"Zantykes" is exclusive to Zanshin Karate Cymru. It has been devised to introduce karate to the very young. The instructors use the copyright "Zanbadges" system to encourage the children to progress at their own pace.
Shukokai Karate is famed for its powerful techniques. It derived from one of the original styles of karate called Shito Ryu.
Shukokai was devised by Sensei Chojiro Tani and developed further by Sensei Shigeru Kimura.
Zanshin Karate Cymru teaches traditional karate and has never seen the need to diversify to other styles and fads. Keeping traditional values and sticking to tried and tested karate means that students aren't brainwashed with the "new thing" going round.
