YTJC Training for week commencing 30 June 2014

As a result of some end of year school events (including something to do with the Tour de France), training will be moving for the week from the St. Olave's School Wall Bar Gym to St. Peter's School Sports Hall.

Training will be at the usual time, but please come directly to St. Peter's Sports Hall.  There is likley limited mat availability, so please consider bringing some suitable footwear with you for training on a tiled sports hall floor (e.g. trainers).




YTJC Hall Changes - Week Commencing 28 October 2013

The wall bar gym is the usual venue for sessions at St. Olave's School on Monday and Friday evenings, however the hall is undergoing refurbishment on the week commencing 28 October 2013.  As a result the two sessions for that week will be relocated.

Monday 28 October - Shepherd Hall, St. Olave's School

Students will be able to get changed in the usual changing rooms, but this hall is located just behind where the session fees are normally taken within St. Olave's.

Friday 1 November - Sports Hall, St. Peter's School

The Friday session will be relocating to a sports hall in St. Peter's School (the school via which students currently enter in order to make their way to St. Olave's).

There may be limited equipment availability (specifically mats), so as a precaution please consider bringing along some appropriate footwear to train in (e.g. trainers, martial arts footwear).

If you have any questions regarding these sessions, please speak to Sensei Millard directly or contact us via the web site.


YTJC Club Photograph

The photographs from last week's club photograph session are now available.  To view them you must be a registered member of (register here) and you must also be approved as a York club member.

Currently we're in a phase of choosing which will be the official photo (to be published on this web site very soon) and which other photos we might release.  As a club member you can voice your opinions on our Facebook page thread on the topic.


University of York Fresher Fair

As the days get longer and colder it can only mean one thing, yes the University term is starting!  With that bring the Fresher Fair where we get to recruit another group of people who are want to try Jitsu for the first time.  University club memebers should already have had an email about it but for those that haven't here are the details:

Freshers Fair

University Sports centre (Heslington Lane) 8:30 - 16:00  5th October

Please bring your Gi and any Jitsu merchandise you have along so people can clearly recognised who we are and what we do.


The first session for the new novices will be Monday 19:00 7th October in the sports centre.


YTJC Club Photograph (Monday 23 September 2013)

From 8:30 PM on Monday 23 September the club will be taking some entire photographs.  It has been some time since we last did this (several years) so we would really like a good turn out.  This session will be a great opportunity to get back into Jitsu for those who have been out a while.  So whether your a brand new novice or an experienced veteran we'd love to have you join us! Juniors should get permission from parents to stay a bit later to take part.

We're hoping to have a range of more unusual club photographs as well as the classic everyone in lines team photo.  If you have an idea, please submit it via our Facebook page.

The photos will be uploaded to a private gallery later in the week for club members to download. A handful of photographs may be selected to use on the club's web site and in social media - names will not be included ... though if you want to tag yourself in any uploaded to our Facebook page you are welcome to do so.
