Local Martial arts club celebrates success with additional class

by Editor

Kokoro Ju-Jitsu has launched new Thursday night classes in Lowton for both juniors and adults, after the success of their Monday sessions caused extra demand.

The club was established in 2017 by Sensei Ian Charlson and Sensei Steven Boughton; who each have over 30 years’ experience in Atemi Ju-Jitsu; and is located within Lowton Community Hub.

Combining traditional martial arts and self-defence techniques, they strive to create well rounded respectful martial artists, build confidence in their students and reach and empower as many people as possible with basic self-defence skills.

Offering separate adult and junior classes which range from learning self defence techniques and throws to traditional Japanese weapon katas or more competition style back-to-back and sport Ju-Jitsu. They say they pride themselves on creating a relaxed and comfortable environment so all students can excel and achieve their goals.

Sensei Ian and Sensei Steve demonstrate some of the techniques

Sensei Ian Charlson, Chief Instructor at Kokoro Ju-Jitsu, said: “At Kokoro we strongly believe that everyone should have the skills needed to defend themselves if necessary. It’s important to us that we pass on our knowledge to the wider community, our new class will enable us to do that. The extra junior and senior classes will enable us to take on more students and grow our club further.”

And Sensei Steven Boughton, Chief Instructor at Kokoro Ju-Jitsu, added: “For the last few years the dojo (training room) where we have our classes has been undergoing huge changes to become a state of the art martial art centre, so we jumped at the opportunity to launch an extra day at this incredible venue. We’ve got a lot of things planned for 2024, including relaunching our community self defence course, our new class is just the start of the exciting things to come.
