Covid Update April 2021– Our Plan for a Return to Training.

April 2021

We will be opening our doors once again on 14th April for all Junior Students, New students are also welcome.

The class will be split by age group:

Junior’s age 5 to 10 years: 7pm to 7.45pm

Junior’s age 11 to 16 years: 7.45pm to 8.30pm

Additional kick start session: 8.30pm to 9.00pm - Intermediate to advanced students (Blue Belt to Black Belt)

 

May 2021

Adults will return to training on 19th May.

Juniors will return to one mixed class, split by age between both rooms.

Junior Class: 7.00pm to 8.00pm

Adult Class: 8.30pm to 10.00pm

Regulations will remain in place for Adults and a single training partner rule still applies, similar to the situation back in 2020.

 

June 2021

Once social distancing restrictions are lifted, we will return to normal training from 23rd June.

 

Additional Thursday Classes

Due to Covid restriction we were forced to close our Thursday classes almost a year ago, we still have no firm plan for a return, but we expect this will not happen until the restrictions on the number of students able to train inside the Dojo at one time are lifted.

 

 

Saturday Classes

I’m sure most of our students are looking forward to a return to regular training from 14th April, we are also planning to have extra Saturday lessons running through the summer or at least until we start our Training Courses and Master Classes again in early July.

The first of our Saturday lessons will be on 24th April from 10am.

Due to current regulations, this will be a Junior’s only lesson, split by age group, we will confirm times in the coming weeks.

Demand will dictate future dates; however, we intend to host two Saturday Classes per month

 

We aim to include an additional Adults session as restrictions start to relax, we hope this will be possible from mid to late May.

 

Courses, Seminars and Master Classes

Adults will also have more opportunities for weekend training this year with regular Master Classes’ and Training Courses planned from May onwards.

Plans for a Summer Seminar in early July are underway, and a grading day may be on the cards before the end of the year.

 

 

 

A very warm Welcome to our new Junior students.
Three busy Sessions again this week, a Busy adults Class, 2 Busy Junior Classes and a growing beginners Class to top things off this month.
Thank you to our dedicated students and parents for making our club the success it is today.
Separating our Juniors by age really does work well, we don't mix junior and senior school children, the benefits are now becoming clearer week after week, we will continue with 2 Junior Classes for the foreseeable future as it seems to work, both from a tuition perspective and for the safest possible Covid compliant option.

 i.e. focus pads, gloves may be used by one person in any class – all equipment will be appropriately cleaned after use.

 

4, Permitted by Government regulation, partner training can occur. Under this Policy, students must remain with the same training partner for the duration of the class (i.e. no changing training partners during the lesson).

Daniel Rawden
Congratulations on this landmark achievement in support of your club, this qualification was not earned overnight, or on a one day training course, Junior Leaders, like Adult Assistant Instructors have trained for years before receiving this award, to be an instructor takes unfailing dedication, focus and commitment, as well as a lot of extra hard work along side training on their syllabus, wear the badge with pride, well done.
2018 Ju-Jitsu Seminar Faro, a few photos from our recent visit, it was an honor to step on the mat and be part of this event, we are hoping to take more of our students next year so if your interested ask one of the instructors for more details.

Sale Ju-Jitsu Presentation 2017
another successful year comes to a close, thank you to all my students, parents, instructors and friends for your support this year, unfortunately our senior Coach, Shihan McConville wasn't able to make it this year due to other engagements, I am, as always grateful to him for all his work and support this year, most of which is not seen or fully appreciated by most of us, However as usual our sister club in Winsford never let us down and we were very happy to welcome Richard, Sophie & Dave from Winsford Ju-Jitsu Club who gave their time and experience during the presentation and in helping to teach the adults class last night.

 

SJJA and our sister club, Winsford Ju-Jitsu Club were invited to a special training session on Tuesday 31st January, Free to WJJF members, guest instructor John Greenhalgh 10th Dan took high grades and instructors through some advanced techniques in what turned out to be a superb training session, to top off a perfect morning we were presented with some very nice pads and shields, donated by WJJF CIC in support of its growing number of clubs.
Thank you to Shihan Robert Hart, Shihan Brian Truby and of course Hanshi John Greenhalgh for a very enjoyable day.

Another memorable DAN grading at WJJF Headquarters.
Well Done to my good friend and training partner Richard wallace on passing his 3rd DAN, the aches and pains started this morning.

thanks to Sensei Mike Widdall for putting us through pour paces and of course for his kind words and encouragement throughout

A Big Thank you to Winsford Jujitsu Club

Sensei Lee Nelson Being presented with the Club Registration for

Sale Ju-Jitsu Academy

by Sensei Andrew McConville 

 

Last Night was the first Sale Ju-Jitsu Academy Training Session.



It was a slow start with only a few brave new students, but as always Winsford Jujitsu Club showed up in force to do what we do best.

 

As expected the knife technique session received the most comments.

 

A very Special Thank you to Sensei Andrew Robinson, Sensei Neil Cheswick & not forgetting Sensei Andrew McConville

 

I would also like to thank the Assistant instructors for their help, Sophie Wallace, Jack Birtles, Chris Wright & Richard Wallace.

 

Last but by no means least, thank you to the first Sale Ju-Jitsu Students for your support, the first session is always the most difficult, or should I say walking through the door for the first time.

 

All in all a good night
