Hando Jikishin Senior Ju Jitsu Clubs have been running since 1979 and have built a solid reputation for the quality of training and the discipline of the students.
The Senior Classes are very flexible, with Self Defence, Competitive Sparring & Groundfighting, Random Attacks and Kata practiced regularly, in addition to the usual Syllabus work required to attain each grading. We are open to male and female students, and young people (usually over 14), who are encouraged to join the senior class in order to make improvements in their technique.
In order to progress a student must show regular attendance, train diligently, obey the Club and Association rules, and perform the techniques taught in a safe and controlled manner.
We have a great mix of men & women, of all ability. The club is eclectic, and in addition to the usual Ju Jitsu techniques, we also utilise techniques from from boxing, wrestling, karate, MMA & Muay Thai - this give all students something to work with.
Located at Harlow in Essex the clubs appeal to a wide range of young people from 14 to 70 years old.
