Welcome to the Ryusui-ryu website for East Grinstead - the East Grinstead club has had a martial arts school presence in the town since 1987.
Sensei Waters formed the school after many years of study in different martial arts including karate, aikido, iaido, judo, kyudo and wing chun.
The guiding principle is that all Martial Arts are basically the same in their mode of operation and as such we practice a number of traditional Japanese martial arts (budo) as one art form.
The emphasis is always on safety and learning, we often refer to this as ‘play fighting’. As such we are not learning to fight but we are learning the skills of fighting.
Our aim is to develop individuals who have self-control, confidence and discipline through non-violent dedicated study. The emphasis is on relaxed, flowing movements.
We offer combined parent and children training sessions. We recognise that fitness and fun for the family is important in our busy lives. This session will enable busy parents to utilise their valuable time effectively.
Beginners are always welcome, the practice will be challenging but fun also. Age or ability is no barrier. Open your mind and train your body. Contact us for details.
