There are 2 classes:
Kokodo Ju Jutsu is rooted in the teachings of Daito ryu Aikijujutsu. It is suitable for beginners in martial arts and for students of 16 years and above.
Takamura Ha Shindo Yoshin ryu (TSYR) is an advanced class and most suited to budo practitioners (aged 20+) who have already gained a dan grade in a Japanese martial art. We focus on the budo principles of connection, balance and efficient body movement that transcend all styles. It is particularly suited to those with a Wado ryu karate heritage as it is the style of jujutsu studied by Ohtsuka Sensei.
