What are Sempai? Sempai are the assistant to the instructor. They help the head instructor of the class out on the mat with junior students. Jikishin Ju-Jitsu is proud to have a strong volunteer Sempai program made up of parents, teens and senior students.
The benefit is that it allows more one on one instruction and supervision on the mat, plus the parents who participate are able to practice and train with their children in class and at home, which is an added bonus.
All Sempai must undertake our Sempai training course, have a current Working with Children check where required (under 18’s there is no requirement) and where possible a valid First Aid Certificate.
Jikishin Ju-Jitsu also has a child protection policy and code of conduct that all instructors, sempai, parents and student must adhere to.
