10 regular push ups

10 wide grip push ups

7 sit ups

7 reverse crunches

7 half situps

All of the above in one 2 minute set x 20 sets.

3rd Place in SA Schools Adventure Racing for JSSA Warrior

Heinrich Carstens, a grade 10 pupil at  Noordheuwel Hoërskool was part of a four-person team that recently came third at the SA Schools Adventure Racing Championships. The race was a gruelling event in the beautiful but mountainous Magoebaskloof area involving a total of 60km cycling and 20km running, rafting, pushcarts and orienteering. The day of the event dawned minus the warm weather that the Lowveld is known for. It was rainy, misty and icy cold and tough muddy conditions tested participants both physically and mentally.

“Completing the race was one of the hardest things I have ever done”, said Heinrich “my warrior training at JSSA paid off, giving me the physical fitness and mental strength to endure and finish the race”.


JSSA Self Defense Boot Camp

On 4 October JSSA hosted another self-defense boot camp. “Changing your mind-set from defensive to offensive defense and understanding how to use your attacker’s energy against him is crucial in a self-defense situation” says Pierre Assor, owner of JSSA.

South Africans live in a violent society where cultivating the skills to defend yourself in a dangerous situation is an essential life skill. JSSA aims to teach clients basic hand to hand combat skills to empower them in an attack situation.

Self defense boot camps are held every first Saturday of the month.
