CJS Defence is run voluntarily as a community group with the intention of helping each student maximise their potential. All proceeds collected go into the running of the club with no payment being taken for instruction of the class or any other club related matters.
Shotokan Karate-Do is the main style of discipline with a heavy focus on kata. This is the main practice during our weekly class. However, the club heavily focuses on street defence and awareness promoting personal safety and self-confidence in real life situations as well as in the dojo. Shotokan Karate-Do, generates a continuing development of the self, building the mind and the body which begin to truly work in motion with each other when you dedicate yourself to the practice of the art. Following the Do approach, it must always be done in conjunction with a positive attitude and a peaceful approach. Never should martial arts be used in situations for the personal benefit of an individual beyond that of protection and training, it is only used as a last resort. Although Karate-Do does prepare the mind and the body for that last resort, to bring the real world into context the syllabus has incorporated Karate Justu into it’s teachings. This is the street defence element where we practice in our day-to-day clothing and look at the practical application of kata. For this purpose the club has written its own syllabus to systematically include both elements of Karate. The syllabus has been peer reviewed and approved by the British Martial Arts and Boxing Association.
