Intro to Jujutsu

The Australian National University Jujutsu Club (ANUJJC) introductory course is a great way to learn traditional Japanese jujutsu. This martial art originated during Japan’s feudal era and its purpose was to defend against armed and unarmed opponents.

Jujutsu does not depend on strength and speed, but instead relies on good technique and an understanding of human biomechanics. The training we provide is suitable for men and women – you will learn basic self-defence and situational awareness; improve your self-confidence and physical conditioning; and be taught methods of striking, locking the joints, take-downs, grappling, throwing and falling safely.

No previous martial arts experience is necessary. The training is not directed towards competition; instead you will work together in a cooperative environment to learn and improve your abilities.

About the ANUJJC
The ANUJJC has been affiliated with the ANU since 1976. It is the only martial arts club to have won the ANU Club of the Year award twice.

The Club is a member of the International Jujutsu Institute (IJJI), which was founded in 1956 by Professor Kam Hock Hoe. The IJJI has clubs in Australia, Malaysia and Norway, and is affiliated with the Australian Jujitsu Federation – the governing body for jujutsu and associated martial arts in Australia.
