Lewis Mays Competing in Groundfighting JJJA/UKMAGB National Competition 2015

For 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.

The Competition Club runs at Mark Hall, Harlow on Mondays from 6:15pm to 7:15pm from the end of June to the beginning of November. The Jikishin/UKMAGB National Championships are held in November each year. See the Jikishin Website Events page for details.
