I’ve been training at this particular Dojo for three years and feel the training style to be one of the best I have experienced. It stays true to it’s Japanese roots, while at the same time looking for new and modern ways to solve the age old problem of defending yourself against an attacker. Jujitsu does not require size or strength to defeat an attacker and the individual techniques can be tailored to suit every individual, which explains the variety of people who train here. I have now moved out of the local area, but still continue to train with Senseis, which is a testament to the teaching style and variety of techniques available.

I was introduced to the Kew dojo and Sensei Max after bringing my son to the judo classes. At 45, I was worried that I may be too old for Ju-Jitsu training but Sensei persuaded me otherwise. The training is physically demanding, and I have never been as fit as I am now, but all students are treated individually and with great respect for their particular abilities. Sensei Max teaches with a great sense of humour but also with an attention to proper technique and hard work. Our training is not only for the dojo but is relevant to real-life self-defence too. So, whatever your age, if you are prepared for some hard work with a friendly bunch of people and want to train in the amazing martial art of Ju-Jitsu then this could be the place for you.
I started my practice of Jujutsu with Sensei Max about three years ago. Since my first lesson I have been hooked. Max teaches Jujutsu in a very attentive manner, explaining the process and techniques in a very interesting and relaxed way that unveils the fascinating physical and spiritual aspects of this brilliantly simple martial art. In my relatively short time at Kew dojo, under Max's tuition I have progressed quickly with my courses and grading. If anyone is thinking about practising martial arts of any kind or is simply interested in the spiritual side and the philosophy of Ki then an introduction to Jujutsu with Sensei Max will definitely open the door to many paths.
