Ju-Jitsu is a martial arts that concentrates on technique rather than brute force. Although Ju-Jitsu was developed in medieval Japan, the martial art has gained great popularity amongst the police and armed forces as a practical form of self defence to meet the needs of today's society.

Ju-Jitsu skills can be applied by men, women and children to counter aggressive situations ranging from harassment to armed physical assault. The nucleus of the art is made up a system of throws, joint locks and strikes based on the principal of using an aggressor's negative energy to their own disadvantage.

Onna Ju-Jitsu Club has been established since 2000 and has become one of Yorkshire's most successful organisations with over 600 students training in Bradford and surrounding districts. We are a diverse and friendly club and welcome anyone who wishes to learn the art of Ju-Jitsu in a fun, safe and friendly environment.
