University of Exeter Jiu Jitsu Club

Ever considered trying a martial art?

Exeter University Jiu Jitsu is the largest martial arts club on campus, offering a high standard of training within a very sociable atmosphere. We are the university branch of "Seishin Mizu Ryu Tatakai Jutsu" - the Water Mind School of Fighting Arts, founded by Dr Richard Catterick, a 5th Dan Black Belt based here in Exeter.  Jiu Jitsu is a highly effective form of self-defence for both men and women of all sizes and ability. All it takes is a desire to improve; no egos permitted! Our discipline covers a wide range of skills including:

  • Street defence from unarmed attacks and crude weapons (bottles, knives, blunt objects)
  • Technical skills such as throws and joint locks
  • Competition based styles such as free-style Randori and groundwork based Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ)

Increase fitness and confidence as you train and progress through the belts. Our annual Nationals also present the opportunity to test your skills in a competitive arena.  Our training is divided between the University Sports Park and Dr Catterick’s custom built Dojo in Exeter just a short walk from campus.  Overall, Exeter University Jiu Jitsu caters for all aspirations, whether you want to keep fit, meet new people or just try something new.
