You've just taken the first step to developing yourself physically, mentally and if you want to spiritually.
Through JuJitsu you can develop greater self confidence and self control, caring and respect for others, discipline, increased fitness, awareness and agility, how to relax in stressful situations, self defence skills, how to overcome your fears, friendship and so much more.
JuJitsu will teach you self defence but more importantly it will develop character, so if confronted in a hostile situation you have the confidence to defuse the situation in a non-violent manner.
Remember... You do not have to be the best in the world, but be the best that you can be!!!
For the competitive JuJitsuka competitions are available throughout the year, with the top competitors having the chance to join the British JuJitsu Squad and represent Britain at the world championships.
With us you will also learn Kobudo the study of Japanese weapons and Iaido the way of the sword. All classes are a blended combination of JuJitsu, Kobudo and other self defence techniques. Our techniques are taken from traditional and modern systems.
Studying JuJitsu you will learn striking, kicking, evasion, throwing, joint locks, strangles and chokes, plus use and defence against weapons and much more, even defence against hair pulls. Many of the locking technique used by the police and prison guards are taken from JuJitsu, and because of its nature JuJitsu is always adapting to changing circumstances.
As with most martial arts, anyone who learns JuJitsu is taught that violence is the last resort and should not be used unless being attacked, and even then the attacker's limitations should be considered, as a court would not look lightly on a person seriously harming an attacker who could be easily subdued.
Yes.. I realise it would be their own fault for attacking you but the law is the law.
The name JuJitsu, when translated literarily, does not give justice to a fighting system which was originally designed to maim or kill an opponent. The word 'Ju' means gentleness, pliable or flexibility, 'Jitsu' means method or art giving us "the Gentle Art" which anyone who practices JuJitsu will tell you, it can hurt!!
The gentleness comes from using your opponent's strength and movement against them. The old Japanese schools (ryu) of JuJitsu used the principal "Ju yoko go o sei suru" which means flexibility masters hardness or in yielding there is strength. This means a person of limited strength can overcome a much larger attacker, which for modern times makes JuJitsu an excellent self defence system for men, women and children.
