    1. hi just out of interest did you know that there was two schools of ju jitsu already established in battersea in the early part of the 19th century

    2. The two earliest jujitsu schools in London (apart from the Bartitsu Club itself) were the Japanese School of Jujitsu in Oxford Street (run by former Bartitsu Club instructor Yukio Tani and Akitaro Ono) and the Golden Square dojo (originally run by former Bartitsu Club instructor Sadakazu Uyenishi, and later by William and Edith Garrud). Are either of these the ones you’re referring to?

    3. Hi thank you for your quick responce. These are not the schools inwhich i am referring to i already know about these above mensiond schools. No the two schools of ju jitsu inwhich i am referring to are the Anglo-Jap ju jitsu school, Wandsworth Road Battersea London S.W. and the ALPHA school of ju jitsu. Clapham Junction London S.W.
