On February 11, 2023, Jack participated in the Roll Models BJJ competition at Ormiston Horizon Academy in Stoke. The event was smoothly organized with a welcoming atmosphere, and several BJJ clubs were present. Despite not having competed for a while, Jack delivered a great performance, leading for most of the round. Unfortunately, in the last minute, his opponent scored more points, but it was still a valuable experience. Jack remains determined, ready to reset, and looks forward to the next competition. Congratulations, Jack!

Muga Mushin Ryu Jujitsu Yudansha
On Saturday November 18th, I celebrated my four decades in my martial arts.
The day began with an energetic seminar at the Village Hotel in Liverpool. Martial artists traveled from all over the country to join in.
It was fantastic to see Jujitsu enthusiasts from various groups come together, led by John Grennhalgh Hanshi, Soke Kevin Pell and myself.
The seminar had an incredible turnout, with practitioners of different skill levels giving it their all. I’m deeply thankful to my dedicated students whose hard work truly showcased their commitment to their art, clubs, and affiliations.
As the evening unfolded, I expressed my gratitude, recognizing the dedication of my yudansha over the years, Celebrating Carl’s official entry into the committee, honored Steven with the title of Renshi for his unwavering 30-year commitment to jujitsu, and bestowed Sean with the Godan grade, an honor ratified and sanctioned by myself, John Greenhalgh Hanshi, Kenneth Culshaw Hanshi and Tom Starling Sensei.
The evening was filled with a mesmerizing performance by Japanese drummers, and I was moved by a commissioned musical piece from Mark Baker of Liverpool Clan Wallace.
Beyond the ceremonies, the evening allowed for reconnecting with old friends and making new connections.
A huge thank you to Andrew from Lemon Media for creating a captivating mini-documentary that captured the essence of this unforgettable event.
Best wishes,
Sue King Shihan.

It has been several years since we last conducted junior and cadet black belt gradings. However, on October 1st, at Mushin Honbu under the guidance of myself, Sean Hughes Renshi (4th dan), Steven Hughes Sensei (3rd dan), and Carl Grogan Sensei (2nd dan), we finally held one.
Connie, Max, and Joseph displayed incredible heart, resilience, commitment, and dedication to their craft especially considering that Max and Joseph started their journey at the age of 4.
The examination was rigorous, covering technical knowledge and live drills involving randori and grappling. We’d like to extend our gratitude to our ukes for generously dedicating their time to assist with this process.
Well done Joseph Max and Connie we look forward to you helping others achieve their goals.

No better Jiu-Jitsu academy for kids I don’t think I could find a better academy for my 2 kids. They absolutely love it! The teaching is simply fantastic and the whole atmosphere is welcoming and supportive, for both the kids and parents. Sensei Sue teaching style is inspirational - both technically brilliant and supportive. I can recommend Mushin Combat Academy to anyone looking for a Jiu-Jitsu school for their children.
