About Us

Surrey Jitsu is just as unique as its members. Incorporating students from the nearby University of Surrey and residents from Guildford and the surrounding areas into one amazing family. 

Sensei Sam

I'm Sam, one of the club instructors at Surrey Jitsu Club. I'll be the one showing you what to do and convincing you your training partner really deserves that punch in the face!

Sensei Kieran

Hi! I'm Sensei Kieran, the newest addition to the Sensei Squad. I started Jitsu right here at Surrey three and a half years ago, and got my brown belt just before Christmas 2018! You can generally find me floating around on the mat telling people to move their feet, so come and say hi, I won't hurt you .....too much

Sensei Ivor

Hi! I'm Sensei Ivor. I've been doing Jitsu since I was at university myself. I look forward to seeing you at one of our sessions soon! I no longer teach here permanently but pop along every now and again to say hi.

Yvonne- Secretary

Hi, I'm Yvonne. I'm the secretary so I'll handle memberships, licences and other things. And I hope to see you at the club

Alice - Chair

Hiya! I'm Alice the chair for Surrey Jitsu. I'm back from a year on placement and I'm really excited to be chair again. Jitsu has been a part of my life since I was a kid, so I should be able to help you out with any questions you've got :) I've got loads of ideas for the next year but I'm always open to new suggestions so feel free to grab me after a session or ping me a message.

See you soon! 

Keshav- Secretary

Hi, I'm Keshav. I'm the secretary so I'll manage the memberships, licences and any other forms. I'm currently studying ChemEng and I joined the club at Freshers Fair last year as I thought it would help me keep more active during the week as well as give me more confidence in myself. The training sessions have always been so much fun and I have made so many good friends. Hope to see you soon!

Carol - Town Club Rep

Hey! I’m Carol, I’ve been doing Jitsu since 2014 and have been on the committee nearly as long. Any questions about Surrey Jitsu, come find me, I’ll likely be on the mat throwing some people around, pretending to be John Wick.

Nat - Town Club Rep

Info coming soon...

Peter - Kit Manager

Hi, I'm Peter and my job is to make sure the equipment bags are all stocked so that we can clean up the blood quickly, among other things. I am the general jobs guy so I should be able to help with most things!

Damon - Town Club Rep

I'm Damon, one of the Reps for the town club. I'm very old and first started Jitsu 30 years ago, then had a 25 year break! I've now been training since 2014. Among other things I am a first aid instructor and one of the clubs first aiders but I hope you never need my skills! As well as throwing people around I also like playing with the long sticks!

Pending - Treasurer

Currently we are without a Treasurer but elections are being held at the start of the year, and we are welcoming all applicants! More information coming soon...

Alex - Social Sec

I'm Alex, and I've been training with the club since I first came to Surrey in 2015. You'll hear jokes about me injuring myself, but I promise it's rarely because of Jitsu! I've made it to light blue belt and previously led the uni club committee, and now this year I'm returning as the Social Sec.
