On Tuesday the 2nd of October, Colin Poole (47) from North Allington graduated as a 5th Kyu Jiu-Jitsu Self Defense. Colin is the one hundredth student of Master Horst Lindenau (60)to graduate from the Bridport public in this system. Horst, (who was born Germany) has lived in Bridport for over 20 years and started teaching martial arts here in 1993 at the Bridport Leisure Centre.
Colin Poole joined the Bradpole based Jiu-Jitsu club in March 2012 and after six months he could show his new knowledge with his training partner Damon Allen (48), 2nd Kyu in Self Defense and black belt holder in the art of Spirit Combat.
The style Master Horst teaches is based purely on self defense, personal fitness and well-being, rather than sport or competitions. The Bridport Jiu-Jitsu Club meets every Tuesday at Loders Village Hall at 7pm.
