Who we are...
JuJutsu, is a collective name for Japanese martial art styles including unarmed and armed techniques. Jujutsu evolved among the samurai of feudal Japan as a method for efficiently defeating an opponent on the battlefield.
The most efficient methods of striking, holds, strangles, chokes, breaks, pins, joint locks, and throws are used to neutralize an enemy, as well as a good understanding of nerve and pressure point techniques. Traditional weapons are also a major part of the vast syllabus, providing the student with discipline and a traditional understanding of the arts origins and culture.
These techniques were developed around the principle of using an attacker's energy against them, rather than directly opposing an enemy, using skill and understanding to defeat an opponent rather than strength.
Jujutsu techniques have been the basis for many military unarmed combat techniques (including British/US/Russian special forces and SO1 police units) for many years.
The club is open to both sexes and ages over 16. Learning jujutsu can increase and develop a student's awareness, confidence and fitness, as well as being ideal for self defence.
