Our Testimonials

Always Have Something Nice to Say About Us

Brilliant place to learn in a relaxed and friendly environment. Sensei Steve is very knowledgeable and patient. With numerous classes to choose from, there’s something for everyone.
— Hayley

My 10yr old son attends the Combat Jujitsu Ryu – Devon branch class on a Tuesday night and has learnt so much from Sensei Steve. He has Aspergers and is treated with respect, compassion and understanding. Even though he’s 10 he’s a good 5ft 9 so trains with the adults who are very caring, patient and supportive of him, which he needs.

The hub provides a safe and welcoming environment to anyone wanting to try something new or continue their training and that’s what makes it so special.

Unfortunately due to work and other commitments we haven’t had an opportunity to try any other classes but the jujitsu class is incredible value in a perfect, well equipped location.
