The Aberdeen University Ju Jitsu club has been in existence for over 25 years, which makes us the university martial arts club with the longest continuous history. Our fantastic coaches will teach you everything you need to know about self-defence.

We train twice a week during term and usually continue training through the holidays. Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, training is currently suspended. Find us on Facebook to find out when training resumes. 

Wed 6.30-8pm (King's Pavilion, University of Aberdeen)

Fri 7-8.30pm (King's Pavilion, University of Aberdeen)

As a club, we do not compete in regional or national competitions. We are affiliated with the Scottish Ju-Jitsu Society, who organise training seminars throughout the semester which members are encouraged to attend. 


Learning a martial art is a great way to keep fit and improve your self-esteem. We train in a friendly and positive atmosphere and always welcome beginners. Don’t worry if you’ve never done a martial art before, never liked sport at school or don’t feel very fit. We try to pace the training to suit the people there, though we will try to push you.

We are always looking for new members, we hope you come along!
