"I am constantly looking for new Ideas to enhance my own skills.  I like to encourage my students to think for themselves, and do not delude them into thinking that our style is the only way".

"I welcome all students from all  walks of life and different forms of martial art to join us, Ju Jitsu is our style but all fighting arts compliment each other"

Ged Ramsdale.
