Kukri- The DNA of Kukri Sports dates back to 1979, when the British Army Gurkhas and RAF joined together to create a stronger rugby club, the Flying Kukris.

In 1999, Kukri were inspired by and created with the same values as that of the Army and RAF soldiers in the Flying Kukris. These being: quality, passion, diversity, professionalism and teamwork.
