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

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.

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.
