Yes. Jiu Jitsu uses your opponents balance against themselves and therefore is great for both men and women as a realistic and effective form of self defence. You may want to look at the way this works
It's best to wear something that's comfortable and loose. Don't wear anything that you mind getting stretched; T-shirt and tracksuit bottoms are fine.
The instructor, will introduce himself to you and answer any questions you may have.
Everyone will then get on the mat and be guided through a warm-up, stretches, and games to improve awareness, reaction, stamina and fitness.
Everyone will then line up, in order of belt grade, to start the class.
The class itself consists of demonstration and practice of the techniques of our system.
The instructor will then end the class by taking everyone through a brief cool down and having us line up once again.
We try to keep prices down as much as possible in line with our policy of being an inclusive club. Costs are summarised as follows:
Membership (inc. insurance) is £26

Training fees are dependent if you are waged/unwaged and how many times per week you wish to train. Try a FREE class and afterwards speak to the club instructor.
You only have to become a member after a week or so, when you know Jiu Jitsu's something you want to do. Your first class is free, so you should join in rather than just watch.
No, sessions are gradual and tailored to your individual abilities. Anyone can train - male/female, tall/short, big/small - Jiu Jitsu is not about strength but relies on technique.
Just come along to one of the training sessions! If you can please let us know your coming beforehand so we can have some literature for you to take away after your first session. If you have any questions, you can contact leicester jiu jitsu
