Open to ALL. We teach simple practical self defence in a safe and friendly environment. Great way to build confidence, get fit and meet new friends.
This multi award winning Aston Jiu Jitsu Club is the home of the National Atemi Champions 2009 and multiple National Atemi Open Championships. In 2010, we achieved a historic Grand Slam where every belt promotion from Yellow to 3rd Dan was gained within a single academic year. This feat won us the coveted Club of the Year 2010.
Founded in 1989 by Sensei Milan Ilic, Aston Jitsu club is based at Aston University. This places the club not only in the heart of the UK but also in the heart of Birmingham. Aston Jitsu is a member of The Jitsu Foundation. The Jitsu Foundation is the largest single body of Jiu Jitsu clubs in the UK.
The club which is located in the Birmingham city centre has around 30 core members, but with strong links to other the Jitsu Foundation clubs in the region. You would be forgiven for thinking there were many more. Since 1999 the club has been taught and lead by Sensei Eric Lau, who has ensured that the club continues its tradition of both training and playing hard.
Training takes place in a safe environment with a friendly atmosphere that encourages everyone, male and female, novice to senior grade, who steps into our dojo to learn, at a pace that suits them. The success of this club can easily be judged not only by the quality of teaching on the mat but also by the number of senior grades and instructors it has produced in the past 15 years.
One of the best clubs ever; we train hard and play harder!
Jitsu is a great martial art, if you want to learn how to defend yourself come down and try it out.
The first session is FREE so there's nothing to lose!
We also run two FREE sessions during Aston Freshers Week, and have a stall at the Aston Freshers fair where you can come and ask us anything you like in the Sports Hall of the Sir Doug Ellis Sports Centre.
You can join whether you're a Student or not, contact the secretary Laura Hallmark from the email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need ANYTHING!
If you decide to become a member, membership is £40. If you are a student, the Students Union will charge you £15 for affiliation (This is true for every single club) however, once this is paid, you dont have to pay it again for any other club for the whole year, so if you have already joined another club, you will not need to pay this.
