The Kendal club, which is based at Lakes Leisure, is now in it’s 10th year and after an unbelievably successful 12 months, is going from strength to strength.

We have a Tigers section of the club on Fridays, which
is specifically for students aged 5-8, and will also be introducing the New Foxes; a group designed for Parents and 3-4 year olds combined in one class. This is a great chance for Parents and children to get involved, concentrating on motor skills,  discipline, social skills, confidence and improve listening skills within a Self-defence based Ju-Jitsu environment.

From 9 years to adult the students train in the main class, so there is always a great mixture of ages and abilities on the mat at any one time, which makes the session fun. The varied mix keeps the class fresh and with so many people to work with there is always the chance to practice your grapples, locks, strikes and blocks with a new opponent. This ensures your mind stays focused and challenged and you get a full body workout which increases your fitness levels.

With gradings at least twice a year, it has been great to see the progression of so many Kesshin Kai students. From getting their white belt to moving through to orange and above , the change in so many people has been a privilege to witness and be part of.

-Testimonial by – Tom Miles-

“I am 15 years old & have been learning Ju-Jitsu for 7 years and Sport Nunchaku for 3 and a half years.
As well as training in Ju-Jitsu I also train in Nunchaku (made famous by Bruce Lee). In March 2008 10 students including myself and my Sensei Richard Smith (Nunchaku National Coach, 2nd in Europe(2012), 4th in the World(2012) attended the World Nunchaku Championships in Vevy, Switzerland.

I was the youngest competitor in my age category (10 – 13 years) and came 3rd in the world, bringing a bronze medal home for Great Britain.
I was lucky enough to attend the European Championships which was in Switzerland, December 2009
and gained so much experience from the trip.
At the European Championships in Britain in 2010, I was ranked 3rd in Freestyle, obtaining another bronze medal for the UK. I am really looking forward to the World Nunchaku Championships which Sensei Smith is hosting at Lakes Leisure, Kendal in May 2015.

I passed my Junior 1st Dan Black Belt October 2009.

Currently I am working on my Kobudo (traditional weapons), circle work, Atemi point punches & kicks to the body and Anatomy of the Samurai Sword.”

-Testimonial by – Peter Harrison-
Who said you can’t teach an old dog new tricks?

The club at Ambleside truly is a mixed club where young meets old in a respectful and fun environment. I can’t believe I am into my fourth year already with the club. So why Ju-Jitsu for me now in my 40s? The confidence I have gained is immense and add to that, fitness, dis
cipline, friendships and a real sense of achievement through the grading process. As a father an image sticks with me.

 

 

 

A man some years ago, reported as being in the wrong place, wrong time! Assaulted leaving a widow and children without a father. How I wish he could have had the opportunity to learn some basic self-defence techniques, this tragedy could have been so different. Ju-Jitsu has given me a focus in the week where the day to day issues of life and work can be left at the door and the training and dedication can begin. Sensei Smith has the magic ability to work with all ages at all levels to achieve their goals. Young or old, the club has something for everybody – go on, try it!

Classes @ The Kelsick Centre every Sunday.

Carlisle Ju-Jitsu and Nunchaku club was set up back in 2008.

The club has seen many students come through the doors, and some of those students have gone on to take part in competitions abroad,
competing in combat fights in events with 120+ other competitors.

Students have started through all different avenues and for lots of different reasons: some have come for the fitness, others for self-defence knowledge and some for the social aspect but all have gained a level of confidence, achievement and improvement in all aspects of their lives. As an example of this, please find below a student testimonial.
-Testimonial by – Magdalena Ziolo-
Hi!
I’m Magdalena Ziolo and I came from Poland. I’m Fiftteen years old and I was going on ju-jitsu lessons since I lived in Carlisle three years.image 2 I start to really enjoy ju-jitsu lessons and I absolutely love it! When I had my first lesson I found it really challenging and I gave it a try. I also found my sensei is really nice and keen to help which means he’s really helpful. At the beginning I found it hard because I wasn’t quite sure what to do so my sensei was already there for me. He tried to help me and I did my best. Why I always come to this lessons is because it helps me to keep myself confident so I can believe in myself and keep on going, it has really good fitness so it keeps me on the move and fit and it also helps me in self defense skills when needed. Before I didn’t joined ju-jitsu training I was pretty lost, shy, unconfident and weak. Me and my dad found a good activity for me to keep me busy and I thought that it might be an interesting activity to teach me about self defense. Later we both found out how good it is and how much it’s worth to keep me fit and confident.
I saw my sensei showing us some exercises and moves to do and I also saw how self-confident are he’s moves and I think that he’s a really amazing person. I never saw a concentrated, confident as him! Now when I go on ju-jitsu lessons I’m pretty confident and I believe in myself. I have a blue belt grade and I try to work on purple belt. I think it’s an enjoyable lesson for small children, teenagers and adults also at any age. I really recommend the Ju-Jitsu lessons because it’s fun for all children, it has good self-defense skills, it keeps all people on good move and fit and in my opinion it’s fantastic! I really recommend it!

Ghyllside School

Tuesday’s
Juniors-Ju-Jitsu 3.15-4pm

______________

Technique is more important than size or strength

FollowingGhyllside Ju-Jitsu Club on from the success of the self-defence courses I was running last year throughout the 2011.  With the encouragement of Mr Woodburn the head teacher, to initially run self-defence/beginners course for 4 weeks at Ghyllside School, then open an after school club so the students had the opportunity to continue with their Ju-Jitsu training within school.
The course was a huge success, and many students joined the club afterwards. We now have a strong core of students who train on a Tuesday afternoon, from 3.15pm-4pm in the school hall. All the students who have been there from the beginning have gained their first belt, and are well on their way to getting their next belt in July. The rest of the students will be taking their first belt this time around, so a lot of achievements have been gained already in the first year.
If anybody would like to come and see what it’s all about or get involved and have a go themselves, please click here to the register on  the website where you can sign up for the 5 week course on-line. If you have any queries about the club, courses or any other queries, please do not hesitate to contact me on:- Sensei Smith 07718 530346
