Regionals & Nationals 2016!

Plenty to get excited for this year.  First up it the regional on Saturday 30th January at London Nautical School (details here)

Then one month later (27th & 28th Feb) it’s Nationals time.  Those of you that missed the last Nationals have a second chance to experience a weekend of jitsu greatness.  Training in the mornings, competitions in the afternoons and an orange juice on the Saturday night.

The competition is split by grade, gender and weight so you won’t be put against someone twice your size, and you’ll be training with people with roughly the same experience level as you.  If you are interested and want to know more, ask someone with a coloured belt at the next session

Training is back on!

Hope everyone had an awesome Christmas break and is ready to burn off some turkey/pies/pizza etc.  We’re back training Mondays and Wednesdays, so come along and join the fun.

Christmas Break

Training is now done for 2015.  We hope you have enjoyed the sessions, and will see you back on the mat in the New Year.

First session back is Monday 11th January 2016.  Until then have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Christmas Training!

The end of term approaches…

Final session for 2015 will be on Wednesday 16th December.  It will be a shared session with DKK (the guys who occupy the other half of the sports hall while we train) so will be a lot of fun with lots of new people to train with.  After that will be the traditional Christmas Orange Juice.

First session of the New Year will be announced in due course.
