We also have opted to begin a Competition Jujitsu Team. These individuals will be competing in our local tournaments, they will also be travelling to a select number of tournaments, and they will be performing in demonstrations. They will be receiving a special patch, for their gis and will have the option of purchasing a team jacket. They will be practicing and training in a designated class, in addition to their regular Jujitsu Class. We will be talking more about our New Competition Jujitsu Team.
