Welcome to Tatsfield Martial Arts
We provide classes in traditional Kodokan Judo and Japanese Ju Jitsu at our dojo based at Tatsfield Scout Hut in Surrey. We welcome all ages and abilities to our classes and cater for complete beginners to competition level players. We also work with local organisations such as schools and Scouting to provide both long and short-term martial arts and self defence courses.
Our chief instructor Adam Plinston holds black belts in both Judo and Hontai Yoshin Ryu Ju Jitsu. He is graded to 5th Dan with WorldMAC Alliance and 4th Dan with the British Judo Association. He has been training in martial arts since 1979 and teaching since 1993.
Adam also holds a UKCC Level 2 coaching qualification with the BJA and is fully DBS checked and a qualified first-aider.
Currently all our classes run on a Thursday evening, please see the Schedule section for detailed timings.
JUDO (the Gentle Way) has developed into probably the best know & most popular Japanese martial art. An Olympic sport since 1964, Judo focuses on using an opponents force and aggression against them – incorporating throws, holds, locking and choking techniques. An exciting and safe combat sport!
JU-JITSU (the Gentle Art) is one of the oldest martial arts in existence, the unarmed combat art of the Samurai warrior. It is often referred to as the father of Japanese martial arts – incorporating the throws of judo, the strikes of karate and the locks of aikido. A traditional martial art and effective self defense system.
