Welcome to Impact Self Defence and Ju Jitsu Wigan

We welcome students from any age and background, and our many years experience, coupled with a vast amount of knowledge enables us to bring out the very best in students of any ability.
Impact Self Defence was born through a group of like minded individuals practising martial arts of different forms. We focus on the reality of personal and practical self defence, while still recognising the traditional forms and techniques.
We hold regular weekly Ju Jitsu Classes for both children and adults in our own Dojo which is located in Appley Bridge, on the outskirts of Wigan, though we also travel throughout the North West of England to carry out Group Lessons for Schools, Colleges, or other organisations.

Syllabus and Approach
The actual techniques of Ju Jitsu are aimed at self defence, therefore, there are no limits placed on one’s technical repertoire. This can range from the use of kicks, punches and blows with the elbows and knees, to the use of screening, articular pressure, ground wrestling, defence from “white” weapons (non firearms) such as knives and clubs, and making use of the knowledge of the numerous vulnerable points of the body. Even though it is principally a hand-to-hand combat method, the practice of traditional weapons (KOBUDO) like the Katana, the stick or club, the Nunchaku, Sai, Tonfa, Kama, etc., completes the vast technical repertoire.
We teach Ju Jitsu with a firm foundation of respect, both towards each other, and to the art that has been handed down from instructor to student over generations.
We strive to make our club a fun and friendly place to train, and welcoming to all. To learn Ju Jitsu requires students to apply themselves in a careful and thoughtful manner at all times, both inside and outside of the Dojo.
All we ask is that you come with a smile, an open mind for learning, and a desire to improve yourself and do the very best you can.
Impact Self Defence have Public Liability Insurance in place for all our students. However, as the welfare of our Ju Jitsu and Self Defence students is paramount at all times, unlike many other Martial Arts establishments Impact Self Defence also have additional insurance in place through the British Ju Jitsu Association which covers all our students via Profesional Indemnity.

Great tutors (sensei’s), open and approachable. Always helped to break down a technique and make it manageable for a beginner. I’d still be training with them now if my circumstances made it possible.
Fantastic place for children to train. Our two boys been training here for 2 years now and love it.
I’m 50 year old and overweight, however I’ve been made very welcome, additionally, they have had the patience to train me and assist in my Ju Jitsu journey. Highly recommended.
