The Barry Cook Ju-Jitsu Academy

The art of the Samurai

At our Ju-Jitsu Club, we strive to empower students to tackle challenges and take on new experiences. Below you’ll find the information you need about our classes, our team, and our methodology. We are an International Martial Arts Federation (Europe) registered member and we welcome new students so feel free to contact us or come down and try a free class.

Our Dojo provides an integrated lesson schedule of teaching through exploration, analysis, and self-reflection. Our classes combine hands-on experience with knowledge-based teaching of authentic Japanese Ju-Jitsu including hand to hand combat and weapons training. We accept students from age 5 and upwards including complete beginners and advanced Martial Arts practitioners.

Traditional Japanese Ju-Jitsu

To us, Ju-Jitsu isn't just about learning how to defend yourself, its about offering our members a path, a way of life that they can use as a template for the kind of person they are, or want to become in the future. We help them to set goals for themselves in the short and long term, and when they achieve them and their confidence grows, then they start to set longer and further goals to achieve.


Ju-Jitsu Benefits

Amongst the commonly known benefits of practicing Ju-Jitsu, is the quantity and quality of great friendships that can be created through the meetings that place during training. Seminars, conventions and Dojo visits all provide opportunities for practitioners to meet and make potentially lifelong friendships. At the BCJJA we definitely believe this is true and have friendships with many people, including Hollywood celebrity Martial Arts superstars.
