About Us

What do we teach?

World Ju Jitsu Federation Ireland teaches a mix of kicking, punching throws and locks. The system has evolved from a combination of old Ju Jitsu styles and has developed over the years into a comprehensive self defence system.

Our experience

David Toney (7th Dan master) has been involved in teaching Ju Jitsu for over 25 years and heads a team of highly skilled and highly motivated instructors. All the instructors at WJJ (Ireland) are fully qualified black belts with years of coaching experience. All of our instructors have been police vetted, hold full professional training qualifications, and are fully insured, qualified first aiders.

We have over 70 clubs throughout Ireland and are part of the World Ju Jitsu Federation which has member countries all over the world. We not only offer you an opportunity to train in one of our clubs but also have courses and seminars throughout the year and offer private lessons and self defence courses.

We are also experienced in working with schools through our award-winning Schools Programme and are available for demonstrations and special events of all kinds."
