Nelson Street Dojo
Hontai Yoshin Ryu Jujutsu is an highly effective fighting method with both unarmed and armed techniques that have survived the bloody battlefields of feudal Japan and continued developing into the modern era. In an increasingly violent modern society we believe that it is important to teach our students effective self defence techniques from the beginning stages of their training, and with this in mind our membership is also open to individuals our groups that are of good character.
We are members of Hontai Yoshin Ryu in Nishinomiya Japan, which is recognised by the Japanese Government's classical martial arts association Nihon Kobudo Kyokai, and also members of the UK branch of Hontai Yoshin Ryu.
We specialise in teaching effective self defense, and have a specialized martial artists gym featuring a 108m2 matted area, striking bags and pad, a large range of weight training equipment and separate changing rooms and showers. Our dojo is also available for rental, it is currently also used by groups practicing Muay Thai and Dance.
Having trained in Karate and other martial arts for 20 years and achieved 2nd Dan black belt, I am now training in Hontai Yoshin Ryu Ju-Jutsu. I have trained nearly 3 year and have found it a truly skilful martial art to study ,second to none I have trained in for practical application in real situations. Training atmosphere is in a relaxed and friendly manner, for beginner or experienced martial artists alike , with plenty of training times available in the week to fit around my busy schedule. Unlike many modern sport arts ,this a true Japanese martial art dating back to battlefield times and the year 1635AD, thus has been practised in real combat. situations. A+++++ Highly recommended

The school first came to my attention when I was looking online for a Jujutsu school in the Carlisle area. I was struck by how little was available locally. I wanted my 5 year old daughter to get a basic grounding in being able to defend herself and to learn about respect from people other than just her family members. From day one she was made to feel welcome and quickly became very keen on her weekly lesson at Jujutsu. I was so impressed that I decided to sign up myself and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience thus far. The other students are friendly, welcoming and helpful. A thoroughly nice bunch of people to be around. I would recommend this school to anyone who is looking to teach their children discipline and self respect and to develop their own self confidence. The facilities are top notch and the costs are very reasonable. Highly recommended as far as I am concerned.

This is the only club in the north of England that teaches an authentic form of kobudo. It is professionally run by someone who has a direct link to the school in Japan and so about 400 years of tradition. This mixed with the extensive practical experience available makes this club perfect for both, beginners and those who have trained for many years, those interested in weapons work or just hand to hand combat.
