Welcome! Aikijujitsu  is a mixed martial arts club that focuses on grappling arts, primarily Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and some Aikido. All UW-Madison students are welcome regardless of experience level! Brazilian Jiu Jitsu focuses on grappling, ground-fighting, and submission holds, and is very effective for both self-defense and combat. We also teach Aikido techniques such as striking, blocking, ground fighting, Judo throws, and joint-manipulation techniques. The club focuses on practicing techniques dependent on skill over strength, designed to be practiced by everyone regardless of age or size. No grappling experience is needed and beginners are encouraged to try!
