BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU ARRIVES IN LANGWORTHY

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is one of the world's fastest growing martial arts and now a new studio, Jiu Jitsu Technics, has opened up off South Langworthy Road run by Salford's Mike Dorrian, who wants to spread the word and involve local schools, youth centres and businesses in the art of self defence.

Yesterday, World Champion Manny Diaz visited the studio to give a masterclass….

Technique Conquers All…

Tucked away amongst industrial units on Kansas Avenue, off South Langworthy Road, near MediaCityUK, is a spotless state of the art studio specialising in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Which sounds strange because martial arts usually have connotations with the Far East.

"We're affiliated to Ciao Terra, who's a Brazilian guy, only about 26, and he's already eight times world champion" says Salford's Mike Dorrian, a purple belt who has set up the studio after learning the art in California.

"What we teach is a spin on modern techniques that he's made his own and actually used in competitions" he adds "It actually works."

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, or BJJ, was created by Carlos Gracie Snr, and designed as a self defence martial art geared towards helping a smaller person to protect themselves against a much larger opponent, not by using strength but using sound technique.

"By using technique and leverage, a smaller person could help to control a much larger opponent with minimal force" explains Mike "There is no striking whatsoever in BJJ, thus making this sport suitable for everyone, children, teens and adults alike.

"We teach BJJ not as a fighting tool but as a self defence system" he adds "We actually teach the opposite of fighting, we teach many different techniques to avoid confrontation, and how to avoid confrontation. The defence techniques used should only be used by students to defend themselves should they ever be attacked."

Already, Mike's Jiu Jitsu Technics studio has been used by a business on Salford Quays, after some of its employees were mugged on the way home from work, while there are also Kids Bully Proof programmes in operation too.

"The younger classes are designed to help children protect themselves, not only today if they was to be bullied in or out of school, but as a measure to defend themselves in the future" he says "The classes we run have been very successful so far with all of our students bringing friends along and helping spread our message to local communities. It's based around our adult programme but with the addition of lots of games to make our classes as enjoyable as possible."

As part of the studio's community project it is looking to involve local schools community groups and youth centres, by providing classes in and out of schools, and, in particular, working with young people who may have behavioural problems.

"Our kids, junior and student programme was created to provide students with an environment that allows them to experience and understand core values like focus, discipline, persistence, dedication and most of all respect" says Mike "Respect not only for there fellow students, but respect for their parents, siblings, teachers and themselves. We believe that channelling their energy into BJJ would be a great thing, not only for themselves but for the school and parents."

Currently Mike has students aged from five to 55 training at the studio six days a week, and yesterday they got to see, first hand, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu World Champion Manny Diaz, who came to Salford to run a masterclass.

Salford Star photographer, Gareth Lyons, who went down to take pictures, was well impressed, marvelling at how so little strength could inflict so much pain upon an attacker. Gareth says that the techniques taught certainly work!

"We just want to spread the message as to what Brazilian Jui Jitsu is, as it's relatively new in comparison to judo and karate" says Mike "In order to spread our techniques and our values to children and adults we would like to offer a free week of training to anyone interested in learning what BJJ is all about. They can just come down to the gym and train for free."

You can't get a better offer than that!

Jiu Jitsu Technics is situated at 36 Kansas Avenue, off South Langworthy Road, M50 2GL.

OVER £100,000 SALFORD PARENT SCHOOL FINES NOT GOING BACK INTO SCHOOLS

Star date: 15th November 2018

CASH-STRAPPED SALFORD SCHOOLS NOT BENEFITING FROM PARENTAL FINES

A Freedom of Information response from Salford City Council has revealed that during the year 2017-18, £118,920 income was received from parental fines but didn't go directly to help cash-strapped schools in the city. Instead the money went to 'support council services generally'.

"I think the money should go back into education as the lack of funding is clearly apparent" says parent Mandi Lee, who put in the FOI request.

SALFORD CITY COUNCIL TO FINALLY TIGHTEN UP ON PUPPY SELLERS

Star date: 14th November 2018

NEW REGULATIONS MEAN TIGHTER CONTROL OF ANIMAL BUSINESSES

New laws on the sales and keeping of animals mean that Salford City Council will be forced to tighten up on regulating puppy sellers and animal keepers through new national regulations.

One of the biggest changes is that a puppy at a breeder's "may only be shown to a prospective purchaser if it is together with its biological mother", and that inspections of premises are to be carried out by a qualified inspector, rather than the Council's Environment Health Team.

PENDLETON TENANTS ARE FOUR YEARS FROM SAFETY

The nine blocks of dangerous flats in Pendleton, owned by Salford City Council and managed by Pendleton Together, won't be safe as buildings until 2022, according to the latest accounts posted by Pendleton Together Operating Ltd.

External cladding work, the accounts state, will be completed by 2021 but other internal fire safety measures won't be complete until 2022. Meanwhile, the company recorded a loss of £23.5million last year, and adds that the "cost of further works are estimated to be £35.5million".

PEEL HOLDINGS REFUSED PERMISSION TO BUILD HOUSING ON SALFORD GREENWAY BY SECRETARY OF STATE

Star date: 12th November 2018

SECRETARY OF STATE DISMISSES PEEL HOLDINGS APPEAL TO BUILD 600 HOUSES ON WORSLEY GREENWAY

This morning, the Secretary of State at the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government has dismissed Peel Holdings' appeal against Salford City Council's refusal to allow the company to build up to 600 houses in the Broad Oak area of the Worsley Greenway.

The Secretary of State agreed with the Inspector that "the proposals would impact negatively on the character and appearance of the Greenway". Noel Gaskell, from RAID, the community group that opposed the development, told the Salford Star "It shows want can be achieved when the general public put their minds to stopping developments that would cause huge problems to the residents."

SALFORD UNIVERSAL CREDIT CLAIMANT TOLD TO LIVE ON £47 A WEEK

Star date: 12th November 2018

'HOW AM I GOING TO MANAGE? I HAVEN'T GOT A CLUE...'

A Salford Universal credit claimant has been told that she must live on just £47 per week, or £190 per month, after 'migrating' from Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)... "How am I going to manage? I haven't got a clue" she tells the Salford Star.

This latest disgusting poverty setback comes on top of the shock of her father dying from a heart attack while waiting for a DWP appeal, after being told he was fit for work. His case, in retrospect, is being heard by an upper tribunal this week.
