About us

Our instructors

Franck Franck started martial arts when he was 14 years old in Bordeaux, France. He practiced Mushin Ryu Ju-Jutsu until he moved to the UK where he practiced Shorinji Kan Jiu-Jitsu up to black belt with The Jiu-Jitsu Foundation. He opened the Sydney Jitsu Club in 2014 where he now teaches most sessions. Franck is dedicated to the progress of his students while still training jitsu and various other martial arts around Sydney.
Picture to come Jason started Shorinji Kan Jiu-Jitsu in 1990 with Sensei Andy Dobie (now top ranked instructor of Jitsu Canada), in Plymouth, UK. He did judo at the same time for two years before focusing on Jitsu. Jason has tried several other martial arts before trying BJJ in 2008 in Australia and found this matched Jitsu well and continue to practice this. He always came back to Jitsu because of the training, it's such good fun, and the fact that whatever martial arts you do , Jitsu can absorb and use those skills. Jason is a passionate teacher and comes Mondays, allowing student to get a different perspective on our art and benefit of his great experience.
Picture to come Stuart started Jitsu in the UK whilst at Loughborough University for fitness and self-defense in 2006. Stuart has trained in Muay Thai Kickboxing, Judo and a little bit of Iaido. Stuart moved to Sydney in 2015 and joined Sydney Jitsu soon after. Stuart became an instructor (brown belt) in 2016 and is keen to help pass on his knowledge to the next generation of Jitsukas.

Member testimonials

I joined Jitsu in the UK whilst at University for fitness and self defense. I’ve tried other martial arts but nothing was as practical and fun as Jitsu. When I moved to Australia fortunately Sydney club opened and I could continue with this amazing style. Training is practical and challenging so you will not be disappointed. The atmosphere is really friendly and sociable so you will make lifelong friends and have good fun learning an amazing martial art.Stuart S.

It’s hard to come up with something else than positive outcomes when I think about my Jitsu experience overall.
I’m baffled when I think how poor was my perception of this martial art before I started, I was thinking about some kind of a dusty and ultra traditional practice. I found a very welcoming, fun yet intense sport with just the hint of formalism to make it really serious and progressive.
Put your Gi on and join us on the mats!Florian P.

I started doing Jitsu because it looked like a good way of keeping fit & if at the same time I could learn how to defend myself then all the better.
For the past 2 years I have trained under Sensei Franck’s tutelage, which has been excellent. In that time I have achieved increased confidence, great friendships and I am the fittest I have been in years. Sensei Franck is an excellent Jitsu teacher who creates a welcoming environment to learn Jitsu.Chris M.

Six stars! Great Sensei, friendly, encouraging environment. I’ll be back for more…Debra W.

Sydney Jitsu is an incredible place to train with a strong tight knit relationship between students and teachers. I hope to train there more in the futurePaul S.
