Martial Arts - Chelmsford


Martial Arts - Self Defence

Welcome to the Martial Arts page! Your coach has trained in a variety of backgrounds. The idea of this society is to bring together the core aspects that we believe are essential in self defence. 

- Jiu Jitsu (throwing, grappling, weapons work, locks)

- Kempo (throwing, striking, kicking, weapons work)

- General awareness and classic self defence

*Social Membership - This membership can be purchased by members who wish to join social activities but do not want to join any training sessions. You will not be able to train without activities insurance and a full standard membership*


Hello! Hope you've all been keeping well!

We're glad to say we're back again this year although with some restrictions for the 1st trimester at least!

Due to COVID-19, we're requesting that you bring a DATED negative lateral flow test due to the reduced social distancing available in martial arts. Lateral flows can be ordered for free via this link.

We will be training in Sawyer’s Gym on Thursdays from 5-7pm. 2 taster sessions will be avaiable to freshers, however activities insurance is required. Please email or go to the SU if you can't purchase this online. 

Please wear gym clothing for your first two taster sessions before you get your membership. For the first 10 members we will be giving out a FREE Martial Arts Society t-shirt. For those who train regularly, we ask that you purchase a martial art Gi from us which will be heavily subsidised. Please do feel free to wear your own Gi for the first couple of sessions, however after our taster sessions we request that you purchase one of ours for uniformity of the society.

We cannot stress enough, if you feel under the weather please DO NOT come to the training session, even if you have a negative lateral flow as you will be putting others at risk and will potentially face university repercussions. We will be happy to run a Teams session for you so you can still get involved.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!

Very best wishes,

Your Martial Arts Committee
