The Kano Jiu-Jitsu system incorporates both traditional and modern techniques, making this style suitable for all regardless of age, skill or health.

Beginners can develop the new skills at a steady pace and adapt as necessary for their own use. Martial Artists from different styles of Karate, Aikido, Judo and the grappling arts can all find similarities from their own experiences within the "Kano" style of Jiu-Jitsu.

Sensei Tom Starling Jnr 8th Dan, has developed this syllabus from over 43 years experience as a Black Belt. His extensive training in both this country and abroad with different high ranking masters and indeed his father Prof T.W. Starling 8th Dan has enabled him to develop a complete Syllabus, now in use throughout the International Budo Federation in the UK and on the Continent.

This unique syllabus gives the Jiu-Jitsuka both traditional and modernised forms combined to create the ultimate Self Defence System.
