About North Kent Ju-Jitsu

NKJJK- North Kent Ju-Jitsu Kai is a club based in Gravesend, Kent.

Ju-Jitsu is a martial art originating from Japan.
Using locks, throws and pressure points, students are taught to defend themselves in almost all situations - preparing students for practical, real-life/street applications.

Everyone is welcome; there are classes for all ages and abilities.

Students go through a set syllabus for each belt or grade and when they are sufficiently prepared will take exams. As students pass up through the grades, they will learn more advanced techniques and can even look into separate syllabuses such as weapon training!
