Q. Do I have to be under a specific age to join? A. No, everybody has the right to feel safe and have the ability to do so.
Q. Am I liable to get injured practising Ju-jitsu? A. As with all contact sports, there is a small chance that injuries will be sustained, but all the instructors are qualified first aid persons and the techniques are taught in such a manner to minimise the risk of injury at all times. Safety is essential to our continued practice and thus one of our highest priorities.
Q. Am I insured to participate? A. There is a small fee, payable annually to the "Jikishin Ju-jitsu Association" which covers you while you are training
Q. Are there any medical conditions that would preclude me from training? A. Yes, due to the nature of the art, haemophiliacs are not allowed to participate, purely for their own safety.
Q. Can women participate in the classes or are their separate classes? A. All classes are mixed, in fact it is more beneficial to the women as they get to practice real techniques on a variety of people (weight, size, etc) which enables them to get a better feel for what they are capable of.
