I started Jiu Jitsu when I was 6 years old. I have used this martial art as a tool to gain the confidence; fitness and determination which has helped me achieve my academic, musical and sporting ambitions. I’ve made many, strong long-term friendships nationally and internationally through Jiu Jitsu. Jiu Jitsu has made me become more resilient as a person. It’s given me the confidence to face bullies, holding my own voice, being articulate in interviews, having humility and strong self-discipline.
Turning 18 and crossing over to the adult jitsu world has been an amazing experience. Holding a senior first dan and officially being called “Sensei” is a great feeling of success and responsibility. It’s a great feeling to know all my previous experience in teaching and training so far has been credited by the Jitsu foundation.
I am excited for the future; especially when I move to university to train with a new jitsuka family. I feel this martial art will always benefit me in life and will benefit me more and more as I continue to progress. I’m currently looking forward to my year out teaching the Beckfoot Jitsu club as my main club to develop the Adult and Junior Grades there but also teaching regional courses and competing in the senior competitions.
There’s been some amazing experiences in my Jitsu Career, but so far but one of my proudest moments was being awarded my junior second dan grade by the grading panel and Sensei Dave walker mentioning that I will be a great ambassador for the Jiu Jitsu Foundation in the future.
