Ju-Jitsu Workshop

20th Feb 2017

Ju-Jitsu is a Japanese martial art and method of close combat developed among the samurai of feudal Japan as a method of self-defence for defeating an armed opponent without the use of a weapon. Children who engage in Ju-Jitsu improve fitness, flexibility, strength and most of all confidence while emphasisng the importance of respect and discipline. As part of our class learning on the topic of Japan this term, the P5/6 and P6/7 children were lucky enough to take part in a Ju-Jitsu workshop led by 5th Dan Master William Watson. Everyone enjoyed an action packed and informative afternoon of learning and thank you to all parents who supported us in providing this opportunity for the children involved.
