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. Your first session is free, and our introductory sessions on Wednesday 30th September and Monday 5th October are taught by Sensei Alan and Sensei Emily.
After sessions we 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. We host numerous socials across the whole of the academic year.
