Martial Arts, Self Defence, Ju-Jitsu, Black Belt, Watford, Bushey, Herts, Hertfordshire, South Oxhey, Hemel Hempstead, Hertford

2018 marks an important milestone in our club history as this year we are celebrating our 10th Anniversary.

We opened our first Dojo 21st September 2008 at David Lloyd Health Club in Bushey closely followed by Hemel and Bushey Grove Dojos and soon after St Albans, South Oxhey and Hertford.

After our time expired at David Lloyd we enjoyed a brief spell in the Yudansha Centre in Bushey and we now train weekly at Queens School in Bushey.

I'm extremely grateful to all our children, parents and senior students for your continued support of our exceptional club.

We are looking forward to see what the next 10 years can bring us, so why dont you help us celebrate by arranging a FREE no obligation trial lesson.
