How many nights a week would I need to train?

Two nights a week is optimum for a beginner, however some students are unable to offer this commitment. One night a week is adequate although you may find it will take longer to progress through the belts following the syllabus.

Is it expensive?

No, or at least not compared to many other extra-curricular activities. Prices for lessons may vary slightly from club to club, depending on running costs. You don’t need to buy expensive equipment to start off with. You can start classes with shorts and Tee-shirts, or a track suit. When you decide that you want to do WJJF Ju Jitsu and to go for gradings, then it would be worthwhile getting a suit. These are called “Gi’s”. Other costs include gradings and badges. There are plenty of other things to buy if you wish. Please see our list of stock. Items can be ordered through the instructor of your nearest club.

Will my child get hurt?

Ju Jitsu is a contact sport, but it does have less instance of injury than a contact sport such as rugby or even cricket. One thing that should help assure any concerned parent is that ALL instructors in the WJJF have coaching qualifications and first aid in addition to their black belts. ALL our instructors are properly insured. No one attempts a technique beyond their capabilities and experience. Students are fully supervised at all times. As far as “does it hurt” is concerned, when the techniques are applied properly I would say no. Take a look at a class, see how many young people go on for their gradings. If they were getting hurt, they wouldn’t come back.

What order do the belts come in?

White, yellow, orange, green, blue & white, blue, purple, brown & white, brown and black. A full syllabus is avaialable for members

How long does it take to get to black belt?

Four years in WJJF Ireland. This is longer than most styles but we don’t believe you can rush perfection.

Can I train in more than one club?

Yes. The same syllabus is taught in each club and therefore allows the student to train in as many clubs as he/she wishes, although s/he must have a principal club through which s/he will have membership and that coach will be the designated coach responsible for his/her training and progression through the gradings.

If I’ve already trained in another style of Ju-jitsu, do I need to start at the beginning again?

Obviously all styles are different and you would have to learn the syllabus from white belt, from a safety point of view. However you may be able to progress faster through the belts if proof of training in a compatible style could be given. Each case will be taken on its on merits.

If I’m a World Ju-jitsu instructor recently moved to Ireland – can I open a club?

World Ju-jitsu Ireland is always looking for new clubs and would be happy to discuss with any Coach the opening of a new Club - just contact us

My home circumstances are changing and I believe another WJJF club would be more suitable to train at on a long-term basis, what should I do about changing my principal membership to another club?

Ask the instructor of your current principal club for a ClubTransfer form, which s/he will help you complete, and then send this to our office.
