Students Learn To Defend Themselves

Twenty students from Norham High School, in North Shields embarked on ten weeks of self defence training with North Shields based Serenity Jiu Jitsu in the winter term 2017/18. Sean Harris, Assistant Headteacher for personal development, behaviour and wellbeing, says "Serenity Jiu Jitsu worked closely offering one on one support for pupils. The pupils had very limited experience of martial arts and, as a result of Serenity Jiu Jitsu's influence, have a real passion for martial arts and many are already taking this up in their personal time. We have also noticed an improved attitude to learning and sense of personal drive for many of the pupils too".


Serenity Jiu Jitsu, owned up by Jonathan Poulter, 32 year old secondary school teacher, arranged a bespoke self defence programme for Norham High School. Mr Poulter said “I wanted the students to understand the fundamentals of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) and self defence in a practical, safe and enjoyable environment. I’ve enjoyed teaching the students at Norham High School and thank Mr Harris for allowing this opportunity to arise”. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a contact sport that is based around leverage, rather than strength, and timing to overcome an opponent, with classes in gi and no-gi disciplines and suitable for all ages. Practicing a martial art, particularly Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, has been shown to build confidence, improve safety and awareness skills, and better health, body and mind.
