Our modern jujutsu style is especially good for “street” self-defence.
Because that’s what it is designed for.
But we believe that a whole martial artist is greater than the sum of the parts.
What does that mean?
The techniques we teach are specifically designed to enable students to protect themselves within a short time.
Even so, it’s better not to be in a circumstance requiring physical skills in the first place. We make sure that our students also learn how to to prevent or reduce conflict using interpersonal skills. The aim is to develop the individual into an independent, caring and well-rounded person.
A complete system of self-defence
By including personal development skills in the syllabus alongside the technical, our students–the young ones included!–are encouraged to take ownership of their own progress. It also means having healthy relationships with others.
Is Gendai Jujutsu a Mixed Martial Art (MMA)?
Technically, our style is jujutsu, however because the foundations of Gendai Jujutsu have their origins in different styles of martial arts, it may be described as a ‘mixed’ style.
However, while some modern MMA styles may be classified as ‘sport’, Gendai Jujutsu is non-competitive and designed for life outside a training hall.
