Every day millions of people participate in sport; such as coaches, athletes, volunteers, referees and organisers. For the majority, this is a positive experience that develops social networks, confidence, skills and knowledge. For some the experience is negative.
'I was a child in this sport and my children have practiced this sport. Because of this, I feel more strongly than ever that, as well as a legal responsibility, we have a moral obligation to protect children and vulnerable adults'

Having studied this modern form of Jiu-Jitsu I can highly recommend it to anyone wanting to focus on self-defence, as opposed to sport. Using locks, throws and strikes Jitsu focuses on scenarios relating to modern life : (less armour and fewer horses, more punches and pub brawl type attacks). CJC teaches self-defence including some of the highly effective techniques learned from 'Jitsu'.
The Cirencester website is probably the longest running Cirencester related website, having been promoting Cirencester since 1998.
While the Cirencester website has a wealth of information for visitors, there's also plenty for people who are lucky enough to live in this lovely part of the world.
