The Northern England Yoshinkan Dojo is dedicated to the study of Traditional Japanese Martial Arts.

Our style is Moto-ha Yoshin Ryu Jujutsu (a branch of the Hontai Yoshin Ryu Takagi Ryu lineage), under Soke Yasumoto Akiyoshi
.

More information about the history of the Hontai Yoshin Ryu-Takagi Ryu lineage can be found in our archive section.

The dojo is the headquarters of The North Lakes Jujutsu Association, an independent not for profit martial arts association based in Carlisle, and is the Motoha Yoshin Ryu headquarters for the UK under the supervision of the British Hombu-cho Andy McCormack.

The North Lakes Jujutsu Association was founded in 1992 by Andy McCormack and training partner Martin Elliot, with the aims of furthering their study of traditional Japanese Jujutsu, and to promote authentic Japanese Jujutsu in Cumbria and the North.

We were initially introduced to Yasumoto Soke as teenagers, when at that time (mid-1980s) as a Menkyo Kaiden teacher of Hontai Yoshin Ryu, Yasumoto sensei visited the UK teaching Hontai Yoshin Ryu Jujutsu to the World Jujitsu Federation.

Since then the standard of jujutsu and the North Lakes Jujutsu Association has grown from strength to strength, and operating three Cumbrian Dojos along with students around the world.
