Jiu Jitsu is the ancient Japanese martial art of the Samurai, which focuses on the principles of flow, body movement, and balance. Through these principles, a jitsuka would be able to effectively defend themselves against one or more, armed or unarmed assailants, regardless of their own size or strength.
Jiu Jitsu is therefore an excellent means of self-defence that anyone can learn. In the process, one can gain an increased confidence in oneself, as well as a higher level of physical fitness.
All courses are taught in a friendly, approachable environment. Our coaches are Adrian Charteris and Costin Striblea.
After sessions, we usually meet at the pub for drinks. This gives members a great opportunity to get to know each other, which helps build a level of trust that is essential for effective self-defence training and also in making new friends within the club. In addition, we host numerous socials throughout the academic year. However this may be done slightly differently this year due to COVID.
