Florida Jukido Jujitsu Academy (often shortend to simply “Jukido Academy” or “FJJA”) has been the premiere authentic martial arts school in Palm Coast and Flagler County since 1999 and offers authentic jujitsu and karate classes for children and adults. As the longest running school in Palm Coast and Flagler County, the Florida Jukido Jujitsu Academy has established itself the trusted source for legitimate martial arts instruction and the local authority on all matters regarding realistic self defense.

The Florida Jukido Jujitsu Academy began in October of 1999 as a small and humble martial arts program, offering instruction in a traditionally based, yet mondern, style of Jujitsu for adults and children of Palm Coast and Flagler County, Florida. Since that time the dojo (or academy) has developed into a trusted source for martial arts instruction with quality and integrity as highlighted features.

Palm Coast and Flagler County have seen many schools come and go over the years – schools that offered karate, tae kwon do, judo, jiu-jitsu, aikido, sambo, MMA, kung fu, and other assorted martial arts. However, the Florida Jukido Jujitsu Academy has run continuously without any interruption in Palm Coast and Flagler County since its founding by Sensei George Rego (Chief Instructor). In addition to offering Jukido Jujitsu and Kokondo Karate classes, the Jukido Academy also conducts special self defense seminars for the community. The Jukido Academy regularly offers free women’s self defense clinics for the community. Including at Daytona State College (Palm Coast & Daytona Beach,FL Campus), University of Central Florida, Fitness Centers in Palm Coast, Radiology Associates, NASCAR world headquarters, United Way, and other organizations. Staying true to authentic jujitsu, karate, and all real martial arts – the Jukido Academy strongly advocates that martial arts be utilized and taught for self defense purposes and not simply as a form of sport. In recent times, martial arts schools, claiming to teach tae kwon do, karate, judo, MMA, Brazilian jiu-jitsu (BJJ), karate, and other martial arts – have marketed their efforts toward children with “martial arts” classes that are nothing more then “karate” themed daycares. As “fun” as some of these programs might be, and with as many trophies as might appear in window for parents to see from the waiting area, these classes are not offering legitimate martial arts for realistic self defense. At the Florida Jukido Jujitsu Academy, whether a student is a child or an adult – they will received quality self defense instruction while instilling the discipline and other tangible and intangible benefits that come to dedicated students.

The Jukido Jujitsu Academy has appeared in various media in Palm Coast, Bunnell, Flagler Beach, and nationally (Blizzard 93.3 FM, WNZF 106.3, Flagler Times, Flagler Magazine, etc) promoting the arts of Jukido Jujitsu and Kokondo Karate. As the trusted local authority on martial arts and self defense, with internationally sanctioned instructors in Jukido Jujitsu and Kokondo Karate, the Florida Jukido Jujitsu Academy has set itself apart from the typical ‘martial arts’ schools and the community has shown strong support for it’s longest running martial arts academy.

gi wallpaperOne of the many elements that separate the Florida Jukido Jujitsu Academy and its authentic martial arts of Jukido Jujitsu and Kokondo Karate from many others – is the passion of its instructors and students. The dojo (school or academy) becomes an extended family in which camaraderie is abundant. The dojo “family” is tied together by the shared experience of hard work, forging disciplined spirits, working together on their goals, and perfecting their martial arts and self defense skills. The dojo family that is the Jukido Jujitsu Academy is not tied together by a business transaction that defines the relationship between schools and students (and their parents) in most martial arts studios. Rather, the students who practice Jukido Jujitsu and/or Kokondo Karate in Palm Coast know that their bonds are not legal or contractual – they have a relationship build on the traditional martial arts tenants of discipline, courage, honor, loyalty, and respect. This is seen in the Palm Coast dojo every single day in a very visible way! Students of all ages and from all walks of life share in the up keep of the academy (dojo): cleaning windows, sweeping floors, vacuuming mats, and other chores. In most modern ‘martial arts’ studio’s they wouldn’t ever think of having their “customers” (i.e. students) taking care of chores…because it’s “bad business” practice. Again, the passion of our dojo and all traditional martial arts dojo is not one of “business” – but of an extended family working together on their goals of perfection of the arts of Jukido Jujitsu and Kokondo Karate, and more importantly on the perfection of their characters. Like in all families, everyone plays an important part.
