The Jitsu club at Northumbria are a friendly and welcoming community with members based at the university and those from the local community. Based out of Lipman Gym on the city campus, the club has access to enjoyable and supportive coached Japanese jiu-jitsu sessions throughout the week.
In addition to training tailored to your skill level, they have regular grading events held on site or in the local area, enabling you to see how much you’ve progressed and how empowered you’ve become. As a martial art they cover self-defence, throwing and locking techniques. The closeness and physicality of training breaks down many barriers, and helps you feel part of a strong jitsu community right from the start.
