The International Kempo Ju-Jitsu Union (I.K.J.J.U.), is a Multi Style Martial Arts Union which acts as an umbrella organization for Kyusho Jitsu Europe. The I.K.J.J.U. is currently overseen by O’Shihan David Court (Judan) along with a committee of senior Black Belts: Shihan John Duggan (Hachidan), Shihan Mark Holland (Shichidan), Shihan George Launders (Shichidan), & Shihan Dave Court (Godan).

The I.K.J.J.U. & K.J.E. are happy to accept applications for membership from any Martial Arts Instructor regardless of Country, System or Style, we only ask that you submit a copy of your current syllabus, Public Liability, Professional Indemnity and certificate of rank(s) along with your membership request. All applications are discussed by the committee on a case-by-case basis, with a majority required to approve the application.

Our goal is to bring together like-minded instructors & students of the martial arts who are willing to interact with each other and members of other clubs and associations outside the I.K.J.J.U. with the aim to improve knowledge, skill and efficiency whilst sharing ideas and learning from each other. We firmly believe that we grow by helping each other continue to learn.
