Edinburgh Jitsu is a well established martial arts club that has been teaching Japanese Ju Jitsu in the city since 1996.

Our style is well suited for all ages and genders.
We have several active members aged over 40 and ca. 1/3 of our current members are female.

We also run a kids club - ideal for building your child's confidence, coordination and self-esteem. Our instructors are first-aid trained and PVGS cleared.

Your first two taster sessions are free, then it costs £5 for each 2 hour class.

If you've just missed a beginners session then you can still get in touch - we do sometimes accept students outwith beginner sessions.

Background:

Ju Jitsu originated around 1600 AD in Japan and is the parent art from which judo, Brazilian ju-jitsu and aikido derive. The principle is to use the force of an attack against an assailant through application of throws, locks and strikes. It is taught and used by both the Japanese police force and British military. When done correctly, techniques don't require strength. The force of your response can be 'dialled up' or 'dialled down' to match the intent of an attacker.

Introductory sessions are a lot of fun and very popular, you don't have to do anything you don't want to try. If you'd like to find out more then you can check out our web page or contact us by email.
