Ishin Ryu Headquarters


Set within the grounds of Kevin Pell Hanshi’s private 17th century residence, the Honbu Dojo and its offices are ideally located within the picturesque village of Caston, Norfolk.

Our purpose built traditional Japanese Dojo is set within an acre of landscaped gardens registered with the Japanese Garden Society and offers luxurious facilities for the individual, groups or corporate clients, with the added opportunity to train to the highest standards under the personal tuition of Kevin Pell Hanshi and his team of black belts.

Visitors to our headquarters are welcome to stay within Pell Hanshi’s private residence, offering five double guestrooms and bathrooms set within a peaceful rural setting and a stone’s throw away from two fine pubs serving a vast array of local cuisine.

Induction courses for beginners are held throughout the year, with Women’s self-defence classes, specialist training and private tuition readily available during the day (9am – 5pm) and at weekends, by prior arrangement.
