  1. How I miss the good old days with these fantastic people, never have I felt so stimulated, entertained, healthy, confident and enlightened all the same time. Without these people, my I would different person, lacking will and determination, they helped me create that within myself. Good friends and good times.

    Hi, Mark, you should pop in some time for a chat!!

    Cheers.

  2. On Sunday 19th January 2014 we held our 5th Annual Seminar and Awards Ceremony at John Smeaton Sports Centre. The day was a great success and all who attended had a fantastic time and enjoyed learning new martial arts techniques.

    The day would not have been a success without all the hard work from Grandmasters George Ross and David J Kacperski along with the many other instructors who gave their time on the day to teach our students.

    Congratulations again to all those students who received their awards and they are as follows
    Student of the year - Riccall - Toby Nuttall
    Student of the year - Kippax – Jack Wilson
    Junior Student of the year - John Smeaton - Katrina Bury
    Senior Student of the year - John Smeaton - Tanvir Lotay
    Best Attendance - Riccall – Cameran Jackson
    Best Attendance - Kippax – William McMaster
    Junior Best Attendance - John Smeaton – Louis Bambrook
    Senior Best Attendance - John Smeaton – Jordan Bland

    I would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate Sensei Chris Edson for being awarded his 1st Dan and Shihan Mike Douglas who received his 6th Dan Black Belt alongside myself. I am very privileged to receive such an honour and would like to thank both Soke David and Soke George for bestowing this upon me.

    Finally a huge thankyou to all Leeds Samurai Martial Arts Instructors, and our students as without all your hard work and dedication our clubs would not be as professional and successful as they are today – thank you!

    We would welcome your feedback of the day so please take some time to visit our website and leave your comments in the guestbook.

    Keep working hard in your jujitsu classes and if you didn’t receive an award this time, maybe you too will receive an award at our seminar next year.

    Best regards
    Shihan Patrick Powders

  50. i have been doing ju-jitsu since i was 12 years old and i would not be the person i am today without it.

    Everyone needs to know how to defend themselves in today society and Ju-Jitsu is the perfect way to do that, it teaches control, respect and above all self defence in a controlled environment.
