Sensei Alex Chapman has over 30 years experience of training in ju jitsu and has now achieved 6th dan black belt, quite a considerable achievement. Sensei Chapman was awarded his first dan black belt in 1981 and began his instructional career shortly thereafter in Cowdenbeath taking over the reins in Kirkcaldy in 1986. Alex is supported by several other black belts in Kirkcaldy School so there is no shortage of help and support on the mat.
Kirkcaldy School of Ju Jitsu prides itself on being a dojo where you can learn an efficient self defence martial art in a safe and secure environment. We have a paticularly friendly and welcoming atmosphere and all are welcome regardless of whether you wish to sit gradings and progress through the coloured belts to the coveted black belt, learn an efficient self defence martial art or simply get fit.
Ju Jitsu has a vast repertoire of techniques and includes joint manipulation, throwing, striking, kicking and evasion techniques. In the Kirkcaldy School you will discover all of these techniques and more and be shown how do develop them to allow you to practice these techniques to the best of your personal ability. In addition to the core Ju Jitsu techniques the potential exists for students to experience Kobujitsu, an art that involves study of Japanese weapons including the tonfa and nunchakus including several others. Weapons work may not be particularly practical for self defence in today’s society however it is thoroughly enjoyable and it provides an invaluable insight into the techniques of ju jitsu.
Classes cost £5.00 for adults and £3.00 for children so please pay us a visit and if you like what you see why not join us on the mat where you will really understand just how beneficial and satisfying training with us can be. Our prices are competitive because our instructors are not paid and all funds go to hall hire and equipment purchase.
