Jiu Jitsu


Jiu Jitsu is a comprehensive martial art, consisting of throws, submissions and striking, oriented toward practical self-defence for the modern day. Our style encourages training in a safe and collaborative manner, that allows people of all levels to develop and enjoy themselves!


We train toward gradings at the end of each term, where we demonstrate and pressure-test our techniques in order to earn new belts. In 2022/23, we achieved a 100% pass rate in all of our gradings!


Our club is part of The Jiu-Jitsu Foundation (TJJF), the largest single-style Jiu-Jitsu organisation in the UK. Which means when you join us you have access to clubs all over the country, and even internationally! So it is easy to continue on your jiu jitsu journey wherever you may be in the future. 


We compete in two national Jiu Jitsu training-camp & competition weekends each year: the Atemi and Randori Championships. Where we frequently bring back medals at all grade levels, and we even won the national BUCS Team Women’s competition in 2022 and the TJJF’s Midlands Club of the Year 2023!


The first two sessions are FREE, and new members are welcome all year round. So why not pop us a message and give it a go?
