Club History
Cowbridge Karate was originally formed in 1985 by Robert Bridle and was a member of the British Jutsu Renmei Karate Association led by Bernard Creton.
 
Following a split from Jutsu Renmei, Welsh Karate Jutsu Kai was formed and led by Lee Costa. Cowbridge Karate remained a member of WKJK for over 10 years.
 
In 1996 whilst still under the leadership of Robert Bridle the club became its own organisation and Cowbridge Karate Jutsu Kai was formed.  Robert Bridle left the organisation in 2003 and Dave Jones was appointed Chief Instructor. In 2015 Dave Jones appointed Roger Nevens as Chief Instructor.
 
To date, the organisation has produced in excess of 60 Black Belts , including 9 karateka who attained grades of 3rd Dan or above. CKJK has also enjoyed much success in local and regional kumite and kata tournaments.
 
Cowbridge Karate is a member of the Karate Wales governing body.
