What is Ju-jitsu ?

Developed in Japan, Ju-Jitsu is a form of martial arts for defeating an opponent without the use of a weapon.
The name translates as “flexible art”, which reflects its emphasis on manipulating an opponent’s own strength against them.

With an emphasis on a wide range of throwing, joint manipulation, blocking and striking techniques and weapon work, the Bushido academy style of Ju-Jitsu has been developed specifically to give you the confidence to defend yourself in the modern world. Ju-jitsu techniques are utilised by police and armed forces worldwide, which is testament to the efficiency of this ancient martial art.
