The Ju Dachi Martial Arts Association is a CIC (Comunity Interest Company) run by the chief instructor Sensei Jonathan Bolt who is the Director of the company, with his wife Sensei Patricia as a share holder. Together they run the association assisted by fantastic team of volunteers who are always keen to help. Our Karate school is committed to upholding the true meaning and traditions of traditional Karate Do. We pride ourselves that our students are taught to a very high standard in a strict but fair fashion. A large percentage of our students have been training with us for over 7 years or more. The guidance and support our students recieve are second to none. We always strive to achieve perfection of all aspects of Karate Do. Sensei Jon started training at the age of 10 and now 25 years later is passing his valuable knowledge on to others. Also attending various training seminars whenever he can in between his very busy schedule. Over the years we have developed a complex syllabus that continually challenges students, while increasing their knowledge of Karate Do in bite size pieces. Students are pushed hard and are expected to continuously practice at home, which helps the student understand the fundamentals and meaning of the various techniques. We don’t just focus on the syllabus which is required for exams, but also in how to apply these techniques in a real life situation.
