I started Ju Jitsu in 2011 with the intention of going for one session with my other half to keep him company and stop him being the new guy. Almost four years later and I’m hooked!
After just one session I was so impressed with what I learned and what I could be taught to do that I was excited to go back for the next session.
I have become fitter, lost weight and got stronger from learning Ju Jitsu. As one of the females in the club I am always treated the same as the rest of the club and I have learnt so much to increase my confidence and self-defence skills.
I decided to take up jujitsu in September 2014. As a woman I was really nervous that I wouldn’t fit in, however my two friends and I went along for a class with Bexley Jujitsu. I was correct in my assumptions that there were a majority of male students and everyone in the class, including the other women, all had a high level of fitness. However, I was wrong to assume that we would not fit in.
Everyone was beyond accommodating and approached us to introduce themselves. They encouraged us throughout the intense work out at the beginning and had patience when helping us learn the syllabus work....
After talking about finding a martial art for years, my wife came home with a Bexley Jujitsu leaflet from the local gym, that was August 2011. A few weeks later I went to the opening night and really liked what I saw, and here I am some years down the line, a brown and white belt.
Sensei Andrew is a brilliant instructor who's no nonsense teaching style is thorough and he pushes each individual to strive for their best. He is supportive of everyone's learning ability and will happily spend as much time as you need, on the different techniques in the syllabus.
I wanted to let you and your collegues at your club know how happy I am with Grace's progress. She started nearly 3 years ago now and was quite a timid, gentle and unconfident child. Being an only child my wife and I wanted her to mix with other children, toughen her up and gain confidence. I can honestly say this has been achieved and some.
As a family we were looking at some old photos at the wkend when Grace 1st got her yellow belt. In the photo she wasnt really smiling although I know she was pleased, she was standing at the back and not looking at the camera. We then came to a...
I joined Bexley Jujitsu in April 2013; being 37 at the time and not particularly fit, I was cautious as to whether I would fit in or be able to handle starting a martial art. I needn’t have worried, as I found that everyone in the club was very friendly, always helpful and would often encourage other club members during the warm up or through learning new techniques.
It is a very physically demanding class, starting off with a 20-30 minute warm up, usually followed by syllabus work, then ending with either Randori (constant throws) or Kumite (sparing – either standing or including take downs...
My son started Jujitsu in 2012 (?), when he was in Year 3 at school. At this time he was finding school quite difficult and this was having a negative impact on his self-confidence.
After a short time at Bexley Jujitsu, it became obvious that he responded well to this form of self-defence and the teaching style. Teaching at Bexley Jujitsu instils discipline and yet maintains an informality that makes students relaxed, confident and self-motivated.
Over the first 12 months at Bexley Jujitsu my son's self-confidence improved significantly. He had found something at which he could excel....
