Jujutsu: The Samurai Art of Self Defence

Jujutsu is known world wide as a grappling art. Originally though it was the unarmed combat art of the commoner to defend against unruly Samurai. In our school we teach three forms of Jujutusu all rolled into a single curriculum. 

The first of these schools is Takagi Yoshin Ryu. The name of the school translates as a willow tree’s spirit bending itself with the pressure. It is this feeling, like aikido, that allows the Takagi Yoshin Ryu practitioner to use their opponent’s energy against them. However, unlike Aikido or Judo, the throws and locks are performed in a way that does not allow the opponent to ukemi (roll/escape), making the techniques much more deverstating to an attacker.

The second school of Jujutsu that we teach is Seishin Fudo Ryu. This School which dates from the 16th century contains many special throws and take downs.

The last school that makes up our Jujutsu Curriculum is Asayama Ichiden Ryu. This school specialises in very painful joint locks, escapes  and controls.

Together these three schools make up a devastating method of self defence and control package of martial arts that not only honestly reflect the arts of Jujutsu of the 17th and 18th centuries in Edo Period Japan but are totally relevant to self defence in the modern world to the 21st century
