Our Story

Welcome to Shibusa Jiu Jitsu Studio! 

What is Shibusa? 

It's a Japanese term describing a philosophy that emphasises beauty in simplicity, subtlety and hidden details that reveal themselves over time. 

This idea resonates in our approach and is complemented by our guiding principle: 'Good Jiu Jitsu for Good People.'

The Shibusa Philosophy

  • Simple Elegance: Here, mastery doesn't have to be flashy to impress. It's about doing exactly what's needed, no more, no less, but doing it to perfection. It's often the simplest techniques, executed with the right timing and finesse, that are the most effective.

  • Subtle Depth: Jiu Jitsu is an art of simple complexity. What seems straightforward has layers of details, requiring years to master fully. A single move can contain many aspects, most of which may not be immediately obvious but are crucial for mastery.

  • Effortless Mastery: This embodies our aspirational goal for you: to make even the most challenging techniques appear easy. It's not just about skill; it's about the highest levels of control and finesse.
