About the ShinBudo Kai 


In 1997, Mr Narker and some of his close associates, began to think about forming a New Budo Organisation due to the large amount of enquiries from like-minded Martial Artists who were in general, dissatisfied with existing groups and, who wanted to belong to a progressive, yet traditional oriented Organisation.

Narker Sensei began to contact his friends, seeking to gather Instructors who could develop the Structure of the New group. In August 1998, the Shin Budo Kai (New Martial Arts Association) was born, with supporters throughout South Africa and overseas.

Currently, most of the members are practising karateka, but one TaeKwonDo group is also involved.
