*** Coronavirus Update ***
Based on the Government’s advice to
"avoid all non essential contact” and with schools closing on Friday 21st March, the decision has been made to temporarily cancel all lessons at the Lowlands Jujitsu Club until the pandemic passes. Our top priority is to keep people safe and avoid passing anything on to others. Please stay safe and follow government guidelines to stay well.
We will review the situation regularly and information will be posted here as soon available.
We appreciate all your support at this time and ask if possible for members not to cancel their subscriptions as we are non profit organisation and could close as a result.
To make up for lost time, when we reopen we will put on extra free classes and free courses. In the meantime we are putting something together so you can still learn jujitsu and some fun activities. Our last lesson is this Friday so if you would like your child to attend or not its up to you. We will be in regular contact so please check your emails and will be texting.
many many thanks Professor Kenny and Sensei Wayne
Stay safe see yous all soon!

4 Pillars of Self Defence
Ju-Jitsu is based around the the four pillars of self defence.
Pillar 1: Physical
The physical pillar is all about ensuring that your body can physically perform in any given situation. This includes:
- Cardio-vascular exercise.
If you struggle with any of these Ju-Jitsu will help improve any areas you are lacking during the extensive warm up.
Pillar 2: Emotional
Emotional defense is one that you may already practice without knowing it. Emotional attacks and take many forms such as:
- Negative remarks
- Peer pressure
- Low self confidence
- Lack of self discipline
Ju-Jitsu helps you build self confidence, discipline and a better way of thinking.
Pillar 3: Nutrition
A healthy diet and life style reduces the risk of illness. Improving your nutrition will also improve the first two pillars - your body and mind!
Pillar 4: Situational Awareness
It is more than likely you will find yourself in some kind of confrontation during your life time. Being able to recognise dangerous situations and deescalate any you get involved is the preferred way rather than having to physically defend yourself. It is always best to stay in an attentive but relaxed state so you are aware of the following:
- People - especially gangs
- Environmental hazards
- Sharp objects on the floor
- Dark alleyways
- Enclosed spaces
If you encounter an immediate potential threat then the first step is to avoid if possible. Ju-Jitsu is there to teach you to always be aware of what is going on around you.
