Jujitsu 700


Jujitsu is one of the oldest forms of self-defence, derived from the martial art technique of the samurai as applied on the battlefield. We retain the ideology that no rules apply on the mats and are not a competitive club, meaning that we practice Jujitsu for the sake of Jujitsu. 

Modern Jujitsu is designed to control - it involves a variety of kicks, strikes, throws and locks which are useful in a real-life situation. Our training sessions are also varied; ranging from open-hand techniques, using weaponry such as tonfa (Japanese melee weapon) and bokken (Japanese wooden sword), to building up stamina and maintaining fitness. More importantly, Jujitsu teaches self-discipline and respect – an attitude that extends into your lifestyle.

Although only founded recently in 2009, the Jujitsu Club has been growing rapidly under the teachings of our sensei, Archie Higgins. Our brand of martial arts is for the world; for making you a better person and in turn, making the world a better place.

Head sensei Archie Higgins is a 6thdan black belt Jujitsu artist. He has over 40 years of experience and is an internationally renowned Jujitsu practitioner. He dedicates his time to the club whilst running his own dojo in Burntisland - which all his students are very much welcome to train at. Sensei Ewan Villiers, a 4thdan black belt, coaches under sensei Archie. He has been practicing martial arts since 1992 and been involved in Jujitsu since 1999.  


Teenage Cancer Trust is a charity close to the heart of the Jujitsu Club, who have raised previously around £1000 through a Slam-a-Thon, in which members of the club practiced throws on one another for 8 hours on rotation. The club also hosted a three-day self-defence course for students at St Andrews, with proceeds going to Teenage Cancer Trust.
