Heath Parks Joel Jackson has had an outstanding year in Jujitsu. Joel’s recent accolades include:
- Gold medal at the Junior World Championships

His performances have resulted in him being ranked number one in the world for his age category.
Joel is incredibly committed to the discipline of his sport, at times training five times a week. In addition, Joel kindly shares his Jujitsu expertise by coaching some of his peers, helping to improve their skills and fitness to maximise their results at competitions. The fact that he manages to juggle all of this with such a packed training schedule and the demands of being a year 10 student makes this all the more impressive.
