About Jiu Jitsu:
The core of the art comprises a system of throws, joint locks and strikes. Based on the principle of using an aggressor’s energy to their own disadvantage, Jiu Jitsu skills can be used by men, women and children to counter aggressive situations. Jiu Jitsu is a progressive martial art that offers a means of personal and physical development, as well as an effective system of self-defence. Regular training can help to improve strength, fitness, flexibility, coordination and posture.
Most people find that Jiu Jitsu also improves their self-esteem and self-confidence. Taking part is a fantastic way to meet new friends and offers a vibrant social life out of Club training, with many events organised throughout the year. The best way to find out more is to come along and join in. Even our instructors were novices once! Our aim is to provide a friendly environment. Don’t worry if you are not at the peak of fitness either. All you need to start is some loose clothing and a willingness to learn. Bring a friend along too if you like!
Beginners are always welcome!
