An ancient art for the modern day


Ju Jitsu is a Japanese martial art that was developed hundreds of years ago. Originally used by the samurai to defeat their opponents in battle, it has evolved and been refined into an extremely effective self defence system, used by police and armed forces around the world.


The translation from Japanese is “flexible art” which refers to the way it doesn’t meet force with force. Instead we use redirection and movement to defeat a stronger attacker. Success isn’t solely dependent on size, but very much on technique, making this an art suitable for all types of ability, male or female, large or small, young or not so young.


Over the years many combat systems have evolved from Ju Jitsu, the most well known of these being that devised by the very well known Ju Jitsu master, Master Jigoro Kano (1860 –1938) who took the martial side of Ju Jitsu out and founded a competition/sport orientated style which he called Judo. Other styles include Aikido and some styles of Karate.

  • Escapes from grabs
