Bushey Ju Jitsu Club

Bushey Ju Jitsu Club

Welcome to the Bushey Ju Jitsu Club

Founded on the 4th October 1999 by Kevin Pell Sensei, the Bushey Grove Dojo was an immediate success attracting children and adults from the Bushey, Garston and Watford areas. The classes are taught by Del Shannon Sensei, Assistant National Coach For Adult Training.

The Bushey Grove Dojo boasts one of the largest children's classes within the organisation from the age of 4 to 13 and continues to grow monthly. Lessons are structured so that the children have a warm up session using team games followed by step by step instruction on self-defence techniques from our syllabus.

We also have classes for teenagers aged 13-16yrs in our Intermediate group. Our teenagers train along side the adults in preparation before moving up to the adult group. Intermediates follow the same syllabus as the Adult class and their gradings also have the same structure, aimed at demonstrating their ability to defend themselves using the techniques from the Ishin Ryu Ju Jitsu syllabus.

The Bushey Dojo also boasts a strong adult following, with the lessons comprising of general Ju Jitsu self defence techniques coupled with fitness training and team building.
