*** Coronavirus Update 2***
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.
Lowlands jujitsu club is transitioning classes to online only as a way to offer training virtually to you and your families. It will allow them to train safely and comfortably within their own homes.
We are not closing, we are transitioning to online-only classes via Zoom much like our surrounding universities and colleges are also doing.
We want to remain connected with our community while still practicing safe social distancing and the internet has fortunately provided us the means to do so. We want to continue to motivate and encourage mindsets of students who are stuck at home.
We are honored to see our students and parents and our community reach out and share ways to continue to serve our martial arts families despite the current climate. We will continue to share what we can, knowing that things may change daily.
Thank you and remember… Calm and Confident.
many thanks Prof K.J Blundell & Sensei W.K Blundell

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.
