We’re a Japanese Jiu Jitsu Club based in the centre of Cardiff. 

Jiu Jitsu is a traditional Japanese martial art which relies on technique rather than strength to defend against one or multiple opponents of any size, weight, and gender. This martial art has survived the past couple centuries and morphed from a battlefield martial art to an effective form of modern-day self-defence.

You will learn how to defend punches, grabs, weapons, and more while you’re with us.

The style of Jiu Jitsu we practice at Cardiff City Jitsu is called Seishin Mizu Ryu Ju Jutsu and is led by Richard Beasley. He has over 15 years Jiu Jitsu experience under his belt and is 3rd degree black belt with the Sport England Governing Body the BJJAGB. Our dojo is a governing body centre of excellence in South Wales.

There is a good mix of men and women across a wide age range who train in our friendly classes and we welcome beginners and experienced students alike.

Whatever your ability, our fundamental Jiu Jitsu program will allow you to easily get to grips with our system so you can progress to our advanced level classes with a solid foundation. If you’re looking for self-defence, a new martial art, or a new hobby to gradually build strength and stamina, come to one of our taster sessions and start your journey.
