Martial Arts


Ju-Jutsu is a Japanese martial art that originated on the battlefields hundreds of years ago.

Here are some the types of moves and actions associated with Ju-Jutsu:

  • Throws
  • Locks
  • Chokes
  • Strangles
  • Kicks
  • Punches
  • Strikes
  • Pressure points
  • Weapons
  • Kuatsu (Japanese first aid)

It is suitable for most ages, sizes and strengths, once a reasonable level of fitness, health and flexibility is present. It’s also a great way to learn self-protection whilst also getting fit and gaining strength.

Ju-Jutsu will improve your co-ordination, balance, flexibility and speed.

The classes at Universal Gym are taught by qualified black belts, who are also trained coaches and teach in a friendly, positive manner, making learning much easier and more fun.


Kids Martial Arts

At Universal Gym, our foundation for teaching children is based around teamwork and boosting self-confidence. Through fun based exercises and games. This allows children to learn much more easily because they’re having fun and feel more relaxed.

Throughout their first years of training, children will learn about balance, co-ordination, flexibility, self-confidence, self-esteem and awareness of the students around them. Our aim is to improve all of these skills.

The techniques we teach children include kicks, punches,throws, break-falls, and Kata. In addition to the physical techniques of Ju-Jutsu, we also teach about anatomy and ‘Stranger Danger’ awareness techniques, which is a very valuable lesson that can keep children safe right through to their adult lives.
