Chris Kent has been teaching in Brighton since 1975. He became known in Sussex for quality instruction in both Wado Ryu Style Karate and Full Contact Kickboxing.

As the groups of children and adults being taught expanded, it became necessary to open a full time dojo. In 1982 the Lewes Road dojo was opened and has continued there ever since.
