Karate is one of the most efficient and effective self-defense systems ever developed. Initially to satisfy an ancient need for self-preservation, if properly taught by qualified instructors, karate can significantly increase your defensive skills and may one day save your life.
The need for self defense comes from many quarters and no more so than in todays increasingly violent society, when confronted it is natural to feel fear. With training you will have the ability to stand up for and defend yourself on both a physical and mental level. Whether your 16 or 60, we can help you be more prepared to defend yourself against an attacker. Children and adults alike can learn to beat the bully at their own game, holding their head up high and facing each day with less fear.
Chojinkai Karate (pronounced Cho-jin-Kai) is the name of the Wado-Ryu based style of Karate founded in 1974 by our President & Chief Instructor Doug James 8th Dan. From there it has gone from strength to strength to satisfy the demand for high quality Martial Arts tuition in Cumbria and the North of England. There are also very successful Clubs in Brampton, Cockermouth, Egremont, Haltwhistle, Hexham, Kendal, Newcastle, Workington and Whitehaven. The year 2014 saw the club proudly celebrate its 40th anniversary.

The Chojinkai style of karate practised by the 400 strong membership who make up the Chojinkai Group is Wado Ryu Karate based, as taught by its Chief Instructor Sensei Doug James 8th Dan WKF.
