Swansea Uni Jiu Jitsu Club
Welcome to Jiu Jitsu! We are a martial arts club that welcomes anyone of any ability, regardless of whether you have any martial arts experience or not.
We teach a modern form of the traditional Japanese martial art Jiu Jitsu, which simply described is:
- Defensive techniques, using an attacker’s momentum against them
- Traditionally based – spectacular traditional throws
- Locks, strikes and throws adapted for modern day contexts
- Elements of grappling and groundfighting as seen in BJJ too
- Sparring and applying techniques to high pressure situations
Our Training days and times are:
- Tuesday 17:30 - 19:30
- Friday 17:30 - 19:30
Location: The Pavillion, Sketty, Swansea SA2 8QB (beside Swansea Bay Sports Park and National Pool)
Beginners are welcomed and your first 2 sessions are completely free, after that you'll be required to purchase a membership to carry on training with us. For your first session, all you need to do is come in comfortable sports/gym wear (or a gi if you have one) and bring water :)
From crazy themed nights out and dressed up dinners to beach cleans and board game cafe visits, we have plenty of chances to wind down and socialise off the mat and there is always something for everybody. JC's is our main spot we head to after training for a chill catch up, drink/coffee and sometimes karaoke!
We have a lot in store for you this year and are so excited to share with you. All social and sober socials will be posted on our social media, so keep an eye out on our instagram ;) @jiujitsu_swansea
Events and Achievements
We attend 2 national competitions a year, Atemis and Randoris, which are an amazing opportunity to showcase skills, compete with students from across the country, learn from the best Sensei's in the UK and enjoy a residential weekend trip and with the club. At the 2023 Randoris everybody who attended returned with a medal.
As well as that we host free womens self defence sessions for non-members and anybody who would like to learn some real-life effective self defence techiques. We have regular gradings for club members to climb to the next belt, from white belt all the way to brown and black belt.
