Jiu Jitsu


Wanting to try something new, make new friends, improve your fitness all while learning how to protect yourself? Then try Jiu Jitsu! We teach simple, practical self-defence in a safe and friendly environment.


Our club has a core membership of around 30, and while our main contingent comes from the university’s student body, we also welcome local community members. Our friendly atmosphere encourages everyone of all abilities to learn our martial art at a pace that pushes yet suits them. Reaching out to the wider community, we have run free self-defence sessions at the university, winning us University of Birmingham Sport’s Impact Award 2016 as well as recently taking part in This Brum Girl Can event, proving how our sport is open to everyone!


We train and look forward to our end of term gradings, which see us showcase and prove the techniques that we know to earn our grades. Consistently performing well at competitions, our amazing record and camaraderie is down to our policy of training hard and playing harder!


We compete in two national Jiu-Jitsu competitions each year: the Atemi and Randori Championships. The Jiu-Jitsu Foundation, that our club belongs to, is the largest single-style Jiu-Jitsu organisation in Britain with clubs all over the country – making it very likely that you’ll be able to continue your Jiu-Jitsu journey even once you’ve completed your studies.


So, come along and give us a try. The first two weeks of sessions are FREE so there’s nothing to lose!
