Filmed in Cardiff in 2017 at the Martial Arts Studies Research Network's annual conference in partnership with Cardiff University and Professor Paul Bowman
We're pleased to announce a new audio series from our channel consultant Dr George Jennings has now started. You can hear episode 1 on the dedicated sow page here or go direct to Sound cloud below
We caught up again with Dr George Jennings in the park, where he gives his views on what to think about when looking for a place to start your martial arts life.
Martial Arts as part of a healthy active life? This connects to a wider theme being picked up by a new project being set-up now that will see DoJoTV working with scholars at Cardiff Metropolitan University.

A simple question, but as ever with something as practically and culturally diverse is not that easy to answer.
We asked our channel consultant, Dr George Jennings from Cardiff Metropolitan University to tackle it, while on a trek round a Cardiff city centre park.
Learn more about George here and tune in next time for the follow on episode 'Where should you start with martial arts?'
We asked 'what drew you to martial arts?' and 'what keeps you training?' to members of the Welsh Karate Union during one of their summer training sessions.
These recordings were made to complement a new short video series filmed at Cardiff University in July 2017, Part 1 can be seen below;

To complement our short film series that has started with Part 1. "Why Martial Arts?" (featured on our home page), filmed at Cardiff University in July, we're releasing a short audio series from the perspective of members of martial arts clubs. We had the pleasure of spending time with the Welsh Karate Union over the last few weeks. Below is a sample of what's to come;
What draws you to martial arts?
That was where we started from when interviewing attendees at the Martial Arts Studies Research Network conference in July 2017. We selected a range of responses to be the first film in a short series that covers these intimate conversations held at Cardiff University in Cardiff, UK. You can watch Part 1 now;
Inbetween interviews, we managed to attend some of the conference activities. One in particular was facilitated by Daniel Mroz and Damon Honeycutt. An enjoyable 'hands on' session indeed, as you can get a feel of by the photo below!
At the end of the session, we asked Daniel and Damon to speak to us about their collaborative research project. You can hear them talk about it using the audio player below.
Hope you enjoyed all that. Stay tuned for more in the film series and other film and audio projects. Want to know more? email: email@example.com
Hello - we're back!
We spent quite some time in 2016 in research mode including lots of experiments. That was a valuable experience and has helped us define where this platform is going over the next 2-3 years.
This is not a long ramble about this or that. We thought we'd just return with a revised website, some new content and let you browse through some of the things coming up and projects we're involved in, which you can see under the "Short Documentaries" and "Cardiff University" menu tabs.
More behind the scenes activity and investment is being made that draws on what happened last year. More details will appear in this blog throughout the year on this, as well as details on various filming projects as they develop.
That's it for now :)
