Sensei Dave is an absolutely fantastic teacher and has such a fantastic way of working with the kids. Oliver has been coming on and off during the last year or so and thoroughly enjoys himself. Oliver was apprehensive about coming at first but Dave always manages to put his mind at ease instantly and gets him involved in the class. Oliver cannot wait for his class each week and is very excited to learn more with the hope he'll eventually get to work towards his belts.

I have been training at Shinka Ju-Jitsu for just over 12 months now and can honestly say it was a great decision. Dave is an excellent teacher who has many years training and the knowledge to help me and others improve. All the students at the club are friendly and approachable, making the session fun and engaging. Keep up the good work Dave!!!

Great Ju-Jitsu academy. Sensei Dave is always helpful and friendly, and makes the training for the children fun whilst learning new skills. A great place to start learning martial arts. Covid measures all in place, so you feel safe. Would recommend!
