Getting Started

All you need to get started is a T shirt and a pair of track suit bottoms or shorts.

If you like it the club can source you a Gi (the white pyjama suit) or you can buy your own.

You will be asked to fill out a simple licence form for insurance purposes before your first session but will not have to pay a licence fee for two weeks, so you can be sure you want to continue.

FAQ

How do I find out more?

Contact the club at which you want to train – all of their details are on the relevant club page

What do I need to wear?

All you need to get started is a T shirt and a pair of track suit bottoms or shorts. Prior to training you would need to remove (or tape) any jewellery.

If, after trying Ju-Jitsu, you decide you want to continue – the club can source you a Gi (the white pyjama suit) or you can buy your own directly.

What commitment do I need to make?

The only commitment we ask if that you come on the mat and try it… we want you have the opportunity to try Ju-Jitsu without expense or other pressures. The first 2 session will be free.

You will be asked to fill out a simple licence form for insurance purposes before your first session.

Do I need to attend every session?

No. We all have other commitments too… try to attend any sessions that you can, obviously the more you train the faster you learn, but it’s up to you.

What does it cost?

Each club works as a community club, and recovers their costs – that means mat fees are slightly different at each club.

We are a community club, and none of our instructors are paid – this fee goes to venue-hire, insurance and purchasing any equipment the club needs.

I already hold a belt in another style – can I keep it?

We try to use common-sense…

If you already have experience in another style then Sensei Lemar will try to work out with you how similar that style is to ours and what level of experience/knowledge of our syllabus you already have.

Am I too old / young etc. ?

Our oldest student is 50-ish (he won’t tell us his real age) and our youngest student is 10.  Whatever your circumstances we will try to help you adapt the techniques to your own capabilities.  This doesn’t just apply to old/young people – we all need to learn to adapt the techniques as best works for us.

Will this make me invincible?

No. Size and strength really do make a difference, and there will always be somebody bigger/stronger/better than you.  It will however increase your options should the worst happen, and the improved confidence and ability to manage an environment should make that less likely.
