Ghyllside School


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
