    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:

    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.
