Ninjutsu is an inclusive martial art club, open to all skill levels, from complete beginner to black belt. Everyone is given the opportunity to train together, regardless of skill-set, allowing everyone to improve and gain experience at their own pace. During our training sessions, we learn ancient Japanese techniques, both armed and unarmed, as well as more applicable self-defence techniques in a relaxed and non-competitive atmosphere. The techniques taught within Ninjutsu aim to develop body self-awareness and how to move your body for defence against confrontations.
If you’re interested in joining an inclusive and social martial arts club, Ninjutsu is the one for you!
Facts about UoB Ninjutsu
Every year, the club runs a week long training retreat in the countryside in Wales to get to know each other better and learn new interesting techniques.
How to get involved
Come along to one or both of our taster sessions to get a feel for the more relaxed martial arts atmosphere. They will be on Tuesday 24 September 2019, 7.30 – 9.30pm and Sunday 29 September 2019, 11am – 1pm.
Membership for the 2019/20 academic year will be £115 for students and £130 for non students. This covers term 1 and 2. Term 3 will be done on a pay-as-you-go basis due to it being during exam season, with training usually being less frequent.
Please note that on top of the club fee there is a £16 fee that covers personal accident insurance when training or competing for the University, access to free cross-training sessions such as circuits and yoga, as well as a contribution to the costs of affiliation to various national governing bodies. This fee is only payable once so if you did decide to join a second club then you would not need to pay a second fee.
