About Group

LUU Jiu Jitsu Club is a friendly, welcoming martial arts club. Beginners are welcome at any time, and your first session is free.

We teach self defence – focusing on throwing, striking and locking in a safe environment. We practice multiple different scenarios in our sessions and allow our members to learn at a pace that suits them. Jiu Jitsu is also excellent for fitness, coordination and flexibility.

The club has a vibrant social scene. As well as regular pub trips to get to know each other, we have a wide range of inclusive socials. Last year these included trampolining, movie nights, bowling, and nights out. We also do joint socials with other martial arts societies!

Throughout the year we make regular trips around the country to train with other clubs. We train and compete regionally and nationally with the best instructors in The Jiu Jitsu Foundation. In recent years we have won national competitions out of over 100 other Jiu Jitsu clubs in the UK and been awarded “Club of The Year” twice.
