Dojo is a school that foremost places in high regard
the importance of training to excellence and upholding
the precepts of Budo (Martial Ways) - we view our martial
arts as a journey through life as opposed to a sport.
Although we treat our art in this way we do not exclude
ourselves from competing in tournaments as we believe
can learn something new from every faction of sport
which aids in our own development. In our school, tournaments
are not done for the purpose of attaining medals to
feed the ego (so to speak), but instead they are done
to aid in the development of the Individual in challenging
themselves to new heights and levels in addition to
fulfilling our responsibility by representing the University
at National and International level.
The Brunel Squad once again proved their abilities walking away with 14 medals, 6 of which were Gold at the 2010 BUCS Championships.
They are currently the best University Kata Team in the United Kingdom (2010). Four members represented at the European University Championships and two represented at the World University championships.
