Welcome To Our Dojo

At Satorikan Ju Jutsu Dojo we practice an eclectic, constantly evolving, form of ju jutsu that combines the old with the new embracing the best of its Japanese origins and traditions.

Covid-19 has changed the world in many ways and martial arts practice is just one of many activities that are heavily impacted.

Ju Jutsu being a close-quarter combat system has a dependency upon one or more training partners working in very close proximity which, to maintain personal safety, is currently prohibited under current UK government guidelines. For obvious reasons this limits the ability to practice a large part of the Ju Jutsu syllabus.

Satorikan Ju Jutsu Dojo is re-commencing training focusing on three elements:
1. Tandoku Renshu – individual practice
2. Battojutsu – drawing sword techniques
3. Bojutsu – staff techniques

Sadly Satorikan Ju Jutsu Dojo has been impacted by another issue beyond our control, the church roof has been declared structurally unsafe and as such we are temporarily having to use an interim dojo in a barn at Staddiscombe (full address below)…

What is Ju Jutsu?

Ju Jutsu is a Japanese system of unarmed combat developed and used by the Samurai Warriors. It is an efficient and effective method of close combat designed to defeat one or more opponents using either empty hands or a short weapon.

This ancient Japanese martial art is closely related to Aiki Ju Jutsu and has influenced the development of a number of “younger” martial arts such as Judo and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Greg Regan sensei is a 5th dan ju jutsu teacher and has spent more than 40 years studying and teaching martial arts. He is continually researching and refining his ju jutsu knowledge and skill base and firmly believes that the study of ju jutsu is a lifelong journey.

Greg started his ju jutsu training in West Chiltington, West Sussex in Nov 1975 before moving to Plymouth in 1979 where he met Peter Farrar sensei (1960 – 1998) and spent the following 17 years training under Farrar sensei and his teacher Brian Graham shihan ( – 2005).

In 1998 Greg met Billy Doak shihan ( – 2009) and spent the next 10 years making regular trips to Wales to train under Doak shihan until his untimely death in 2009. During that time Greg was awarded his 3rd and 4th dans by Doak shihan.

Mo Piero Rovigatti was introduced to Greg in 2002 and has forged and maintained strong links ever since. Mo Rovigatti awarded Greg his 5th dan in 2013.

Greg also holds an honorary 1st dan in aikido, awarded by Gwynne Jones shihan.
