I guess I'm kind of not training? Does boxing count?
I could go to a TJJ across the street where I don't get to fight, or back to my judo half and hour away, where I've not been for a year nearly.
Why does it seem so hard to go back? I'm not sure I'm ready for the commitment

I've always found it's just a case of getting the ball rolling again, that's always a pain, but then i'm phsyched up again.

Anyone else in the wilds of the Lake District?
Or even Cumbria?
Thought not, I teach Mon, Wed, Fri nights - Bugeisha Jitsu, Thus Aft. Chi Gung and the rest of the time I fish, life's tough.
I've got a really jiggly class at the moment, lots of teen age girls - very jiggly but strictly out of bounds, fun watching though.
Here's a thing for all you instructors who can be bothered to get this far.
The older you get, the more you become a father/grandfather figure and the more students want you to help sort out their problems - not fun!
10 years ago I was the problem, now I'm only good for confiding in but you takes what you're given I suppose.
What I really want is a nubile 45 year old - do they exist?

Dear all;

I teach my own system of Ju-Jitsu (Master Sawyer's Ju-Jitsu)in Le Marche, Italy (I own and operate a residential martial arts and retreat centre here).

I used to have clubs in England, but no longer. Me, my wife and kids moved here two and a half years ago, after I was medically retired from London's Metropolitan Police Service (attacked by a gang and badly injured).

My system is very eclectic, containing elements of Boxing, Muay-Thai and Kali (systems I have substantially dross-trained in over the years - this is my 28th year in Ju-Jitsu). I'm also about to train and qualify as an instructor in Commando Krav Maga.

At my centre here in Le Marche, I have a superb local instructor: Mr.Domenico Merrante - he was five times national Muay-Thai and Kick-Boxing champion and an excellent and successful amateur boxer. He teaches BJJ here for us, and runs courses in Muay-Thai and Boxing.
So between the two of us we offer:

Boxing, Thai, Master Sawyer's Goshin-Ryu Ju-Jitsu, BJJ, and Kick-Boxing. Also soon: Commando Krav Maga.

I train with Mr. Merrante in Muay-Thai and will soon (fingers crossed and time permitting start BJJ with him).

If anyone fancies visiting, please see my website at: www.mettacentre.com

Love and respect,
Jeff Sawyer
