Hi, I'm John.
I lead Higher Jiu Jitsu in Woolloomooloo. We are a bunch of friendly adults that come together to learn, and play jiu jitsu. Jiu jitsu acts like a vehicle and the path guides us toward being better people and building quality of life.
Night after night, and class upon class, I am seeing the benefits of jiu jitsu come to life through us oldies. And now, we get the chance to spread the joys of our art with the kids of Sydney.
Maybe it's because I've had to deal with bullies all my life too.
I've been pushed, and teased and made to feel worthless. Sometimes I fought back and sometimes I cried. I never wanted it to happen. But it would find me anyway. I'd ask why. The bullies didn't know. It didn't matter.
This made me look for something to do about it.
During that search, I found jiu jitsu.
Thank you bullies.
From jiu jitsu I have learned situational awareness. It gave me the skills and techniques to feel safe, and secure. Jiu jitsu has taught me respect. This is the glue that holds our world together.
Most of all, jiu jitsu has afforded me the ability to be more in control of myself. And this means I can respond appropriately to whoever or whatever is around me.
This is why I am compelled to share this with our kids of today, and thus the adults of tomorrow.
Jits4Kids will start on Monday 13th February.
I promise to teach fun, and effective Gracie Jiu Jitsu self defence. I ensure a safe, and playful environment. And I commit to being their coach, and a sensei that will gently guide them along a path of good health and virtue.
