Well... It's been a while coming but we are finally getting back up and running! Classes resume as of Friday 16th September 2022!
To start with the class will only be an hour long and will cover both Ju Jitsu and Iaido. I will be looking to expand this to a two hour class but it will depend on interest.
If you've trained with us before and want to get back into it feel free to come on by and if you've never trained in a martial art before now would be a perfect time to give it a go!
Ju Jitsu is a Japanese martial art which was developed by the Samurai for use in battle. The name "Ju-Jitsu" translates from Japanese as "gentle skill" or "gentle art" and is most likely to be a reference to practitioners yielding to an aggressors attack before redirecting their force and using it against them.
Unlike some other martial arts Ju Jitsu does not focus on any one element of combat. A Ju Jitsu student (Ju Jitsuka) studies striking, throwing, grappling, locking and groundwork techniques.
Many of these techniques are extremely dangerous and should only be practised in a proper class under the supervision of a qualified instructor (Sensei).
