Sensei Nigel Goodwin 3rd Dan.

Picture of Ged. dot_clear.gif (43 bytes)I'm Sensei Nigel Goodwin, trained by Sensei Ramsdale and Sensei Sims, I'm senior instructor in the New Spirit School of Ju Jitsu. I was born on 16th June 1955, and started Ju Jitsu when I was 40 years old, following in the footsteps of my daughter Melissa who started when she was only five. I believe to give good Ju Jitsu tuition to juniors (particularly the younger ones!) requires a decent instructor/student ratio - at New Spirit we are pleased to be able to achieve this, and the skill levels of the youngsters reflects the attention they receive.
