Although jujitsu does involve the study and use of traditional weapons, it is more commonly perceived as an un-armed defensive art. Encompassing all the combat ranges, close in, stand up and on the ground. It has been used for decades very successfully by competitors in no-holds barred competitions, so much so, that many non jujitsu competitors now supplement their regular training with jujitsu or judo like techniques.
It takes years of hard training to earn a black belt with us. Juniors can grade but then must re-grade at senior level. We also follow the traditional system regarding 'dan grades' and the minimum number of years between grades. So, if you're after a quickie black belt, then we suggest you look elsewhere!
