Jiu Jitsu (Aiuchi)

Category: Martial Arts

Jiu Jitsu is a traditional Japanese self-defence martial art, originally adapted from the unarmed combat techniques of the samurai. We recognise that times have changed so we train in a modern interpretation of the art.

Aiuchi Jiu-Jitsu is always taught from a self-defence perspective in a safe, friendly environment. We have students of all abilities - whether you are a complete novice or have a wealth of martial arts experience, you're welcome at our sessions.

We focus primarily on throws, joint manipulation and groundwork while incorporating some striking into our training. Our style uses balance and movement rather than strength, so anyone can learn it. We hold national courses and events throughout the year with our clubs around the UK.

We always welcome new students, medics and non-medics alike. Your first three sessions are free, and you can wear normal exercise clothes.


We're a friendly and inclusive club, and we believe it's important to get to know everyone during training and after. Training sessions are usually followed by a visit to the pub, and we have planned social activities throughout the year.


If you want to try something new, fun, & challenging come along to any of our 3 sessions in our 2 training venues:

7-9 pm Union Gym (Third Floor Beit-quad)

7-9 pm iGym Studio, Woodward Halls, 1 Victoria Road, W3 6BL
