Jikishin Ju Jitsu Association National Course & Championships 2005

Report & Results

National Course & Competition 2005 - All Students Line UpThe 12th Jikishin Championships started with a bang, as the fireworks displays in Southend were going off everywhere on the Friday 5th November, the night before the big day. Many of the instructors, officials, competitors and participants were booked into the Westcliff Hotel, where the entertainment was a tribute band to Elvis and Queen – an interesting night was experienced by all those attending. The service at the bar was a little slow, and one or two people experienced the occasional problem, but generally everyone liked the new hotel location – right on the front. The mat laying teams, led by Bob Wallis, had been in action getting the Southend Leisure and Tennis Centre ready for the early start on Saturday.

Southend 2005 - Kids GamesThe course got off to a swift start. There were a lot of children this year (over 300) and as always this was a tough job, well handled by the team led by Ian Arbon. The senior instructors on the course were introduced by Professor Terry Parker, and Sensei Brian Herbert then took over the organisation of the day’s activities. The first was the warm-up, followed by the allocation of the mats to the various belts, and the instructors began doing their thing. Unfortunately, due to injury and other commitments, John Steadman, Martin & Sheila Dixon and Jimmy Pape were either unable to attend, or teach this year, and I am sure that they were sorely missed. The course was excellent, however, and the majority of the Ju Jitsuka who I spoke to felt that this had been one of the best courses they had attended – new guys as well as some of the old stagers who are now 2nd, 3rd and 4th Dans.

Many new techniques were shown, and the instructors always ran out of time before they ran out of things to show. This is a natural consequence of having so many world class instructors attending – the time has to be short, necessarily, in order for the majority of students to get some time from each of the instructors. It is good as the majority of those attending the course got to see the differing styles of which are practiced not only within the UK, but elsewhere in the world.

Sensei Gino Teaching on the MatThe course was over, too quickly for most, but certainly not soon enough for those competing in the afternoon. The lunch break (for some) was called, and those who were officiating went off to change into their Officials uniforms, eat something quickly, and get back to start refereeing, judging and assisting on the various mats. Janet Parker and Lorraine Lunney were seen in the bar, not drinking, but trying to accommodate those competitors who had either changed the event that they wished to compete in, had decided to withdraw, or simply correcting incorrect weights, categories etc. A very big job to have to do on the day.

Groundfighting in the CompetitionIn the afternoon, the competitions commenced with the junior competitors, and once again the standard was higher than last year. This has been the case for a number of years, and it is very gratifying to all of the sensei attending to see the level of performance rising. This does have consequences in that it becomes more and more difficult to gain a medal; the upside is that the medal that is gained is all the more precious for the difficulties experienced in gaining it.

Groundfighting in the CompetitionIf there is a criticism, it is that some of the youngsters, whilst understanding what they have to do to compete, had not been instructed in how the matches proceed, and the protocols of competition. This did not spoil the day, but I am sure that there were more than a few youngsters who were confused by the requirements, and more than one child on the Random Attacks had to be guided by the referees and assistants throughout the whole process – come on sensei’s – let’s get the kids competition ready and train them in the etiquette as well as the fighting.

Kids Sparring in the CompetitionWhat a day! The competition standard was superb, the competitors ready for the competitions, the winners triumphant, and the losers looking to where and what they can improve for next year. The results, for those who wish to view them, are available above.

For many the day was a long hard days work, but extremely rewarding – the day finished on time, and the medal presentation was completed with the official photographer taking pictures of all of the medal winners (as well as loads of photo’s during the competitions) and he seemed to be doing quite good business. The day was far from over for those staying at the hotel, a meal, disco and late night was planned, and the plan was executed with much gusto – the evening sped by and there were one or two sore heads in the dining room for breakfast on the Sunday Morning.

The conclusion is that this was yet another successful year, another successful course, and another successful championship. Let’s hope that it continues for many years to come.

From the Head of Jikishin

Hanshi Brian Herbert - HostThis year was one of the most, if not the most, successful course and Championships to date and credit this must go down to the support by the sensei’s and the people who helped organise the event.

I would like to personnel thank Bob Wallis for organising the mats and mat areas and for being the day event organiser. Thanks to Alan Stone for helping with the hall arrangements, sound system and photographer, to Ian Arbon for the warm up looking after the juniors and arranging first aid cover.

Well done and thanks to: Vince Bull, Kevin Bull and Ray Egleton the officials for organising the hall especially when everyone arrived at the hall. Earl Walker for the write up, and excellent upkeep of the website. To all the sensei’s and pupils for their support, all of those who gave up their time to assist before, and on the day, and a big thank you to Lorraine Lunney who spent many long evenings helping me for many weeks organising the competitions, mat areas referees and judges.

WELL DONE EVERYONE

Thanks,

Hanshi Brian Herbert
