Intro Sessions

ki_masu_bEdinburgh Jitsu runs a series of introductory sessions three or four times a year. We are also trialling the running of a dedicated beginner ‘taster’ session once a month.  If you want to try out training you should come to one these sessions. Once you’ve attended an introductory session you can come to as few or as many sessions as you like.

Introductory sessions are really good fun and very popular, you don’t have to do anything you don’t want to try.

Next Beginners Sessions:

All sessions are held at St Stephen’s Community Hall, EH3 5AB

The next set of beginners sessions will run as follows:

Sunday 31st August 3-5pm

Fri 6th Sept 7-9pm

Sun 8th Sept NOT ON (Sensei Ben and Gunar will both be away)

Fri 13th Sept 7-9pm ( WILL NOT BE ON – don’t try jitsu for the first time on Friday the 13th!)

Sun 15th Sept 3-5pm

Wed 18th Sept 7-9pm

St Stephens Stockbridge

untitled-179x300It’s best to turn up a few minutes early for your first session to give you time to fill in a health questionnaire.
Alternatively you can download the form here and fill it in before you come.

There is no need to book an introductory session, please feel free to just turn up. You should wear whatever you’d normally wear to the gym, anything loose and comfortable. We don’t wear shoes, socks, or any jewellery on the mat.

If you have just missed a beginner period it may be worth emailing the club to see whether they have any spaces yet. Although rare, we do sometimes accept students outwith beginner sessions.

Edinburgh Jitsu also offers classes for young people aged 11-18 years. For more information on Edinburgh Jitsu Youth, please look here.

Please print out and complete our Health form and Registration form, bring them along with you to your first session. To download both forms please click here
