyguards to the stars. However, it has since developed into a dynamic martial art with influences from Muay Thai, Aikido, BJJ and other arts.


At Purcell Dojos, we regularly have senior ranks in ZDK drop by to train and learn from us, as well as give the odd piece of extra information to add to our training! ZDK truly is an all encompassing martial art, cover applications, forms, drills, sparring and weaponry. The lessons learnt in any ZDK class can quickly and easily be adapted to a range of situations, not just in self defence but also in life.


Renshi Ross Purcell has been training in ZDK for over 20 years and has travelled all over the world, among some of the top martial artists in the world, to further his knowledge.
