YTJC: Friday Sessions Return

As of Friday 2 October, York Jitsu Club will be running Friday sessions once again.  The sessions will run from 19:00 - 20:30 (just like Mondays) in the usual venue (St. Olave's School Wall Bar Gym.

The club is also reviewing session fees with a view to discounting based on frequency of attendance in a week and also with regards to multiple family members training.

Keep an eye out for more details coming this month. 


YTJC: September Training

Over the course of the summer, the city centre club has been running a reduced time table of classes. In the first half of 2015 class attendance dipped below levels that the club could sustain over the summer period running two classes of two and a half hours in length. As a result, the club members took the decision to reduce the training times over the summer (an action that has been take in previos years when attendance levels had followed the natural summer holidays dip).

Over the summer, the club has recruited a number of new members and a review was taken of the current attendance levels. The club members have decided to run for a further month with just a Monday night session. Assuming that the membership and attendance remain as is the club will reinstate a Friday session from the beginning of October 2015 and at the same time the session fees will also be assessed with a view to making it more affordable to train at both sessions*.

* The club members also elected to increase the session fees at the start of the summer to sustain the club.


YTJC: Changes to Training

Based on feedback from our recent member survey, and discussions of the feedback with club members, the members have decided to make the following changes to the club's training details.

  1. Training times are now 19:00 - 20:30 for adults.
  2. Training will be on Monday evenings only during July and August 2015 - the summer is typically a much quieter period.
  3. The session price has been increased by £1.

All of these changes will be reviewed once again later this year.
