jado kuin do harpenden & redbourn

Confident Kidz class

I run the Jado Kuin Do clubs for children and adults in Harpenden & Redbourn. I have trained in this fantastic martial art since 2007 and have been an instructor in St Albans & Harpenden for 12 years. I am a 3rd degree black belt and Sifu.

We are supported by two excellent assistant instructors, Laurie Owen-Ward (2nd degree black belt) and Drew McKenzie (1st degree black belt).

The club is very friendly and we welcome anyone to try us out with a free taster session. Martial Arts such as Jado can provide an interesting pathway to fitness, strength, balance and coordination that you might not have considered before. It’s also excellent for developing confidence in both children and adults. The whole Jado organisation has undertaken the necessary work to become Safeguarding Code approved and all instructors and assistants are DBS registered.

Our kung fu based martial art is suitable for children and adults regardless of previous experience.
