Information for Junior Students











Interested in Junior Classes for your Child?

Before bringing your child to the club for your first time, you will want to be sure they are going to be safe while in our care and they will enjoy the experience, they may be new to Martial Arts and they may have never been inside a Dojo before, despite this, most children that try Ju-Jitsu, really enjoy it.


We have been doing this for a long time, over the years, we think we have heard most of the concerns that parents have, here are a few answers to our most asked questions.



What to wear: If you’re wondering what your child should wear, jogging bottoms and a T-Shirt or sweatshirt will be fine to start with.


What you Shouldn’t wear!: Please do not bring your child to a lesson wearing Jeans, Buttoned Shirts, Skirts, Vests or Shorts.

Watches and jewelry should NOT be worn during training.


How much does it cost? 1st lesson is free to new students, and we charge £5 per lesson after that on a pay as you train basis.


What is the recommended age for my child to start training: Our standard starting age for junior students is 5 years and over, however, we can also take junior students as young as 4 years of age, providing our safeguarding obligations can be met, this may just be asking a parent to be present during the lesson (which we recommend for all students in their first few weeks).


How do I join: If your child enjoys it and wants to join, simply complete the enrolment pack and return it with a £25 membership fee, you will receive a License book, membership and a syllabus book, your first grading is also included when you join us.


Training equipment: As with most martial arts, students wear a uniform to train (for junior students this is part of the attraction) although we don’t insist on students wearing our club Gi (training suit) most students buy them from us, they are in club colours and embroidered with our artwork, we charge £25 for most junior sizes, and £35 for larger children, all Gi's are available to order from the club reception.


How long are junior classes: Junior classes are structured to get the most from the student, it’s important that they progress and enjoy their time on the mat.

Junior Classes are limited to 45 minutes in line with BJJKO safeguarding and child safety regulations, this ensures that students remain focused throughout the lesson and don’t become fatigued.

By ensuring our younger students are engaged with us and remain focused while training, ensures they progress up through their belts regularly, this is crucial in maintaining a student’s morale and their feeling of self-worth.


Grading: Ju-Jitsu is a syllabus based martial art, your child will train for their next belt and when they are ready, they will be graded, we don’t charge for a students first grading and all coloured belt grades are £10. students will grade 2 to 3 times per year,  provided they complete the minimum number of sessions to qualify, train regularly and are ready for the grade.


We are an inclusive club, and we feel that it is important that students’ progress regardless of age and varying ability, we have a split belt system in place to ensure that very young students and students of varying ability receive the recognition they deserve and that their hard work is rewarded.


I hope this answer most of your questions, however, should you have any concerns or just need to ask about something we haven’t mentioned, contact us here for more information.

This is what people think about our club

Absolutely superb club!
Sensei is a seasoned professional who has many years’ experience teaching martial arts. The management team of BJJKO is fantastic, they teach a fabulous syllabus and have very high safeguarding and welfare standards and policies.
I feel that my girls are learning such important skills, gaining confidence and being able to defend themselves.
Learning how to handle attackers, training in using and defending against weapons and building their fitness in every session. Couldnt recommend it enough!
