Street Survival: Modern Ju Jitsu

Technique Over Strength.

Welcome to the University of Chester’s Street Survival: Modern Ju-Jitsu club.

“Technique over strength”

Street Survival: Modern Ju-Jitsu is a style of self-defence based martial art developed from the Defensive Tactics Systems. We practice the best and most usable martial art based techniques for the streets, based off Ju-Jitsu and incorporating elements from a number of fighting styles. Which is also taught to law enforcement by our head instructor.
