Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Welcome to NTU Brazilian Jiu Jitsu!
Welcome to NTU Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, part of the fastest growing clubs at the University – the sport is fun, challenging and teaches effective self-defence, all in a fun friendly team environment.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art which specialises in the grappling aspect of combat, with the overarching goal of becoming effective in self-defence.
Our focus is prioritised on three fundamentals: Providing a diverse friendly team environment, learning self-defence, and giving students an outlet to compete under the NTU banner.
We cater for both beginners and experienced members. All are welcomed to represent the University at competitive level, where there are competitions which consist of categories that range from Beginner to Advanced. We have a host of members that simply train for self-defence, fitness and fun. NTU BJJ have been crowned UKBJJA National Champions for the last 5 years running, which we have been fortunate to host in 2019. We are proud of this status and look forward for the new recruits to maintain it.
Head coach, Giuseppe Lannucci, is a brown belt with 20-years wrestling experience which builds solid foundations for your Jiu-Jitsu game.
Gradings take place throughout the year so your commitment could see you progress through the belts.

Monday – City Sports Hall, 20:00 - 21:30
