The Gentle Art
Traditional ju-jitsu, kobudo and bartitsu.
"Jū" can be translated to mean "gentle, soft, supple, flexible, pliable, or yielding." "Jutsu" can be translated to mean "art" or "technique" and represents manipulating the opponent's force against them rather than confronting it with one's own force. Practitioners learn methods for neutralising an enemy through pins, joint locks, and throws.
On Wednesdays 6.30pm till 7.30pm both adults and juniors (Over 5 yrs) can learn traditional self defence techniques in a safe and friendly environment with Sensei Nigel Tate.
Students can then continue to train till 8.30 pm and learn a multitude of weapons including Samurai sword, nunchuka, tonfa, sai, bo staff, jo staff and many more at Kobudo.
Why not learn to fight with walking sticks and swagger sticks in the martial art used by "Sherlock Holmes" in the original stories by Arthur Conan Doyle, Bartitsu, which can also be learned within the club.
