What are you waiting for?

Where we started:

Kojo was opened up in 1986 by Sensei Julius George, 5th Dan, which has operated at Bushmead Community Centre for over 20 years.

It teaches traditional Shotokan Karate under the Bukonkai Karate International association, we have seen many people thrive over the years and progress to the stage of 1st Dan, or black belt to some.

Since Sensei George moved to France in 2014 the club is now run by his student Senpai Kieran Broderick, 2nd Dan.

Open to all from age 7 onwards

We teach ranging from age 7 with no upper age limit.

The club welcomes anyone from all walks of life, so if you have thought of starting self defence then feel free to come on by. If you wish to watch, that is more than welcome. Should you choose to take part, the first lesson is always free.

Hard working class. It’s not massive which makes it’s more one to one. And they always push us to do the best we can. It's great fun. #
