Hi, I'm Joss, I'm only 15 and I've been doing ju-jitsu for around.. a month now, nearly two. I'm only a white belt but I'm enjoying it. I tried my hand at kickboxing, judo and something called British Free fighting but I never found any passion in them. But since I started Ju Jitsu It's felt different to everything else I tried, better. I'm also coming up to a seminar with a Japanese grandmaster, abit daunting but I'm sure I'll enjoy it, the Tanaka family, if I remember rightly, although I probably haven't, Father and Daughter are coming. Anyway just thought I'd say Hi and introduce myself to everyone, any tips would be welcome as I'm dying to learn as much as I can. :-D

Hmm, Blue belt from Royce, but training has been intermittent since I left Sheffield.

Andy, good luck with your academy, when and where are you opening it?

"Dom as in 'The' Dom?"

yes, I suppose I am. Anyone know anywhere worth training near Worcester? I can't find anything good, without travelling to Birmingham.

Right then,

Did Judo training for a number of years, was favourite 4 years running for the Nationals (though only went twice,) fought in International Opens a couple of times and touched 4th Kyu (lower blue senior) before taking a break for a year.

Hath returned to Judo and have just started Ju-Jitsu. No longer intend to compete in Judo, but may compete in Ju-Jitsu at a later date. Also looking to join either Karate or Tai Chi, probably after Christmas.

Just out of interest, what does BJJ and TJJ stand for, and what's the difference? And if the T is for Traditional, what's the difference then?

If at first you don't suceed,

BJJ = Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. More takedowns and groundwork rather than standing joint-locks and strikes.
