New website page

With the ongoing national restrictions preventing us from doing what we love and training in Jujitsu, the website has been updated with a new page to try and help members train at home.

The nature of Jujitsu means that we really need to train with others, which greatly restricts what we can do online.

We have added kubodo videos for each individual weapon so that you can still get your martial arts fix and practice weapons alone.

Hopefully with the roll out of vaccines we will be able to get back on the mat soon.

We are also currently looking at other ideas to add to the online training page. If any student has any suggestions of something they would like to see, please let Sensei Sid know, and we will try and add it.


2021 Club Training Dates

At this time, all training is currently on hold due to the current Coronavirus lockdown restrictions. The website calendar has been updated but as you can see is looking a little bare.

As soon as we can start training again, Sensei Sid will look to plan some dates for grading’s, as well as additional training dates covering Kobudo and Black Belt specific training.

In the meantime members can try the new website page which has a series of videos showing the weapons katas.



On the 15th of April, the association held a seminar at Medway Park Leisure Centre. There was a very good turnout with over 50 members from across the many clubs of the association. The association was honoured to have Hanshi Cosimo Costa travel from Sicily to teach. Sensei Jim Kirkham and Sensei Dave Haddell were also teaching. It was a thoroughly enjoyable day with lots of valuable knowledge being passed on. Below is a photo of the attendees.

Congratulations to Senseni Sid Martin and Sensei Rod Cullen for passing their 4th Dan grading. They both worked very hard other the past few months preparing for their grading, and put in maximum effort on the day and earned their 4th Dan’s. Well done, your students are very proud of you.
