James Marwood

I’ve known James for years, and trained with him loads. He’s travelled the world studying under some of the best self protection instructors out there, and regularly trains in Wrestling, BJJ, and Boxing as well as his self protection work. He’s also been involved in the HEMA community for about 15 years now. I’ve been trying to get him back to the Noble Science for ages. Now I’ve managed! – Oz

James Marwood

Hi, I’m James. My background is in traditional Japanese taijutsu and reality-based self defence. In more recent years I’ve focused more on sports based systems, mostly boxing. I’m especially interested in how to adapt these for self defence. I hold instructor qualifications in Red Zone Defence and Kapap. I’m also an instructor in Bartitsu, the Edwardian martial art made famous by Sherlock Holmes. This was a mixture of boxing, wrestling and Jiu Jitsu first taught in London in 1897. This was the first blended East/West martial arts system and one of the first designed for self defence in modern cities.
