Jitsu is a progressive martial art that offers a means of personal and physical development, as well as an effective system of self-defence. Regular training can help to improve strength, fitness, flexibility, co-ordination and posture. Moreover, most people find over time that Jitsu improves their self-esteem and self-confidence. Advanced training levels are highly challenging and foster exceptional levels of physical and mental control. Jitsu training is also great fun and a fantastic way to meet new friends. Most clubs within The Jitsu Foundation offer a vibrant social life out of club training, with events organised throughout the year.
