The Benefits of Ju Jitsu


Ju Jitsu exercises the whole body and improves cardiovascular health too!

Our training sessions are an hour and a half long structured in way to help improve your overall fitness: strength, power, flexibility and cardiovascular endurance.


Ju Jitsu also helps take you out of your comfort zone which develops confidence that you may take to other areas of your life. Being good at a physical skill is something you can take pride in.

Self Defence

It is best to avoid fighting, learning to de-escalate a potentially dangerous situation is important. If an unavoidable fight broke out, however, Ju Jitsu gives you the knowledge and skills to handle it effectively.


Ju Jitsu requires dedication. Practicing the discipline to keep training is important as it helps keep you on the path to your next belt.

The discipline learned from Ju Jitsu can translate to other areas of life which you want to take control of.

Why Choose Ju Jitsu Over Other Martial Arts?

Easy to Get Started

Students start at red belt where we teach the fundamentals such as safety and dojo etiquette. After a few weeks, students earn their white belt where they get to move on to the exciting stuff like throws, locks and takedowns. Ju Jitsu is appropriate for anyone, no matter their age or ability.

Practical Skills

Ju Jitsu is designed specifically to give people the skills they need to defend themselves in a real world situation, rather than solely as a competitive sport.

Gives Women an Advantage

Ju Jitsu is great for ladies self-defence. Rather than directly opposing your attacker, you are able to use their own strength against them.
