Thirty years of existence for the Kihonkai Dojo bears testament to the founder, owner and chief instructor, Sensei Stevie Mason. He is without doubt the epitome of what being a true Sensei entails, a karateka that set the example by being a training man, a Budoka, a man who understands discipline but at the same time compassion and a Karateka with an outstanding technical knowledge of Karate-do. Scotland can be proud of Stevie Mason as KWF are and as I am to have the privilege to call him friend
For quite some time we have been looking for a sport to do as a family. Kihonkai Karate Academy has fulfilled that and more. We were introduced to it through my son attending after school club. He loved it so much that in a short time he joined the club. Following on from my son, my daughter joined and then myself and my husband. I was rather wary that I was to old at 40 to be learning a new sport. How wrong was I!! The classes are for all fitness levels and ability levels. We were welcomed with open arms! I can't express how great it is to learn with your children. Sensei Stevie is a wonderful teacher. He has patience and a great attribute of making everyone feel that they are capable. I love the confidence it has given my kids. I love that the classes give me ME time and a chance to de stress from my working day. We train 3 times a week together and it is quality family time!! If you have ever thought about it then why NOT come and try it. You won't regret it
