Welcome Freshers!

Beginner sessions starting 1st OCTOBER!ateminationalsimage

We teach practical self-defence techniques that work for anyone of any shape, size or ability. By using an attacker’s strength and momentum against them, and learning a lot about balance, intelligent striking and the body’s natural weaknesses, you’ll be able to deal with a person much bigger and stronger than you.

Come along to any session and try Jiu Jitsu for free. We train every Monday and Thursday from 8-10pm in Hugh Cubbitt Centre (by Kings Cross) and Friday night from 7:30 – 10 pm in the Bloomsbury Fitness Centre on Gordon Street. Our three lead instructors have nearly 40 years of teaching experience between them.

To find out more, come along to any session. Your first two sessions are free!


Monday, 8-10pm, Hugh Cubbitt
Thursday, 8-10pm, Hugh Cubbitt
Friday, 7:30-10pm, Bloomsbury Fitness

President: Deniz Sezer
Treasurer: Oliver Bennett

Congratulations Marianne!

Very happy to say that Marianne Pearson was awarded her brown belt this year.  It was not an easy grading but she handled it with style.  Well done dude.

London Pregrading

The pregrading approaches.

Location: London Nautical School, 61 Stamford St, Lambeth, London SE1 9NA, UK (entrance on Hatfields)
Date: Saturday 18 November
Time: 09.30 -16:00
Cost: £10 Adults

For those new to jiu jitsu, you must be nominated by a club instructor to grade, and the first step is attending the pregrading — you’ll cover a lot of syllabus there. You must attend if you hope to grade. It’s good training, so go even if you think you’re not ready to grade this time. It’s hard to tell how you’re doing in jiu jitsu, and a lot of people take themselves out of gradings by missing the pregrading. Don’t do that. Go train.

Welcome Freshers!

We are back on the mat and running taster sessions for new people during early October — the first session is Monday 2 October at Hugh Cubitt Centre from 8 – 10 pm.  Come along to any session — Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8 – 10 in Hugh Cubitt and Fridays from 7.30 – 9.45 in the Bloomsbury Fitness Centre.

Our focus is on practical self-defence that works, for people of any size, shape and level of fitness.  We teach Japanese jiu jitsu — striking, locking, throwing, and ground fighting, and  we blend in to our introductory sessions violence awareness and personal safety techniques.

Your first session is free, and the club is open to anyone willing to work hard.  Just wear something lose and comfortable.  Everyone is welcome to join us for a drink in the pub after.  Any questions, find the UCLU Jitsu Club on Facebook.
