Welcome to Ishigaki Jujitsu

For over 25 years Ishigaki has been the UK's largest LGBT+ martial arts club.  We promote a safe and tolerant environment for anyone who wishes to train with us.



Following government guidelines and the guidance from our national organisation, Jikishin,  we are not currently training in the normal manner.  We are not taking new members at present.

Ishigaki has been training people from all walks of life for over 25 years.  Everyone has their own reason for wanting to learn martial arts.  Here's some of the reasons to get involved.

  • Learn self defence

  • Work towards a black belt

  • Improve confidence

  • Improve physical and mental health

  • Train hard to a high standard

  • Make friends (we throw great socials)

  • Have fun!

Whatever your reason for considering starting, come along to one of our taster sessions and see what you think.  If you have any questions, check the FAQ or send us a message and just ask.
