Our Clubs

Here are some Details about the clubs that are currently affiliated to the English Jiu Jitsu Federation.

As you can see the English Jiu Jitsu Federation is not just made up of Jiu Jitsu Clubs – We affiliate with all martial arts disciplines and this definitely sets us apart from other martial arts federations.

Our Clubs can run as independent martial arts clubs training in their specific discipline yet we can then learn from one another when we meet up for EJJF courses and our members find this interaction with other martial arts disciplines very useful and insightful – picking out useful points from the various instructors that teach on the courses.

We invite any club interested in joining our federation to complete our application form – Click Here for club application, and we will get right back to you with our requirements.

We utilize: Striking, grappling, locking, ground fighting, weapons, self – defense and Jiu Jitsu can claim to be the original Mixed Martial Arts.

Jigero Kano founded the art of Karno Jiu Jitsu (early Judo). The style incorporates the best techniques form a variety of Jiu Jitsu schools of the time with the philosophy of mutual welfare and personal development.

Modern Judo has evolved into a grappling sport. Our style of Kano Jiu Jitsu had maintained the original teachings while also incorporating influences form other arts. The wide range of techniques include striking, locking, grappling and ground-work, knife and short stick.

Jiu (or Ju) means yielding, flowing (soft), applying your own energy to the attacking energy to perform the technique (ju-no-sen). This is in contrast to other martial arts whose dynamic opposes or attacks the opponents energy (go-no-sen). Although both are applicable to our style, Ju is generally more emphasised.
