Hando Ju Jitsu Beginners

 

Sensei Jackie Walker - 3rd Dan Teaching at Hando Harlow

Hando Jikishin Ju Jitsu Clubs welcome beginners of all ages. Ju Jitsu is fun, practical,and will have a number of benefits including getting fitter, improved reflexes, improved self confidence and, of course, self defence.

Located at Harlow, Essex and Ongar, Essex the clubs appeal to a wide range of people, male and female, from 5 to 75 years old. Concessions are available to the unemployed and pensioners. Training can be paid for weekly, monthly or at the start of each lesson.

Beginners White & Yellow Belts working together

For beginners the process for starting Ju Jitsu is simple: Firstly, you need to turn up at a training session (pretty obvious that one), complete a Jikishin Ju Jitsu Association Membership Form, the only clothing required is a pair of jogging bottoms and a T-shirt, we'll then take you through Mat Etiquette (the rules of the Dojo or Training Place), Breakfalls (how to fall safely when being thrown) and then on to the first techniques in the White Belt Syllabus.

There will be some striking & kicking instruction and practice, and you may well learn some street self defence techniques, or skills fighting on the ground (the majority of street fights end up on the ground). These are taught in a manner that is friendly to the novice, but that can still be enjoyed, employed and practiced by the higher grades. In Hando Ju Jitsu we all practice together, whatever the grade.
Personal hygiene is positively encouraged, and out of respect to training partners, students should arrive at club clean, ensure that fingernails and toenails are short, and that training clothing is clean and fresh.

You will learn some Japanese Terminology like Sensei (Teacher), Rei (bow) and Yamae (stop immediately) - but not too much, we use mostly English. You will learn some Kata, some Traditional Japanese Weapons and some things not generally taught in traditional Ju Jitsu classes, for instance we discuss the Law as it relates to Self Defence, stances and body language, conflict resolution, and much, much more. For more information, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions section.

Hando Ju Jitsu Junior Warriors

Hando Jikishin Junior Ju Jitsu Clubs have been running since 1979 and have built a solid reputation for the quality of training and the discipline of the students.

Ongar Junior Class - Novice Kata

In order to progress a student must show regular attendance, train diligently and perform the techniques taught in a safe and controlled manner. A progress sheet is issued to each student in order to keep a record of their achievement in each belt - it is the responsibility of the student to look after and ensure that they bring their record sheets to club.

Located in Essex at Harlow and Ongar, the clubs appeal to a wide range of young people from 5 to 16 years old. The club is open throughout the school holidays.

Hando Warriors Competition Club - 5 to 16 years

Monday 6:00pm to 7:0pm This specialist Club for those who wish to compete in the Jikishin / UKMAGB Annual National Championships.
The Junior Competition Club for those who wish to compete in Kata, Groundfighting, Sparring and Random Attacks, starts at 6.15pm at Mark Hall on Monday 5th September 2016 and will run through to Monday 31st October 2016.

 

Hando Mini Warriors

NOTE: Mini-Warrior Numbers are Limited so please call before bringing your child along.

The Mini Warriors class is designed for children from 4 years to 7 years old, and has a different approach. With younger children concentration levels are often an issue. The Mini Warriors class is designed to bring the smaller kids into Ju Jitsu through a route that includes more Ju Jitsu type games, bringing out a competitive spirit in a very controlled environment, and instilling discipline. This prepares the youngsters for the Warriors class. Rewards for improving skills, working on the Jikishin White and Yellow Belt syllabus, learning to breakfall, and learning their first Kata, are given, as well as rewards for good behaviour. This gives the youngsters the incentive to work hard and achieve their goals. Whatever the age, the children are encouraged to work hard, and on reaching the age of 7, or achieving Orange Belt, the child will move into the Hando Warrior class.

Hando Warriors

Monday - Harlow - 7:15pm to 8:15pm - £5.00 per lesson
(From Monday 6th February 2017 - 6:15pm to 7:15pm- £5.00 per lesson)

Tuesday - Harlow - 6:15pm to 7:15pm- £5.00 per lesson

 

The Warriors class is for older children, either those who have come through the Mini Warriors system, or just beginning Ju Jitsu. From 7 years to 16 years old, the Hando Warriors concentrate on the Jikishin Syllabus, learning the same techniques (with a few exceptions) as the adults, and prepare them for achieving the ultimate goal of a Black Belt. The skills are practical and transferable, and gives the children self confidence, self control and an understanding of the discipline required to achieve success. The Warriors class also has a reward system, and the children are encouraged to behave well, in order to have a game at the end of the class.

The Friday class at Ongar Leisure Centre
combines the Mini-Warriors & Warriors classes.

Sensei Jackie Walker - 3rd Dan Teaching at Hando Harlow

The clubs are run on the basis that all children training must act sensibly and be and very self disciplined, this has a carry over into everyday life. Our students of Ju Jitsu are generally more self confident, and have a better attitude to life, than those children who do not train, we impress upon the children that Ju Jitsu training is a privilege, and that they must show respect to their instructors, other children training, and to anyone who visits the Dojo (training place), including parents.

The Hando Mini Warriors and Warriors are expected to behave to a high standard, and are rewarded for their good behaviour with games at the end of each training session - poor behaviour, and especially any signs of bullying, results in the young person not being allowed to play the game, and can even result in a suspension from attending the club. We simply do not put up with unruly or bad behaviour. At the end of class, all the children are expected to thank the Coaches, and this engenders politeness and respect. Overall, this results in a great training experience for all.

Ongar Junior Class

Initially the only clothing required is a pair of jogging bottoms or a leotard, and a T-shirt.

Hando Ongar Juniors - 2013For those young people who wish to compete, Hando Ju Jitsu Clubs have regular training sessions covering Sparring, Groundfighting, Open Hand & Weapons Kata. Juniors are encouraged to train for competition, even if they do not intend to compete, as this is an excellent way for students to try out the techniques they have learned in a dynamic situation. There are specific sessions for Groundfighting and Sparring.

Under the United Kingdom Martial Arts Governing Body (UKMAGB) the club has a full Child Protection Policy. All instructors are trained, hold First Aid certification, and hold Public and Personal Liability Insurance, and enhanced Criminal Records Bureau Clearance (DBS - Disclosure & Barring Service) the safety of our students is always the first priority.

The Mini Warriors class is designed for children from 4 years to 7 years old, for boys and girls, and has quite a different approach to the Hando Warriors class. An excellent starter class for younger children and those who are a little shy or intimidated by larger classes, the Mini Warriors class will introduce Ju Jitsu in a smaller class with a high degree of attention to individuals. The class is a little shorter than the Hando Warriors class reflecting the shorter attention span of the younger children.

The Mini Warriors class is designed to bring the smaller kids into Ju Jitsu through a route that includes more Ju Jitsu type games, bringing out a competitive spirit in a very controlled environment, and instilling discipline.

The Warriors class has a reward system, and the children are encouraged to behave well, in order to have a game at the end of the class - the loss of participation in the games at the end of class is ALWAYS explained in terms of reward, and never as a punishment. We believe in inspiring good behaviour through reward, and the discipline at the club is very high.

Hando Ju Jitsu Weapons (Ko Budo) Club

Training with traditional Japanese Weapons

Hando Ju Jitsu Club runs a Ko Budo Class on the last Tuesday of each month, in Harlow,Essex, giving the senior students an opportunity to work with all of the weapons in the Jikishin Syllabus. The Ko Budo class is held from 9pm to 10 pm (immediately after the usual class), and is open to all students. Within Jikishin, it is compulsory for students to study the traditional weapons of Japan and Okinawa, as part of the Black Belt Syllabus.

Weapons Club is free for those eligible (from Green Belt) and is by invitation ONLY.

Tonfa Trainin - Application - Harlow Weapons Club

Many of the traditional Japanese weapons, and the techniques for utilising them, were developed from farming implements. In feudal Japan, the common people were not allowed, by law, to carry weapons. This right was the preserve of the upper classes and the class of warriors known as Samurai. Those who were forbidden to carry weapons developed ways and means to use everyday farming tools as weapons of defence, and the Nun Chaku (Rice Flail) and Kamma (Hand Scythes) are examples of this tradition.

The kata are performed with traditional Japanese weapons, and the training is in the form of single person and pairs kata, working with the following:

Earl Walker - Hando Chief Instructor - 5th Dan

Head Instructor Hando Ju Jitsu Clubs - Earl Walker

I began my Ju Jitsu journey in April 1991 at the Jikishin Ju Jitsu Club in Harlow, Essex. I started the same night as Wayne Bowen, with whom I trained and took all Gradings from White to Black. I came from a background in amateur boxing, amateur wrestling, and working as a doorman in pubs and clubs.
I took on the Ongar, Essex Club as Instructor in 1993, and the Harlow, Essex Club in 1995, after the retirement of my Sensei Steve Fryer. I qualified as a Senior Instructor in 1995.
I am proud of the standard of student that we produce at the Hando clubs, and the open attitude to training at the clubs gives both instructors and students plenty of things to think about - as well as Ju Jitsu, we cross train in aspects of boxing, wrestling, judo, karate, ground-fighting, sparring and MMA (Mixed Martial Arts).
Every student comes to our Ju Jitsu class with expectations, I am a great believer in giving each and every student the tools for the job.

I currently fulfil the roles as the Jikishin JJJA and UKMAGB National Fighting System Coach, the Jikishin Ju Jitsu Association & UKMAGB National Health & Safety Officer,the Hando Ju Jitsu Clubs Health & Safety Officer, the Webmaster for www.jikishin.com.

Jackie Walker - Hando Chief Junior Club Instructor - 4th Dan

Jaxkie Walker 3rd Dan Instructor
My training started in 1992 and I have reached the Grade of 4th Dan. I enjoy working with people and seeing the self confidence that students inevitably gain.
It gives me great pleasure to work with the children and I enjoy my own training (when I get the time). I feel that it is important for women to be able to defend themselves and am very happy to pass on the skill that I have worked hard to attain – after all, my Sensei did the same for me.
I have worked with a number of Ju Jitsu partners over the years but have not concentrated on getting higher grades, just on improving my own work and that of my students.
I enjoy the weapons side of the training and like to teach this aspect as I feel that it enhances the combat skills, particularly in terms of stances and body positions. Teaching the Junior class gives a lot of pleasure especially when the children do well at competition or on a Grading. I look forward to many more years in Ju Jitsu. I am the Club Welfare & Child Protection Officer.


Steve Thomas - Hando Senior Club Coach - 4th Dan

 Instructor Hando Ju Jitsu Clubs - Steve Thomas
I started training in 1990 as a productive way to keep fit, and got hooked. I gained my first Dan in 1997, shortly after which I also started training in Shotokan karate (currently Brown Belt).

I view martial arts as an excellent outlet in our hectic lives, and it might just keep you safe too. In a confrontational situation, knowing that you are trained to cope better with any eventuality, gives you more time to explore a constructive result.

As my Grandfather would say "Use what you have between your ears before resorting to what's on the end of your arms!"


Jamie Taylor - Hando Senior Club Coach - 4th Dan

Hando Coach Jamie Taylor 4th Dan

I started my Ju Jitsu career in 1991 at the now defunct Harlow Post Office Jikishin Ju Jitsu Club, and when this closed, I moved to Hando Ju Jitsu Club. I have trained wit Steve Thomas since that time and we have achieved 4th Dan together. I really enjoy teaching the juniors, and I work hard with the seniors to help them reach their potential.

My attitude to Ju Jitsu is that it is an excellent art with which to learn to defend yourself, it keeps you fit, it requires both physical and mental discipline and is great fun.

 


Will Murley - Hando Senior Club Coach - 3rd Dan

Senior Instructor Hando Ju Jitsu Clubs - Will Murley

I started Ju Jitsu when I was 6 years old in 1990.
I have competed in Local, National, International competitions where I have won gold in several categories. I ran the children's club at Harlow, Essex, under Sensei Earl, and loved it - passing along the knowledge that I have gained after training for most of my life. I hope to go on to run senior clubs of my own.
I enjoy the competitive side particularly, and I have competed successfully in cage fighting (unbeaten), and I currently run MMA classes in Harlow, Essex.
I enjoy bringing the juniors along and get a lot of pride and satisfaction from this side of Ju Jitsu. I also assist with the adults training, and keep up my own training regime. My philosophy is if you have to defend yourself, get in early and get in hard.


Paul Anthony - Hando Club Coach - 2nd Dan

Sensei Paul Anthony - 2nd Dan - Hando Ju Jitsu Club

Ju-Jitsu attracted me with its practical approach of ‘use what works to maximum effect’.
It quickly teaches the do’s and don’ts of self-defence. I also respected its constant evolution by taking and refining techniques and styles from all fields of combat to build someone who meets the needs of today’s world either in the street or in competition arenas.
Since starting training in 1999 I have found our clubs friendly and welcoming to all, combined with strong work ethic that promotes fitness and provides a challenge.
Everybody, no matter what their background or fitness, will get something out of the lessons: I always do.


Tess Godfrey - Hando Club Coach - 2nd Dan

Hando Instructor Tess Godfrey - 2nd Dan

I started training in 1997 as I wanted to improve my fitness, I had done a bit of Judo as a child so decided to return to martial arts and haven’t looked back since. I passed my 1st Dan in 2000, 2nd in 2003, level 3 coach 2005 and have competed in competitions where I won a bronze medal for random attacks (Black Belt) in 2003.
I enjoy helping and supporting the juniors and being small I can Uke for the older juniors when they don’t have a training partner or are struggling with a technique. I believe that it is good for children to learn martial arts as it will not only help them should they need to use it, but also gives them confidence whilst instilling respect not only for the sensei but also their peers.

Wow! What a result. Our brave and dedicated competition team did a fantastic job at the National Championships this year. Absolutely stunning result with medals won in most categories. All of the Hando entrants to the competition did brilliantly, fighting and performing to the best of their ability, and supporting their fellow club members. A huge thank you to the parents who worked hard to bring the kids along to competition training sessions, and of course to all of the performers who gave their all in both training and competing. A special mention to Jason Plume who won his first medal in Random Attacks - Jason returned to Ju Jitsu last year, after a 10 years hiatus - a great achievement. Kaitlyn Bell and Rhodri Morgan - two of our youngest competitors deserve a special mention for the hard work they put into their training, which paid off with Gold for both.

Congratulations to all who took part - we are so very proud of your achievements.

4 medals at the Jikishin 2012 National Championships

David Mizon - Gold Medal Winner - Sparring 2012

David Mizon won his first senior Sparring Gold Medal with a fine performance in the competition. Unfortunately, in the first round in the finals, he fractured the radius bone in his arm, but battled on in the second round with the broken arm to secure the gold medal spot. Due to the injury, Dave was unable to compete in the senior Heavyweight Groundfighting category, and unable to defend his title. We look forward to Dave competing and gaining both National titles next year, to match his excellent performance as a junior competitor.

Maciet Fracowiack - Bronze Winner Sparring 2012

Congratulation to the whole team. The support given to the competitors by the other members of the Team was fantastic and speaks highly of the competitive team spirit built at the clubs. Well done to all of those who competed, a great effort.

3 British Champions in Groundfighting - November 2005

Hando Ju Jitsu Clubs - Chris Richardson & Will Murley Gold Medal Winners - Groundfighting

Harlow's Will Murley and Chris Richardson, and Junior Competitor Michael Franklin, from our Ongar Club, won Gold Medals in the combined Jikishin Ju Jitsu and British Ju Jitsu Championships in Southend. Both competitors won all of their bouts by submission, an unusual feat. Will (20), Chris (23) and Michael (16) all won Gold medals in their respective weight categories.

All of the guys have been training and working on their Groundwork skills for quite some time now, and it is very gratifying to see them reach the pinnacle of success in the UKMAGB Championships. There were over 500 attendees and competitors on the day, and the standard is rising every year, so it is a great achievement on the part of the boys.

Sarah-Jayne Hunt - Silver Medal Jikishin Nationals 2005

A Silver Medal was gained by Sarah Jayne Hunt (15), who put up a great performance in the Final, to be crowned Runner Up in the Female Junior Sparring category. Sarah-Jayne has recently joined the Harlow, Essex club and competed for the first time in the British Championships. Far from being nervous, Sarah went into each of her fights with a great attitude and a will to win. She has a great future and the potential to go further in competition in the years to come.


Hando Pair win International Medals in UNJJ International Competition - September 2005.

 

Will Murley and Chris Richardson travelled to Ireland to represent their clubs in the UNJJ Congress & Competition in Letterkenny, Northern Ireland, where the standard was high. Both returned with medals for their efforts, and we are very proud of their achievements.

Both Will & Chris have been working hard on improving their Groundfighting skills for the competition and hope to go on to gain further honours in the British Ju Jitsu Association (GB) National Championships in November - with the dedication to training that they have shown, we are sure that they will attain further success.

Hando Ju Jitsu Competition

Hando Competition Training

At Hando Ju Jitsu Clubs, it is not compulsory to enter competition.

We do, however, encourage those who have a competitive urge, and we train in a number of disciplines in the area of Ju Jitsu. In many Martial Arts there are only one, or at best two types of competition. In Jikishin Ju Jitsu we have six, Groundfighting (Grappling), Sparring (Kicks, Punches and Throws), Random Attacks and three forms of competition Kata: Open Hand, Weapons and Pairs Demonstration.

Sensei Earl Walker is the National Coach for Jikishin JJA, UKMAGB and Euro-Budo International Fighting Systems - Groundfighting & Sparring.

Groundfighting

Hando Ju Jitsu Club is renowned for the quality of it's Groundfighting training and the toughness and resilience of it's Groundfighting competitors.

Chris Richardson Grappling

Hando Ju Jitsu Clubs have a great attitude toward Groundfighting. Most fights will end up on the floor - so where better to hone your skills? We regularly practice Ground-fighting in the Dojo, both for practice in self defence and for competition, where we have had considerable success in National and International competition - see News Page.

Quite a number of our students are practicing groundfighting every week, and enjoy the challenge. We also encourage new students coming to train to try out this very competitive discipline.

Paul Anthony - On the Ground Fighting

Our Ground-fighting is Ju Jitsu based, with influences from wrestling, judo, BJJ and cage fighting (MMA). Groundfighting is almost an Art in itself, and we like to practice new techniques and counters, work out fresh moves and generally try as a group to improve our skills.

 

See our Techniques Section for a selection of techniques taught at Harlow.

Sparring

Sensei Earl Walker 5th Dan is the National Coach for Jikishin JJA & UKMAGB Fighting Systems

 

Sparring Practice with Thai Pads

Hando Jikishin Ju Jitsu Clubs has a number of students who practice and enjoy the very competitive art of sparring. At Hando Jikishin Ju Jitsu & Clubs we have a some room for practice, along with much of the kit you might expect, such as focus mitts, Thai Pads, head guards, gloves etc.

We regularly have practice sessions, with students pitting their skills against their contemporaries, it is good practice and for competition and the street. Our sparring incorporates kicking, punching, throws and take downs. Once on the ground, student look at one of our other fighting and competition disciplines - Groundwork.

With elements of Boxing, Karate, Kickboxing, Wrestling, Muay Thai, Judo, and of course, Ju Jitsu, we look to train our students to be able to deal with any situation - in the street, or in competition with rules - whatever the competitive.

Random Attacks

Ongar Hando Ju Jitsu Club has a number of students who practice and enjoy training and competing for Random Attacks.

Random Attacks Layout

At Ongar Hando Ju Jitsu Club we plenty of mat room for practice. We regularly have practice sessions with students pitting their skills against their contemporaries in simulated competition. it is good practice and for competition and the street. Random Attacks are particularly good for testing your skills out in a competitive, but non- combative environment.

Rules for Random Attacks are relatively simple - there are a given number of attacks, from 8 for White and Yellow Belts, to 40 for Black Belts. The attack may incorporate a weapon (knife or club), be a strike, kick, grab, or strangle. The competitors stand on the mat area as per the illustration below. The same Random Attack is given to each Attacker, who must stand with their right hand behind their back, to conceal a weapon if there is one. At the call of the referee, each competitor will be attacked, and the judges will score the defence according to set criteria. At the end of 3 attacks, the competitors face the judges for a decision, and the winner goes through to the next round.7


Kata

Kata are sequences of predetermined fighting actions that help the student understand the body movements required to be able to correctly perform a technique or series of techniques.

Training for Kata Competition

Kata is not designed to be a fighting system in it's own right, but practice for the real thing. There are many types of Kata, and Kata is very common throughout the Martial Arts. Kata are sometimes referred to as Patterns or Forms.
Kata is rather like the training that a boxer does, for instance, to perfect the power and delivery of a punch. By practicing a particular punch, at first slowly, and then faster to full speed and repeating the action over and over, the boxer gets the benefit of muscle memory i.e. the ability to carry out a sequence of movements without conscious thought.

In competition Kata is separated into 3 categories: Open (or Empty) Hand Kata, Weapons Kata and Pairs Kata. Kata is judged on the accuracy of the Kata and on style (how the Kata is performed).

If this is the case, then private lessons with a skilled and experienced instructor may be a viable alternative.

What is Self Defence?

Self-defence is defined as the actions taken by a person to prevent another person from causing harm to them, their property or home. Self-defence is also accepted as an act of justified violence against unjustified aggression.
Self defence is also the study of effective fighting techniques for the purpose of defending oneself against aggression. The techniques are usually dirty, nasty things, which can rapidly injure and therefore disable the attacker without relying on a tremendous amount of physical strength and dexterity.;
Martial arts techniques can be helpful in self defence situations and the defender must understand the difference between practicing a Martial Art and taking measures to defend one’s person and /or property. In martial arts competition, there are rules, and the idea is for you to beat your opponent within the rule structure.. In self defence, the only rules are to get the aggressor to cease their attack, in order to give you an opportunity to escape. What Are The Benefits of Ju Jitsu?
Ju Jitsu is fun, and you will be learning new skills, this is a benefit in itself. If you are unfit, Ju Jitsu will help you to address this, and increase your personal safety and self confidence.;

  • Self confidence
  • Self control
  • Respect for others
  • Discipline
  • Cooperation
  • Fitness
  • Self Defence skills
  • Increased Awareness, Agility & Reflexes
  • Focus

 

 


 

What About the Legal Side of Self Defence?

Based in Essex, Earl Walker, Chief Instructor of Hando Ju Jitsu Clubs is a BTEC Level 3 Self Defence Trainer and is well versed in Self Defence and the Law. The principle of Self Defence and Proportionality are discussed with students, and the requirements of the law made clear. Should you have any questions or issues around Self Defence, please discuss with Sensei Earl.

What are the Martial Arts?

The Martial Arts are the study and application effective fighting techniques. It is this effectiveness which allows a proponent to defeat a much larger opponent. People study martial arts many reasons.
One of the main reasons that students commence training in the Martial Arts is to learn how to defend themselves. Many drop out during their career in Martial Arts due to lack of motivation, illness or injury, boredom, or sometimes life simply changes and no longer allows training. However, the for those who persevere, often the motivation becomes one of self improvement. There are many schools and styles of martial arts, and these are generally thought of as having been started in the Orient and brought to the West, however, the Martial Arts include “Western” sports such as boxing and wrestling, Brazilian styles such as Capoeira, Russian (Sambo), French (Savate) and so on. Ju Jitsu is a Japanese Martial Art which includes all aspects including striking and kicking, joint manipulation, throwing, choking and strangling and grappling. Is A Black Belt Automatically A Ju Jitsu Teacher?

 


 

I have never trained any Martial Arts before, will I be out of my depth?

No. Jitsu is excellent for beginners, and all of the people you meet in Ju Jitsu started as a novice – even the very few 10th Dans among us! All of our instructors are former students and will teach you in a time and experience led regime – the Syllabus is set up to introduce the beginner to some very strong, but simple techniques. The classes are taught in an open atmosphere, and the students you meet of whatever grade, know what it was like to start. The learning process is gradual, and progress is monitored so that each student receives the tuition required for their individual ability.

 


 

Is a Black Belt Automatically an Instructor / Coach / Teacher?

Under the United Kingdom Martial Arts (GB). In order to teach, a Black Belt has to undergo a number of hurdles. The welfare and safety of our students, particularly the young and the vulnerable is of paramount importance to us. All UKMAGB Coaches are required to have gained experience in coaching, and the following are compulsory:

  • A Coaching Award from the UKGBMA (Accreditation - NVQ)
  • An Enhanced DBS (formerly CRB) check (required for teaching children and vulnerable adults)
  • A current First Aid Qualification (Red Cross or St. Johns)
  • Public Liability Insurance
  • The UKMAGB also have a Child Protection Policy in place which all instructors are obliged to abide by.

Code of Conduct

 


 

How Long Does It Take To Become A Black Belt?

The minimum time from starting Ju Jitsu to becoming a Black Belt is 3 years. On average to gain a Black Belt takes 4 years plus. This is because the training required to obtain a Dan Grade in the Jikishin system is designed to be challenging, the requirements for First Dan Black Belt can be found on the Jikishin Ju Jitsu Association Dan Grade Syllabus page.

Jikishin Ju Jitsu Association Dan Grade Syllabus

 


 

Do I Have To Learn Japanese?

Whilst in many Martial Arts, the throws and strikes are referred to by their Japanese names; we use English to describe all of the techniques within the Syllabus. We feel that our students come to learn to defend themselves, not to learn to speak parts of a foreign language. However, there are certain terms that derive from the origins of Ju Jitsu, the training place is still known as a Dojo, the teacher of the class is known as sensei, and the traditional bow at the start and finish of lessons is referred to as a rei (pronounced "ray").

 


 

What Happens When I Turn Up For The First Time?

Firstly we get changed and ready to train.
Then we will teach you the basic Breakfalls, Exercises, the start of the White Belt Syllabus. You will be introduced to the Instructors at the Club, registered (you will have to fill in a Jikishin Ju Jitsu Association Membership Form), and the training regime will be explained, Dojo Etiquette is explained and demonstrated.
You will line up for the formal start of the class with all the other students.

 


 

Will I get Thrown Around On My First Session?

There is a lot of throwing in Ju Jitsu, but you will not start getting thrown until you have practiced Breakfalls and are competent our opinion.

 


 

If I Come Along With A Friend, Will We Be Able To Train Together?

Yes, in fact we encourage beginners who start as a pair to work together and as most of the lesson is taken up with partner work, this usually works out fine.

 


 

What If I Come Alone?

Most students start training this way, we will introduce you to a training partner, of a similar grade (or if you are lucky, one of the Black Belts may take you under their wing), You will then train with your partner throughout the rest of the session.

 


 

What Do I Have To Wear?

For the first session you will need to wear a pair of Track Suit Bottoms and a long sleeved T-shirt - we train in bare feet, so no footwear is required. Any Jewellery will need to be removed, or in the case of a ring which cannot be taken off, covered with a sticking plaster. At some point before your first Grading you will need to purchase a training uniform, or Gi.

 


 

How Much Does It Cost?

Lessons are currently £ 10.00 per lesson for adults and £ 5.00 per lesson for juniors. There is a concessionary adult training fee for students, the disabled and the unemployed at £8.00 per lesson, and Juniors training at the adult club also receive a concession £8.00 per lesson.
In addition to this there is the Association Membership Fee (includes Insurance) around £30.00 per annum. Other costs you are likely to incur are a Gi (training uniform) this will cost between £20.00 and £30.00 (available from your Sensei). Gradings (average 2 per year) are £25.00 for seniors and £15.00 for juniors, including a new belt.

Cost of Training

 


 

Are Gift Certificates Available?

Yes, if you know someone who is interested in Ju Jitsu, why not buy them a Gift Certificate allowing 3 lessons at Hando Ju Jitsu Clubs for just £16.00 for an adult, £12.00 for a teenager or £8.00 for a Junior.

How Often Can I Train?

Because Jikishin Ju Jitsu is widely practiced, there are clubs training on every day of the week, so you can tailor your training regime to suit yourself. As long as you come along to the club to which you belong, once per week, you may train (with the permission of your instructor) at any other Jikishin Club you wish.

 


 

How Often Should I Train?

Students should to train regularly, as it will improve the skill sets quickly, and allows the sensei to follow each individual’s progress. How often you train is optional. Beginners usually train once a week, with those who are studying and practising for the Black Belt 3 times a week is normal. Like any other skill, Ju Jitsu requires practice, to learn, to progress and to keep the skills sharp. In short, like anything else in life, the more effort you put in, the quicker you'll progress.

 


 

What are the minimum and maximum that you take students?

Ju Jitsu appeals to all ages and can be practised by everyone. Members range from the ages of 4 years to about 82 years – one of our Black Belts took his 3rd Dan at 72! As with fitness, age is no barrier, for the Ju Jitsu student, and all can benefit from training.
Juniors love Ju Jitsu. Children love to roll around, wrestle and chase one another, tussle and grapple – it is natural for them and the Dojo gives an excellent atmosphere where this exuberance can be channelled, whilst still making the experience fun. Juniors are encouraged to develop and improve skills throughout their Ju Jitsu training, and being naturally competitive, we usually give the youngsters a game or two at the end of the training session as a reward for working hard. We encourage children to enjoy the training sessions, however, a strict code is followed so that no child can be bullied, and all can build a healthy respect for themselves and others.

 


 

I Am Female - Will There Be Any Other Women Training?

Yes, most likely, Ju Jitsu is excellent for women, as well as for men. Many women choose to join a Ju Jitsu class because of the exercise, others because they wish to learn self-defence. The atmosphere at most clubs is extremely welcoming to women, and we have a large number of female Dan Grades within the Association. There are women training in the majority of our clubs. We also have clubs which are designated women only. Hando have a number of female Black Belt Instructors including Jackie Walker - 4th Dan and Senior Instructor and many female students.

 

 


 

I Am 16 Years Old, Will I Train As An Adult Or As A Junior?

This will depend upon your size, maturity and ability - this will decided by us on your first attendance. In general, the rule is that at 16 years old, a student is "officially" classed as an adult, however, we have a number of students who have transferred to the adult training sessions early (at 15) and others who have remained in the junior ranks until 17 or 18. This is particularly the case with juniors training with a partner who is older / younger. We judge on a case by case basis. You will not be pushed beyond your abilities.

 


 

I Am Not Very Fit - How Will I Cope?

Training is adjusted to the individual, so we ask you to do only what you are capable of, and no more. However, through the warm-up, and training, your fitness level will rise to a degree where you should be in a position to complete the warm-up after 6 weeks to 3 months.

 


 

Will Ju Jitsu Make A Difference To My Self Confidence?

This is up to you - for most students the simple answer is yes it certainly will. However, each individual is different, and training and learning to defend yourself is a great way to improve your self confidence. You will feel that you are in control and can face most situations. Self confidence is based on your own "view" of yourself, so if you feel confident when training, this will have a natural spill over into your normal life.

 


 

Will I Get Injured?

In general, Ju Jitsu is very safe. There are occasional injuries, and these tend to be minor in severity. Like any combat sport, or indeed almost all sports, there is an inherent risk. Jikishin Instructors are trained to avoid injury, are all First Aid trained, and are familiar with Sports Injuries. The risk is generally low, as training sessions are carefully controlled and instructors are aware, and point out, where the risk of injury is higher.

 


 

What About Competitions - Do I Have To Compete?

Competition is not compulsory, but does give you the opportunity to assess your skills against others of a similar grade. Competing is purely optional, however, we encourage those who wish to compete, and assist with training regimes, strategies, and practice for success in competition.

How Are Competitions Organised?

Within Jikishin there is adequate scope and variety for those who enjoy competing, however competition is voluntary – not mandatory. The choice of whether to compete is entirely the choice of the student, provided that the student meets the competition entry criteria.
Inter-club, National and International level competitions are held on a regular basis. In addition there are competition specific training sessions, and time at regular training sessions to dedicate to competition.
Competitions are organised under various categories, and competitors enter according to weight, grade or in open categories depending on the discipline.

There are a number of categories:

  • Ground-fighting
  • Sparring
  • Sport Fighting
  • Random Attacks (National & International)
  • Kata - Open Hand
  • Kata – Weapons
  • Kata - Pairs
  • Team Demonstration (International Only)

It is apparent that there are very few obstacles to those who wish to compete.
The competitions at most events cover both junior and senior entrants, and your instructor will explain rules for each event.
In order to be eligible to compete the entrant has to:

  • Be fit to compete
  • Have trained for the discipline
  • Have up to date UKMA (GB) membership
  • Have up to date Jikishin Ju Jitsu Association membership
  • Have up to date Insurance
  • Have entered the competition within the time limit prior to competition.

There is an annual fee which includes all fees paid to the UKMAGB, Insurance, and Club and Association Membership are also included. There is a limited Insurance Scheme which is also provided - See Terms and Conditions on Insurance Certificate.

How Long have Hando Jikishin Ju Jitsu Clubs been in existence?

Harlow & Ongar (HANDO) Ju Jitsu Clubs have been in existence since 1979, and Earl Walker has been the Chief Instructor since 1992. The club has a long history and has had a number of Instructors over the years. The club was first started by Professor Terry Parker, and Sensei Steve Fryer was the incumbent before Earl Walker.

 


 

What is the difference between Ju Jitsu & Jiu Jitsu?

There is no difference. Ju Jitsu or Jiu Jitsu are transliterations of the Japanese words/phrase which are not directly translatable into English as there are no English letter equivalents to the Japanese characters. This means that the words are translated phonically, and this gives rise to the difference in spellings.

 


 

What is Brazilian Ju Jitsu?

Brazilian Ju Jitsu is a sport inspired version of Ju Jitsu, modified from traditional Ju Jitsu by the Gracie family of Brazil, and now taught as both a standalone sport, or as part of a suite of skills utilised by MMA fighters. It is predominately ground based, and grappling with an opponent to a conclusion of either a submission or "choke out" where the opponent is rendered unconscious.
