Hi,

I wondered if any one could help, I'm looking for a Traditional Jujitsu club in Scunthorpe, I've looked all over the internet and cant find anything. Just wondered if any of you guys knew.

Many Thanks

Paul

Hey Paul,

Not sure of a traditional place.

Think I heard of a Gracie Barra place in Scunny, although I could be making that up, perhaps I'm thinking of Donny. :-/

I'd be seriously surprised if there wasn't anything in Scunny, what you searching for on Google? Whatever you're searching for, make sure you go to a few pages on Google, their website just might not be that good to get on page one.

Let us know how ya get on, or what you're able to find - with knowing what you can find, we might be able to find more.

Cheers,

Rob

Hey Rob,

Cheers for the reply, Searched for "Jujitsu Scunthorpe" Went 10 pages plus, but no luck infortunatey. The only thing i can find is 7ks, they do kickboxing & Jujitsu, but they are £50 a month with a years contract. If my job was safe i woulnt mind that, but it not that safe at the minute so dont want to tie myself down just incase.
Yeah i'd be suprised if there is nothing, i'll keep asking around and see what i can find.

Cheers

Hey Paul,

Have you trained anywhere before? Or is this something new for ya?

I'd personally steer clear of anywhere looking for a 12 month contract regardless (perhaps they're feeling the pinch too tho, so you can understand why they're doing it).

It's still prob worth a look tho, go down for an intro session, but be clear in your own mind you're not gonna sign up.

No doubt they'll offer you some sort of discount for signing up on the day, but if you're gonna be there for years, then what's the real value in a discount anyway?

ie, you may as well go for an intro, and go away and think about it. Like I said, if it's gonna be a place you're gonna train at for years to come, that initial discount they're willing to offer right now will mean nothing in a year or so. So don't be pressured.

Let's face it, if it's that gooda place, why would you need tying down to a contract? Depending on your personality, perhaps something worth asking? :o)

Some places may offer a 30-day money back guarantee, but that'll no doubt be quite strict too, ie, having to go to 2 sessions a week, etc.

Finally, if it's purely "Ju-Jitsu" you're really looking for, be a bit careful of "mixed" places like this. It could be a great Ju-Jitsu place, or it could be a great Kickboxing place who do the odd class of "Ju-Jitsu", or might not actually have any really decent Ju-Jitsu instructors.

Just side on the air of caution.

Have ya tried the Yellow Pages too?

I'm from Grimsby originally and there was 2-3 clubs there, can't believe there's no clubs in Scunny.

Hey Rob,

I have trained before, Just not in JuJitsu, I'm 1st Kyu in Shotokan, and trained for over a year in Kickboxing, but i've wanted to try jujitsu for a while now.
I think same as you, i'd prefer to stay clear of the 12 month contacts, but think i'll pop down tomorrow for a nosey, see if they do any intro's and check out who works there and what they do etc.
Tried the yellow pages too, just a couple of TKD places in there, so no luck. I have found one in Grimsby actually, i may even consider poping over and checking it out, it's a bit far than i wanted to go, but if i cant find anything closer i may give it a shot.

Cheers
Paul

I'm cr*p with Geography, but isn't Donny closer? As I said earlier, they have a great BJJ place.

Although I guess if it's traditional you're after maybe not.

Then again, have ya tried looking a bit further a-field for traditional places?

There must be loads teaching out of church-halls and the like, but without websites.

Thanks for reply's.

Yeah louth prob a bit to far, about 40 miles i think, but thanks for the reply.

I think donny might be a little bit closer, 20 odd miles, i'll definetly consider it if i cant find any closer. I visit gainsborough quite often aswell, so might see if i can find anything round there too.

Cheers
