New Ju-Jitsu Club in Bradford proves huge hit thanks to West Yorkshire Sport

0 0
A Ju-Jitsu Club in Bradford has become the latest to set up a satellite club for young people. 

The origins of the new satellite club go back to 2000 when Mumtaz Khan founded Onna Ju-Jitsu Club. 

Over the last 13 years, her club has become one of Yorkshire's most successful organisations with over 400 students training in Bradford and the surrounding districts.

In November, Khan started a new Ju-Jitsu Club based at Zara Sports Centre linked to the established Onna Ju-Jitsu Club. 

This new club is the first to be funded by West Yorkshire Sport as part of Sport England’s new satellite club intervention. 

New satellite clubs like this will help Sport England provide more opportunities for young people to get active, on their doorstep. 

The club has been a huge hit since with the girls at Belle Vue Girls Secondary School since its launch - with over 25 Asian girls between 11-16 year old attending every week.

All are now aiming to get their white belts in March.

"My aim is for these girls to leave school with their black belts,” said Khan.

"I would then like to see them become qualified leaders in Ju-Jitsu.”

Onna Ju-Jitsu Club strives to support as many young people as possible interested in becoming a coach, providing qualifications and development opportunities.

"‘It’s changed my life and I love it,” said one of the young leaders. 

The new club offers the chance to try something new whilst teaching valuable skills for life.
