Probably not cos it's only in Australia and New Zealand but it's like 1/3 muay thai 1/3 grappling and 1/3 old style stuff from karate and stuff like that just wanting too know you thoughts on it if you have heard of it.

Yeah, 'twas my first martial art if i remember correctly. I did it for about 2.5 years, and it was very kickboxeresque. I did an ungraded version of it under my brother. Hmm, if i ever come across a zendokai school i might join up again.

Liam pretty much summed it up in his post up the top. It's a VERY hardcore style and it seems to try and cover every aspect of fighting, not just one. It's called zendokai KARATE but it's very different form other forms of karate i've ever seen. I have a mate who did something that he thought was similar, called Zen Chi Ryu, but i don't think it was quite a grapply as zendokai.

Good on ya... zendokai's one of the only forms of 'karate' i like... Unfortunately u still have to do kata in it - but kata IS the heart of karate.
