Potters Bar Ju Jitsu Club

Potters Bar 2

Welcome to Potters Bar Dojo  

The Furzefield Centre Founded in January 2002 by Kevin Pell Hanshi, for children in and around the Potters Bar area. The lessons are taught by Thomas Garvin Sempai, who has been training with Ishin Ryu since he was 4 years old, and has worked is way up to be a Ishin Ryu coach.

The lessons provide a high level of coaching for children aged (4-13).  Children are taught in a safe environment where they undertake team and listening games as a warm up ready for their lessons, which cover self defence, discipline and etiquette, grappling and fitness.

We also have an Intermediate class also taught by Thomas Garvin Sempai. Aimed at teenagers between 13-16 this class teaches adult techniques from our syllabus. This gives the teenagers an insight into how the adults train and prepares them for our  adult classes taught at Borehamwood or Bushey.
