Yoshinkan Dojo, Southern England Branch
We are a traditionally focused Japanese Martial Arts Dojo in Crondall, between Fleet and Farnham.
Originally opened in 2012 using sports halls and similar, we have recently moved into our own purpose fit Dojo.
We have a friendly, no nonsense approach to training, which is conducted safely in a traditional manner.
Suitable for anyone, from beginners right through to experienced martial artists, regardless of your age, size or current fitness levels we're here to help you achieve your goals.
Our focus is not on sport martial arts, or flashy moves, and you will find our attitude towards self defence quite different to many other organisations.
You will find a serious and common sense approach to actual fighting. Our aim is to give you real life skills (physical and mental) which will give you confidence and enable you to handle yourself and stay safe in a violent and/or potentially life threatening situation.
The same skills used by Samurai for generations to stay alive in a culture where death and killing was an accepted way of life, on and off the battlefield.
We teach both adults and children, maintaining a real family feel to the Dojo as many of our adults also have their children practicing, this creates a great atmosphere and a rare chance to bond over a mutual interest. So if you have children this could be a good chance to connect while learning something useful.
With a direct connection to our Hombu Dojo in Japan, our students regularly visit for training, and to experience the country and unique culture, Yasumoto Soke has also visited our Dojo. You can really benefit from this additional experience and see how it makes a real difference to the style of practice we offer.
Our name was given to us by Yasumoto Sensei, Soke of the Motoha Yoshin Ryu school of Jujutsu, Eikoku Nanbu Yoshinkan Shibu Dojo - Yoshinkan Dojo, Southern England Branch.
