Jitsu is a martial art for Juniors & Adults…

If you are looking for a Martial Art that will give you the skills and ability to defend yourself then you have come to the right place!
Crowborough Jitsu club uses techniques based on the principal of using an attacker’s energy and balance to their own demise.  Jitsu comprises a system of throws, joint locks and strikes to defend yourself in aggressive situations,  ranging from unwanted harassment to armed physical assault. As strength or size isn’t a factor in our style Jitsu is designed to be for all, men women & children.

Jitsu is a great way to build your confidence, make friends, get fit & learn to defend yourself.

We have two sessions a week for juniors and two sessions a week for seniors

Our not for profit club has been running for over fifteen years and we are affiliated to The Jitsu Foundation (TJF Ltd) and the British Ju-Jitsu Association [GB].
