Fushicho, the eternal bird, the phoenix, is being reborn.
We have chosen a name that both gives clarity about what we do, and more closely fits our ideal of self-defence for modern times.
Our new identity is Gendai Jujutsu.

Self-defence for Children & Teenagers

We teach a modern style of jujutsu, specifically designed for self-defence.

Our programs are age-specific, so members train with and learn martial arts skills appropriate to their age (girls and boys 5-17, 8-11 and 12-17 years) in a fun, safe and respectful environment.

Class sizes are kept small, we can make sure each student always gets the attention they need.

In addition to technical skills, our programs develop the whole individual:

  • Discipline – concentration, self-control, why to follow rules, better study habits
  • Independence – for self-sufficiency
  • Social skills – getting along with peers and the meaning of ‘respect’
  • Commitment – finish what you start
  • Positive self-image – healthy attitude toward self and others
  • Physical conditioning – co-ordination, balance, flexibility
  • Situational awareness – recognise and avoid danger
  • Leadership – confidence, independence and courtesy
  • Emotional maturity – manage the situation

About Us

At Fushicho Martial Arts, we feel strongly about making sure our students learn skills for ‘real life’, which is why we teach a non-competitive style of mixed martial arts.

And we make absolutely sure a lot of fun is had doing it.

Students learn practical techniques, with just some of the benefits being increased confidence, co-ordination, and improvement in focus and self-control–all while having a blast!

It takes time to develop self-defence skills, but with a commitment to just one year of training, you will see a significant improvement in self-discipline and positive outlook, key to high achievement–in any field.

And there’s more!

In addition to teaching self-defence, we offer an outstanding Leader & Instructor Program
(free of charge to existing students!), specialist seminars such as Women’s self-defence,
and the option to include us in your school’s extracurricular or in-school activities.
