Why is it good for me?
Jui-Jitsu teaches you situational awareness and self defence. It can help to improve strength, cardiovascular health, coordination and poster. You may also find it helps to increase your confidence, leadership and social circle!
How much does it cost?
Costs vary between clubs, but they usually offer monthly or quarterly payment options which brings the cost down.
What equipment do I need?
It is best to wear loose comfortable clothing that you can move around and get a bit hot and sweaty in. Tracksuit bottoms and a t-shirt are ideal but as long as clothing isn’t too restrictive, it doesn’t really matter.
Because Jiu Jitsu is a contact sport, for safety reasons you should also remove or secure any jewellery and tie your hair back if it is long.
After a few weeks you might want to buy a white training suit (gi) but this is not essential at first.
