    well to be very brief, zen do kai incorporates a lot of the muay thai boxing system, as Bob Jones saw how devastating it was whilst on his travels through asia before he founded zen do kai.

    Default Zen Do Kai, a Mixed Martial Art.

    Zen Do Kai Freestyle Karate and Kickboxing is a Mixed Martial Art that has its roots in traditional Japanese Karate. It is heavily influenced by Muay Thai kickboxing and also incorporates techniques from other forms of martial arts.

    Essentially Zen Do Kai is similar in philosophy to Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do. An amalgam of the most effective elements of many fighting styles, but the roots of Zen Do Kai are in Karate, rather than Chinese Gung Fu where Bruce Lee's roots lie.

    Zen Do Kai practitioners learn the best, most effective techniques from many different styles of martial arts making Zen Do Kai a complete and very effective system of self defence. It incorporates traditional karate forms and techniques alongside modern self defense systems.

    Zen Do Kai Freestyle Karate defies description as it is always evolving, ever changing, constantly adapting to the modern world. It began as a Karate school, but has become so much more. ZDK takes many of its fighting techniques from Muay Thai Kickboxing, but also borrows self defence techniques from Aikido, Jujutsui, Judo, Taekwondo, Kung Fu, Western Boxing and anything and everything that works.
    The Beauty of the beast is that every person that comes to Zen Do Kai, brings with them their own influences. ZDK grows with every generation into a more and more relevant and effective system of self defence.

    Karate is a traditional Art form where as Zen Do Kai is classed as a freestyle. I got my Shodan in ZDK and it was/is a great style
