Claudia has been training for over 8 years and loves the challenge of learning new techniques. Never shying away from experimenting and exploring traditional Ju jitsu techniques as well as new street defence or competition techniques. As our club instructor, Claudia is always helping out teaching the adult members.
- Studied kick boxing
- 1st Dan
- Loves traditional weapons
Kick boxing has given me the edge in Ju jitsu sparring. I get a kick out of tapping the big boys on the nose with my glove.
Originally from Romania, I was lucky enough to find Poole Ju jitsu and never looked back. I've been training for 8 years in Ju jitsu and tried Thai Boxing, Aikido, Judo & Kung Fu.
Working for Lush cosmetics gives me time to train and develop my skills. My teenage son keeps me busy and I love the beach.
I love the intensity of the Ju jitsu techniques and won't be doing my 2nd dan anytime soon.
Claudia is a great sparring partner due to her background in kick boxing.
Being on the mat is a great stress relief for me. I really enjoy the variety of techniques and you can make them as simple or as complex as you like.
