Website Improvements

New features have been added to the website to improve our communication to new potential prospects as well as our own students. To take advantage of this feature simply login to your user account and you will see a speech bubble appear. Click on the speech bubble and if available you can speak directly with myself. If offline then simply leave a message. You can still email me directly through the contact form. Don’t forget we have now launched a facebook group exclusively for our students so you can communicate with each other directly.

New Training Material

Very shortly new online training material will be available which can be accessed by logging on to your user account. Some of the new material will be free of charge. However to gain access to the exclusive content there will be an additional small monthly charge. A series of training videos, motivational videos, training music and ebooks will be some of the goodies on offer with free samples. A brand new self defence syllabus will also be available to download.

Instructor Training

The Ju Dachi Martial Arts Ltd has introduced fantastic training material via Nest Management and Educare. All our trainee and certified instructors will have completed this course, to maintain the highest possible standard in safe guarding adults and children. So as a parent you can be rest assured that your child is being taught by highly competent educated instructors for your peace of mind.

Grading Times

Remember that Karate starts and finishes with RESPECT from the moment a student enters the Do Jo. Remember to follow our club’s protocol at all times, arrive promptly, bow when entering and leaving the Do Jo, when called by an instructor, etc. Failure to do so, may result in student not passing the exam. If you don’t have acopy of our club’s protocol yet, please ask.

Please, remember to bring your JKA licence book or you will not be able grade. If you do not have a license book you must inform us immediately.

The grading will start promptly at 15:00 and will finnish around 17:00

The results and awards ceremony will be onthe same day where students will receive a signed certificate and their belt upon successfully passing their grading/exam.

Safe Guarding Code

The Ju Dachi Martial Arts Ltd is proud to announce we were one of the first clubs in the country to have been awarded the Safe Guarding Code In Martial Arts from Sport England. A lot of hard work went into achieving this status. Sensei Jon had to undergo many hours of training and had to produce a safe guarding policy for children and a safe guarding policy for adults which can be viewed on our website.
