Did John Sensei train you so hard noone can type ?

Or is it a plot to keep me guessing ?


Monday 31st Jan

A big round of applause for John Sensei who has now completed a huge 50 years on the mats …..

A few throws by the senior grades under Jamie Sensei’s careful tutoring……

A few throws a few takedowns and a few atemi strikes for everyone else …intermixed with pushups and situps !!!

A very good class good commitment some excellent techniques and that was just by the Sensei’s !!!

See you all Thursday  


PS Mel I ache !!

Oh My we have been well and truly busted

Sensei has been reading the blog ….Gary you are in DEEP !!!!

Good session tonight covered a lot of basics with emphasis on finishing off techniques and good blocking.

Push ups crunches streching follwed by focus mitts and then uchikomi ….a nice gentle warm up I thought …then into techniques …

See you all Thursday

The REAL UKE returns

Posted: December 21, 2010 by alansmurf in jujitsu

SO we trained a little we drank a bit ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,shot the breeze and set the world to rights

GAry the wandering student returned and stepped back into his “I am the Uke in this club ” role , with a little challenge from Ian …………..Garys rules in the fight …however after the second technique I thought I noticed a glimmer of ..” Have the bloody job Ian ” in Gary’s eyes …it was either that or tears from a good atemi to the inner thigh !!

John Sensei admitted to his recent loss in a randori with the car boot lid and the snow !!!! Hilarious …

Jamie and I set out our New Year plan for new invigorated training sessions …and I have promised to revamp and deliver a seriously heart moving warm up routine ….

James James and Nat Chris Peter and Nigel completed last nights line up in what was an interesting session in Christmas confrontation management….

16th another night without Gary

Posted: December 16, 2010 by alansmurf in jujitsu

I promised atemi and we did atemi ….palm heels, empi, Hiza, front kicks, jabs , hooks, crosses and heel kicks  until there was a nice warm feeling in the dojo…then we linked the atemi into kansetsu waza and nagawaza ….block strike lock and throw …or any of the above in order of choice as long as you dont get hit too much .. 


Small dedicated crew worked  very hard and thanks for letting me train ..kept an old man happy..
