Bromley Jujitsu and Self Defence is a part of Shu Ho Jujitsu Ryu, founded in 1979, and is derived from Juko Ryu Jujitsu. The name Shu-Ho means "Superior Peak" or "Mountain". This name was given to the head of Shu-Ho Jujitsu, Sensei Colin Elgie, by his own Sensei, Soke Hajime Hayabuch.


Jujitsu is the name of the martial art we practice. 'Ju' means pliable - to use any necessary means to overcome our attacker, seen or unseen. 'Jitsu' may be translated as warlike art or science. The combination of Ju and Jitsu is formidable, making it possible to meet an attack with any type of defence from traditional martial arts: kicks and strikes, throws, chokes, locks or takedowns. The defence would be applied to key weak points on the attacker including eyes, head, major organs of the body and joints. The effectiveness of these techniques means that it is not possible to practice jujitsu as a sport and during training the techniques must be performed with care and control to ensure that no injuries are inflicted.
