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 their 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 those physical skills in the first instance, so learning with us is more than just the physical skills. It is also about developing the personal skills in tandem so that the individual grows 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.
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. While some modern MMA styles may be classified as ‘sport’, Gendai Jujutsu is non-competitive and designed for life outside a training hall.
