Lineage: Auckland Studio of Jiu Jitsu can trace its jiu jitsu lineage via Terry Evans to Hans van Ess OSA, who brought Kawaishi Jiu Jitsu to New Zealand from Holland in 1961.  Hans trained predominantly under Jaap Nauwelaerts de Agé, who studied under Jean de Herdt, one of Mikonosuke Kawaishi’s original French students.  He also trained under Gé Koning and the judo great, Anton Geesink.

Style: Auckland Studio of Jiu Jitsu teaches a system of Kawaishi Nihon Goshin Jutsu as developed by the head instructor Terry Evans. The school mainly concentrates on real self defense from real situations but also incorporates a sport fighting component.  Our focus though is on teaching quality Martial Arts that all can master given time.
