Fermanagh Ju Jitsu Logo.jpg


We are based in Fermanagh and encompass Lisnaskea Ju Jitsu and the Fermanagh Ju Jitsu Schools Programme as well as a variety of self defence courses and classes. 


Ju Jitsu is a Japanese Martial Art and self defence system which uses a combination of strikes, blocks, holds, locks, chokes and throws to overcome an opponent. It is both an effective form of self defence and a healthy activity for people of all ages. It is primarily a self defence system rather than a combat sport but Fermanagh Ju Jitsu also gives students the opportunity to compete in grappling competitions and kata competitions (not compulsory).


Our training involves a mix of fitness and conditioning, practicing set technique drills and live training (different types of sparring - strikes, grappling and a mix of both).
