Japanese Jiu-Jitsu

UoG Jiu Jitsu

Jiu Jitsu is a fun and effective form of self-defence. We teach a modern form of the traditional Japanese martial art of Jiu Jitsu. Combining a system of throws, joint locks, and strikes; students are taught to use an aggressor's energy against them.

Throughout the year, we have many opportunities to get together with other clubs from across the country, including national training sessions and competitions twice a year.

We try to get together regularly outside of sessions for fun socials. That might mean anything from a night out in pubs and clubs, to trampolining, mini golf or a chill night in playing games or watching movies. We have a great mix of people in the club and we try our best to cater to everyone's interests.


Training times:

  • Tue 7pm - 9pm
  • Thu 7pm - 9pm

Every Week

Training sessions are currently held in the sports studio by the gym at Oxstalls Campus (turn right at the main reception and follow the corridor to the end)
