It is with great sadness I must inform you that Peter Aldridge, a serving British soldier, died whilst on active duty on Friday 22nd January 2010. He was just 19 years of age.
Peter, son of Andy and Caroline Aldridge, was killed by an improvised explosive device whilst serving his country and was the 250th British soldier to die in Afghanistan.
As a former Small Circle Jujitsu student, Peter began his training with Sensei Colin Harvel and myself as a young boy here in England; he was a great kid and later a fine soldier.
Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.

Small Circle Jujitsu is a precise and practical system that I often taught to my soldiers. What I like most about Small Circle is speed; soldiers in combat situations need to resolve an encounter quickly and Small Circle Jujitsu training fits that need.
