Rushcroft Jiu-Jitsu Club has been the base for the Independent Jiu-Jitsu Organisation since it was founded. We open three nights a week and we are here from 6:15 pm through to 9:00 pm. For more information on what classes are on please view our schedule.

If you are considering Jiu-Jitsu for the first time, but you’re a bit nervous, then why not come down and watch, have a chat and see if it is something you fancy.

We have a lot of classes specifically just for children and teenagers, these are on a bit earlier in the night and last an hour. Jiu-Jitsu is a great way of helping your kids with their confidence, discipline and focus.
