Pinda Kai Do was originated and established by Master Franck K. Mpinda in 1996 and became a charity in 2004, with the intention of supporting local people who cannot afford coached sports, and people from a disadvantaged background.
Pinda Kai Do is a sophisticated form of martial art which combines information, education and self-discipline. Pinda Kai Do is a martial art with feeling and emotion and is different from other martial arts which can suggest the use of excess force to eliminate the opponent. In Pinda Kai Do, the student warns the opponent of his martial art knowledge, thus giving the options of retreat or attack. If a fight takes place the Pinda Kai Do student will react to control the situation physically using reasonable force and act with compassion in the case of an opponent’s injury. This is why Pinda Kai Do is called a martial art with feeling.
