Cranbrook Karate Jutsu Kai - Our History

Cranbrook Karate club was founded in the late 1970s by Sempai Clive Nickols, then in the late 1980’s it was taken over by Sempai Nigle Borne until the present instructor Sensei Simon Chaplin (4th Dan) took over in 1999, over the years the club has found itself at different venues around Cranbrook, ending at the primary school in carriers road, where it has been for a number of years

Over the years the club has had many successes at competitions winning a large number of medals.

Sensei Simon began training in 1994 under the instruction of Shihan John Wilson (7th Dan) and obtained his 1st Dan in 2001, his 2nd Dan in 2005 and then in 2012 he passed his third Dan grading. Over the years Sensei Simon has taken part in many competitions winning Gold, Silver and Bronze medals, he has also won spirited fighter award twice, once at the Sussex tournament and then some years later at the Ashford International tournament, but has now retired from competition fighting. He continues to teach, heading the Cranbrook Dojo and to train with Shihan John on a Thursday at Northiam.

Sensei Simon has always encouraged his students to be the best they can and to always strive to improve in every area of there training and to encourage each other at all times.
