Should you miss a session

Covid19 – In-Person Classes 

We have numerous additional Risk Assessments and Policies in place to ensure we remain a Covid safe environment, the details are here; www.leicesterjujitsu.co.uk/covid  - As of Monday 16th August 2021 wear a face mask is now OPTIONAL.

We also have a system for booking in to make sure that classes are not overfull, please book ALL your lessons via this link; 




Please let us know your full height in centimetres, so that we can either allocate your uniform, or order it if we don’t have stock. We usually keep at least 2 uniforms of every regular size in stock, but during busy recruitment times we can run out.   

You are expected to wear a clean, ironed and tidy uniform at each and every class and seminar we run – unless the coach states otherwise, like for a Self-Defence seminar or outside training. 



We would love to have more students just like you, so who do you know that could benefit from one of our classes?;

  • LJJ Little Dragons 2.5-6 years 

  • LJJ Dragon Warriors 6-14years

  • LJJ Martial Arts Adults – Ju Jitsu and Self-Defence for 15+ years

  • LJJ Ladies Only Kickboxing 13+ years

We pay a £20 referral bonus for everyone you introduce to us who then goes on to join one of our regular classes, be it family member, partner, neighbour, friend or stranger!



You now have 12 months membership of LJJ Martial Arts and of our National Governing Body the British Ju Jitsu Association. This also entitles you to 12 months member to member insurance should you get injured or injure someone else – very rare at LJJ but it is a contact sport so can happen. This is renewed annually at a fee of;

  • £25 for LJJ Little Dragons

  • £45 for Dragon Warriors, Ladies Kickboxing and Adult Ju Jitsu


Online Portal

As part of your membership with LJJ you also have access to our Online Library of syllabus videos, this is accessed here;

  • www.leicesterjujitsu.co.uk

  • “Student Portal & Shop” at the top of the page

  • Please login with your surname and date of birth

  • Top left “Syllabus Videos” – You only need concern yourself with the Beginner Section at this stage




We would be very sad to see you leave, each student who joins us, we have high hopes that they will achieve Black Belt and beyond, and become an important and valuable member of the Coaching Team. However, we understand that in this world things are thrown at us that can derail your plans. 

First of all, please talk to us, the coaches are trained and experienced. If your regular coach is not available, or maybe they did something that offended you, then please speak to one of the other team or the Head Coach Sensei Rob Phelps on 07847-464482 or sensei@leicesterjujitsu.co.uk – he will do everything in his power to help you remain with us. 

Should you need to cancel your membership with us, please give us at least 1 months’ notice, as this is a requirement of our payment provider. It also gives us an opportunity to work with you and hopefully fix whatever is broken.  


Finally, do not forget us, we have had students leave us at Brown Belt and return 12 years later and complete their Black Belt! So anything is possible. 


We are excited for you, and eagerly looking forward to leading you on your Martial Arts journey, as the famous quote by Lao Tzu says “A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step”.
