Congratulations to Gary on his achievement, a long time in the making, and very well deserved.

Well done guys, a good performance, with lots of positive feedback.
Awesome turn out at the Nationals this weekend, and so pleased and proud to see all the Winchester students train for the full two days with great enthusiasm and commitment.
With Jade and Jawa being placed 1st and 3rd in the Gauntlet competitions, we have kept our successful record of having students placed in the top 3 every year the club has been running.
Now the next challenge is to trade in some of those colours for new darker coloured ones!
The Nationals are on the way in the very near future.
So if you’ve not already told us that you want to come along…. then make your mind up quickly, or you could miss the opportunity to train 🙂
Train for 1 day, or both days …. your choice, but if you miss it you will regret it, as it’s a fantastic opportunity to meet and train with all the other clubs in the association as a great venue. Oh and did I mention the social afterwards…… just make sure you’re ready to train again on the Sunday morning.
Winchester Aiuchi Jiu Jitsu :::: 7:30 – 9:30 resumes in the Dance Studio (Main Gym)
- an open mind,
- lots of enthusiasm,
- a Gi if you have one,
- otherwise old Tshirt and Jogging Bottoms
and be prepared for a cracking session of jitsu, where you will learn some new skills or practice some old ones.
Get there a bit early so we can sort out the administration / form filling
Congratulations to all who graded.
