Shihan Cliff Bolt 6th Dan opened the first club in Hailsham at the Groveland school in November 1993 as a Sempai 2nd Dan. Apart from the original Groveland’s school being replaced with a new building in the late 1990’s the Hailsham venue has not changed. Still under the guidance and tuition of Shihan Cliff Bolt Eastbourne & Hailsham Karate Jutsu Kai continues to go from strength to strength.
Shihan Cliff trained hard to become a proficient martial artist. Partaking in multiple national and international tournaments including the: London and British Open Knockdown and of course many of Karate Jutsu Kai’s own competitions.
Today, Shihan Cliff continues to strive for the perfection and development of this art form. On his quest, the students of the Eastbourne & Hailsham Dojo benefits from his ability, passion and commitment in teaching and practicing the true principles of karate and his continued life study of Karate Jutsu Kai under the leadership of Kaicho Bernard Creton.
Today it is the students of the club that compete in all of the association’s tournaments in addition to the WIBK Championships. Their success is a glowing testament to the dedication and teaching abilities of Shihan Cliff.
