Are you starting life at Sheffield University? Are you looking to join a club? Why not try something new?
Jiu Jitsu is a Japanese martial that uses throws, locks and grappling to defend against attackers, using minimum effort. We're a traditional martial art, but also practise modern-day things like bottle or (rubber) knife defences -- all in a safe training environment.
You'll learn to throw people bigger than yourself on the floor, you'll get fit, you'll increase your confidence, you'll improve your body coordination, and you'll make a bunch of new friends!
At our GIAG session you will be taught some simple, safe, effective self-defence techniques that anyone can use regardless of size, and will receive a taste of what our training sessions are like.
You don't have to be strong.
You don't have to have done any martial arts previously.
You don't have to know any Japanese.
You don't have to bring anything other than clothes you can comfortably move about in, and possibly a water bottle.
