Bridgewater PCYC attracts international jiu jitsu instructor

AS a result of generous support from the Tasmanian Community Fund, the Bridgewater PCYC is delighted that Tasmania’s only black belt holder with current affiliation to both the International and Australian Federation’s of Brazilian jiu jitsu is now teaching at the Bridgewater PCYC.

For the past six years Minol Traveres Tutida has taught in Japan, Brazil and Tasmania.  His success as an instructor was highlighted last year with his Tasmanian club topping the team points category of the Australian Brazilian jiu jitsu titles.

Wilson jiu jitsu and the Tasmanian Community Fund have been instrumental in the total refurbishment of the Bridgewater PCYC’s martial arts facilities with brand new floor and wall mats installed in May 2009.

Wilson jiu jitsu is currently offering two children’s classes a week on Mondays and Tuesdays from 4.30-5.30pm and female only self defence classes on Tuesdays from 5.30-6.30pm.  Private instruction is also available by arrangement.

In collaboration with PCYC Wilson jiu jitsu offers children the opportunity for limited scholarship positions which includes membership fees, uniform and session costs for up to 10 weeks.
