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.

Classes are available to start for the young through to the more senior generation.

The club welcomes all walks of life, so feel free to come on in. If there is any uncertainty, spectating is always welcome to clear the mind.

Did we mention the first 2 sessions are 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. #



It's very enjoyable and you really feel a sense of achievement at the end of the session #
