Hanshi Brian Herbert - 8th Dan Ju Jitsu.
Hanshi Brian Herbert - 8th Dan is the Head of the Jikishin Ju Jitsu Association.
With more than 35 years experience practicing, teaching and promoting Ju Jitsu and Martial Arts, Hanshi Brian Herbert is uniquely placed to drive the art forward in the 21st century.
Hanshi Brian Herbert's aspiration for Jikishin is to encourage the competitive spirit, particularly within the juniors.
With many disciplines to choose from, there are many ways to success in competition and Hanshi Herbert is determined that Jikishin should be a major force on the international Ju Jitsu stage.
Jikishin has seen considerable success in the International arena, and with the young Jujitsuka coming through and well trained for competition, further success is sure to follow.
In order to realise this objective, two National Coaches were appointed in 2012 to drive forward these competitive ambitions.
