Bullying, There’s is no secret answer on how to deal with bullies. Telling someone about is defiantly a step in the right direction. Classmates can make fun of you because of your hair, size, or what you wear.

If you feel you can, talk to a teacher you trust or a family member. The experiences of being bullied are not pleasant,  keeping a diary can help as evidence for the future.

Don’t retaliate, you could make it worse or even be seen as a bully.
Surround yourself with people who make you feel good. Be kind to yourself, and do things that make you feel good, relax, and make new friends.  You might make music; write lyrics; draw cartoons; dance; act or join a sports club.  This is your life so make sure it’s the best life possible – don’t let anyone bring you down.

Junior brown belt grading success

One of our juniors successfully graded over the weekend to gain their 2nd Kyu brown belt and passed with flying colours. 12 yr old Layla conducted herself perfectly over the 70 mins grilled by senior instructor Sensei Andy Walker.

Layla’s future at Poole Ju jitsu looks bright. She is now the highest graded junior at the club and that’s with her junior coaching qualification which she picked up before lockdown. Layla was watched on by her mum who was delighted with her daughter’s character and skill shown throughout the grading. Layla can relax and focus on her school work until she has covered the elements of the 1st Kyu syllabus and move onto looking at the black belt grading in two years time.

Champagne Reception

The club hosted a champagne reception to celebrate two local artists who have left their mark at the centre.

Local artist Rachel Farrugia was commissioned over a year ago to paint a full size Samurai on the back wall of the centre and holds centre place at the club. A local graffiti artist who is travelling the world was commissioned to paint two large murals with a martial arts theme to cover the rest of the back wall.

The celebrations lasted until late in the evening after speeches by the instructors and photos.
