Is anyone training at Wajyutsu Keisyukai in Ochanomizu at the moment? I went for a trial lesson a few months ago and got my arse beaten and now I'm scared to go back. I think I went on one of the professional fighter training days. So I'm just wondering when the beginner days were? I'm not a total beginner, I just don't want to get beaten on so much. Also, do you think it would be alright to come late to weekday classes? I can't really come on time, I can only get there by eight or nine or so. What time do they usually finish training there? I heard 11.30, but on the day I went it finished about 10.30. Any information at all would be appreciated.

Roxy trains out of there and yeah,..if you're not ready for the "pro class",.you may be in for a shock. Great training there though and you know you'll get better REAL fast by training there. Roxy may read this and get back to you soon. - Juggs

In reality there aren't really seperate beginner and pro days as such (at least not at HQ). The technique practice is called a beginners class, but its a mixed bag of people that turn up. Anytime after 8 or so is when any semblence of a class is over and most of the serious compeitiors turn up for sparring.

Fridays is pretty casual usually, the big days are Mondays, and to a lesser extent Tuesdays and Thursdays, with Wednesdays being a Gi session.

Then again there is always a big spread of abilities in the room, especially when I'm there to drag down the average...

Hi everyone,

I'm thinking about training at WK for a week if possible. My friend was training there but has just gone back to the UK. Is anyone from here likely to still be training there from 5th to the 11th of june?

thanks

Wow, I just rediscovered this forum. Sorry if you didn't have a pleasant experience.

Things are getting more organized now....
The teachers start the beginner's class at about 7:15 Tuesdays and Thursdays and Sundays. At 8:30, the technique class ends and the sparring begins.

ON Mondays, it's the pro practice, so unless you are a pro, I suggest against going. Wednesday is the 'gi' class- I never went. Fridays is MMA sparring, probably a combination between pro practice, and regular sparring. It's okay to go. Saturday is more open, anyone goes!

Let me know if you would like to give it another shot. Feel free to message me.
