Back to School!

On Monday 8th July 2019, Makerfield Ju-Jitsu had the pleasure of attending an assembly at Britannia Bridge Primary School where we provided a brief introduction of Ju-Jitsu to the children and some members of staff.

Drawing on the schools values of “H.E.A.R.T” various aspects of Ju-Jitsu life were adapted into examples which the children could relate with, demonstrating that it isn’t all just about punching, kicking and throwing!

  • Happiness
  • Encouragement
  • Aspirations
  • Respect
  • Teamwork

The 40 minutes consisted of some of the following:

  • A brief breakdown of Ju-Jitsu as a Martial Art and Self Defence, placing emphasis on the idea that we do not “just fight”
  • A breakdown of the “H.E.A.R.T” values
  • Our Shodan-Mon student Aydin assisted in the demonstration by showing fellow class mates some of the basic strikes and kicks that can be seen in Ju-Jitsu
  • Hannah demonstrated some of the beginner throws and strangle escapes using me as uke (Something tells me Hannah really enjoyed this bit!)
  • The children asked any questions they had
