Jujitsu School of Self Defense

About Us

We offer training in Waboku Jujitsu, but we also offer training in Kick Boxing, MMA fighting, Ground Grappling, and Traditional Martial Arts Weapons. Our dojo is built around the students individual needs, goals, and desires. We offer up to three classes a week with up to six instructors per class. This allows us to have a LOW student to instructor ratio.

Don

Grand Master Don Lewis

Don Lewis, a 22 year old martial artist, started Waboku Jujitsu around the year 1970. Don modified a traditional Jujitsu system to meet the criteria of modern physical education, techniques, knowledge, modern opponents, weapons, current legal regulations, and the typical American culture and students. Having studied many systems of martial arts since he was eight, he holds degrees in a number of them. He and his wife Jane Lewis are both ordained American Baptist Ministers and have worked in the mental health field for the majority of their professional careers specializing in mental illness, sexual behavior issues, and operation of mental health and faith based organizations. Both Don and Jane are retired, as two driven people can be, from the professional life and are currently enjoying their life together on the mountain tops in Virginia.

Waboku Jujitsu
Taught by Master Kelley
Waboku Jujitsu system is designed to be a pure self defense, changing as the times and needs of the population require. It is not like some of the old systems where they teach sword defense because when was the last time you were attacked with a sword? Waboku jujitsu is easy to learn and easy to remember using what a person would natural do if confronted in a self defense situation. The class is taught in comfortable, relaxed enviroment.

Testimonies

Master Kelley’s passion for the art of jujitsu is clearly evident from the moment you walk through the doors of the dojo. He is a great instructor, knowing how to adapt the class to each person’s needs and to where they are at in their journey. There is so much wisdom and much to learn from him that strains off from more than just self-defense moves. He will help you establish confidence, patience and help you find ways to overcome challenges. I find myself looking forward to each class and not only learn a great deal, but enjoy myself wholeheartedly as well. I would definitely recommend The Jujitsu School of Defense to anyone who is thinking about taking up this art!

My experience at this school was fantastic. Rob was extremely nice and made sure i felt comfortable with everything he was teaching me to do. He was also very positive about my progress even though i giggled through the majority of the lesson. He, also, gave a tour of the school and the people involved with it before we began any sort of lesson. I would recommend the Jujitsu School of Self-Defense to anyone who is interested in learning to protect themselves.

Been studying here for a long time and it is fantastic. We are a family and we all get along great. The instructors are great teachers and the fighting style could not be better suited to how I and a lot of other people learn.
