Instructor Biography

Guy Preston

Chuden no Maki

Guy began training in martial arts over 30 years ago with a local Judo club, but with the popularity of Kung Fu movies in the 1980's he soon began practicing Lau Gar under Kevin Brewerton Sifu, who was also well known as a Champion Kick Boxer of the time.


He later spent time in Northern China where he studied Shaolin Kung Fu and Sanda Boxing under Shi Xing Heng Sifu (34th Generation Shaolin Monk) along with Tai Chi and Qi Gong under Shi Xing Qing Sifu (32nd Generation Shaolin Monk) as well as practicing 

Wing Chun in the UK under Dave Fenton Sifu.


Almost 20 years ago, he began to practice Jujutsu. Initially a modern form of Goshinjutsu under the late founder of the system Mike Johnson Sensei. 


Looking for something more authentic to progress his Japanese martial arts training Guy began studying the Kokusai Jujutsu Renmei (KJJR) system, including their Koryu schools such as Hontai Takagi Yoshin Ryu and Asayama Ichiden Ryu, as well as their Kenjutsu and Bojutsu systems, and was given teaching license in the system by Tanemura Shoto Sensei.


Guy later discovered Motoha Yoshin Ryu Jujutsu and Yasumoto Akiyoshi Soke via Andy McCormack, UK Shibu-Cho, and felt a personal connection with the fighting style stronger than in anything learned or practiced previously. He began the study of this school in earnest including travelling to Japan to practice with Yasumoto Soke directly as well as hosting him in the UK for training.

Guy now holds the Chuden Makimono (Scroll) awarded by Yasumoto Soke, and operates the Southern England Branch of the Yoshinkan Dojo.


He now practices this school of Jujutsu exclusively, along with the study of Muso Shinden Ryu Iaijutsu.


In 2018 Guy published the book, Ju No Seigo, an introduction to Japanese Jujutsu.
