10 months ago I signed up for Kingston Jiu Jitsu’s beginner’s course and it’s proven to be one of my best decision to date. The classes taught me some self-defence techniques as well as the fundamentals of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, giving me the confidence and eagerness to continue training after the course completed. Starting a martial art can be intimidating, I was hesitant at first, but Marc’s friendly welcoming nature made it easy to come back week after week. My training partners became my friends fast! That’s a testament to the club spirit Marc and Nic have created here!” – Joshua Sadraoui – Kingston Jiu Jitsu student

The thing that struck me immediately about my first evening at the Beginners course was the supportive atmosphere. Marc and the other students made me feel so welcome. I felt comfortable being a beginner and this was key. At the end of the class, I knew that I had found my school and that Jiu-Jitsu would be part of my life moving forward. I can’t recommend this club any more highly. Marc is an excellent Jiu-Jitsu teacher” – Marvin Reid – Senior Occupational Therapist and Yoga Teacher
