Jiu Jitsu is a Japanese martial art that focuses on using an opponent's power against them, employing a mixture of strikes, joint locks and throws. Our style, Shorinji Kan, is designed for practical defence in the modern world, from unwanted harassment to armed physical assault. The techniques we teach can be used by anyone: male or female, large or small. We welcome everyone to our sessions, including non-students, regardless of fitness or experience.
