Bradford Grammar Jitsu Club

Ju jitsu is a massive part of our lives and has kept me fit and healthy as well very close to my family. We work as team and train together at Bradford Jitsu club which I set up 2001. We have clubs in 5 different venues based in schools and community centre and have lots of fun as a family. I started training back in 1984 at Manchester Polytechnic, under Sensei Jeff Thompson, and over the years won a number of competitions and ran a number of university clubs including Manchester, Salford Nottingham and Loughborough.

In 2001 I moved to Bradford with a young family and was keen to set up a club for my children could train at. 13 years later we have been fortunate to have grown from a small club of 15 to 100 juniors and seniors. It's a great feeling to be able to see juniors and seniors develop their skills in ju jitsu and pass gradings. We have managed to have win 15 junior national and international competitions and trained in Canada, USA, Amsterdam and South Africa.
