Welcome to Shu Ho Jujitsu and Iaido


We are a friendly, highly experienced self defence club established in 1979, based within local communities in South London and Kent (location buttons above).


Adult and children beginners are welcome to start anytime in our Jujitsu self-defence classes, and there is nothing to pay for the first month - that's up to 20+ free lessons - so why not give it a try?


We teach Jujitsu and Iaido in separate classes.



Jujitsu (also known as 'Jiu Jitsu' and 'Ju Jitsu')

Jujitsu is an excellent all-round form of self defence. Anyone can practice it, regardless of their age or physical abilities.

It is the grandfather of Japanese martial arts and is a key component in MMA and UFC. It is clearly visible in other arts such as Judo and Aikido.




Iaido is the traditional art of Japanese swordsmanship practised by Samurai centuries ago. The Iaido classes are suitable for anyone aged 16 years and over, and the first lesson is free.


Please take a look around our website to learn more about Jujitsu, Iaido, and our club; and feel free to get in touch if you have any more questions or want more information.
