Want to learn a practical martial art that doesn’t require superhuman strength and bottomless pockets?

At City Jitsu Club, we’ll teach you how to defend yourself against unarmed and armed attackers. And Jitsu’s other benefits include being fun, good exercise and even improving your confidence.

Beginners are always welcome. We train at City University, Islington, which is within easy reach of buses, trains and London Underground.

Your first session is free and you’ll only need to wear loose clothing (no special suit). If you want to learn more, contact us or turn up!

UPDATE: At the moment, our venue is closed, undergoing renovation, but leave your details and we'll get back to you when we have a new venue or the current one is reopened. In the meantime, Sensei Shepherd will be teaching at Westminster Jitsu Club, Hugh Cubitt Centre - 48 Collier Street, London N1 9QZ, on Mondays 7pm-9pm and Wednesdays 8pm-10pm:
