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.
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.
Dudes, until term starts up again we are very pleased to confirm that Summer training is on!
Mondays & Fridays 8-10pm in Mandela Hall, Bloomsbury Fitness Centre, Gordon Street, until Sep 1st.
Students/Non-students: £3 per session or £50 for a 12 week pass.
From 1 October we’re training on Monday and Thursdays from 8 – 10 pm at Hugh Cubitt Centre, 48 Collier St, London N1 9QZ, a short walk from King’s Cross, and on Friday nights from 8 – 9.45 in the dojo, Bloomsbury Fitness Centre, 15 Gordon St, London WC1H 0AY.
It’s Fresher’s week, and we’re looking forward to welcoming the next generation on the mat! Your first session is free, so come along and try jiu jitsu.
