Jiu-Jitsu is a Martial Art originating from Japan. Often referred to as the gentle art. It’s focus is on manipulating your opponents strength and energy, rather than using your own strength against them.

The main areas Jiu-Jitsu focuses on are pins, joint locks, and throws. All using your opponents strength against them. Modern Jiu-Jitsu still focuses on the same key areas, with throws, locks being at the forefront of what we teach.


IJJO was established in 2009. We offer outstanding, friendly instruction in the ancient martial art of Jiu-Jitsu. Using modern techniques we provide a safe environment to learn.

We offer independence to any affiliated club or association. We will not interfere with your day to day lives. Our syllabus is structured so that it is adaptable for the use of any student no matter what age or build.

We hope that you are as proud to be members of the IJJO as we are to preside over it.

As the day progresses you will see people being called through to the curtained area, this is not done in belt order, so don't worry if you don't go through at the same time as others of the same belt.
