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.

All Change

This evening will be Sensei Stephen Millard's last session for a little while as he is to undergo some minor surgery that will put him on crutches for several weeks.  The city centre club will continue to run during his absence with Sensei Mags Godderidge and  Sensei Dax Godderidge covering some of the sessions and others being taken by Sempai James Davey and Sempai Matt Ellis under the supervision of Sensei Millard.

Yorkshire Senior Grading - December 2012

Today was the Yorkshire adults grading where students were assessed by Sensei John Allen for their next belts.  Whilst it wasn't quite a clean sweep across the board the standard of Jitsu was high and although there are a few technical points to pick up on in the coming months the results reflected the sterling effort put in by one and all.

Both York clubs have had significant success and a number of new belts will be present on the York mats in the coming week several of which sporting mons.

A special mention should probably also go to Leconfield where York based instructor Sensei Dax Godderidge had his first novices grade to Yellow.

Pass or not a great display of Yorkshire based Jiu Jitsu from everyone.
