Sangenkai UK

Sangenkai UK is the British element of the Sangenkai, an international group of affiliated martial artists and bodywork practitioners who study the internal power training methods taught by Dan Harden. Because Dan’s work is applicable to a great many disciplines, Sangenkai affiliates include students and teachers of aikido, Daito ryu, t’ai chi ch’uan, judo, kenjutsu, yoga, dance and many other physical practices.

The Sangenkai bodywork method is based on traditional martial arts training from Japan, China and India, and focuses on generating stability and power in a dynamically relaxed body.

More information about the method is available on Dan’s own website, Bodywork Seminars.
