Bujutsu Academy Birmingham developed this style of Aikijutsu to be a modern fusion of traditional martial arts with a dynamic and progressive approach to self-defence and combative technique.
What is Aikijutsu?
Aikijutsu is a combination art with striking, kicking, locks and throws.
The modern style was written less than 10 years ago and features performance kata practice, partner application and combative practice.
It is hybrid martial art taking inspiration from Aikido, Karate, Kobudo weapons, a little judo and whatever else has been thrown into it’s mix.

Technical know-how and adaptations, from kicking technique and power generation to performance skills for kata, combat relative applications and a good old fashioned tough graft workout. Pad work, sparring and rolling drills, adaptive combative precepts to challenge the mind and body.
This ain’t no standard, run of the mill, trad martial arts class. It can be nuts! It’s incredible fun and you will get to work with an impassioned group of fellow practitioners, some who have been training for over 40 years!
