Jiu Jitsu

Jiu Jitsu is a defensive martial art based upon the use of joint locks, throws, and strikes, designed to defend from a variety of different attacks and redirect an attacker's force and momentum against them. Based upon the principle of using minimum effort to produce maximum effect, it allows people of all ages, sizes and strength levels to take part. Jiu Jitsu is taught in a welcoming and fun environment and is a great practical skill to learn, whilst also improving your posture, strength and fitness levels.

Beginners are welcome to come along to any of our training sessions throughout the year where our expert instructors provide welcoming, relaxed sessions in which each person can progress and learn at their own pace. If you're interested in finding out more then all you need to do is turn up to a training session with some loose clothing to wear and give it a go for yourself. Your first session is completely free, and you'll get a second session free if you bring along a friend.

The Club also provides regular opportunities to train and socialise with members of other Jiu Jitsu clubs in the Yorkshire region and beyond as we are part of the nationwide Jiu Jitsu Foundation which gives all members the opportunity to attend great courses, competitions and social events across the country. We also hold regular social events throughout the year, including Pub Crawls, Movie Nights, Meals Out, and our infamously fun "Drink to a Dan" nights.

Interested in finding out more? Come meet us at this year’s Fresher’s Fairs, email us at or follow our Facebook and Twitter pages where you'll find further information about the club and training sessions, along with photos of some of our spectacular Jitsu in action.
