18 Letchworth Drive
Trained at his school for about 10 months.l found that he was arrogant and always turned up late.And when he did turn up all he use to do was slide off to the cupboard at the back of the room with Si Mei Della Sullivan giggling.I heard she saw through his fake claims of being a master and being trained by a certain person,and when she left he apparently threatened to beat her up.But now l hear she has received the correct training(instead of the 1 year bullshit and now your a teacher Julian serves up)and now is a teacher to be respected.All Julian Hitch school of Excellence will do is suck you in,try to brainwash you,then you bleed you dry.The only reason he is a Master is because he made himself one.

Just stumbled across poor reviews and I'm shocked and in disbelief . I attended Julian's school when he was younger and found classes good and in form and correct sessions . I am no dummy as I also trained under Victor Khan in London who trained with Bruce lee under the main man !! . Julian seemed like a nice chap too and yes when I was moving out of the area I believe he was starting military classes close combat .

My experience of attending this school is that it does not do 'what it says on the tin'. Students had to pay extortionate fees (over £100 per course, lasting only a few hours) to learn simple techniques that should have been taught in normal classes, including weapons defence and defence against multiple assailants). Many students have complained about this and he has even acknowledged it in his blog, although his response was along the lines of 'tough luck'. I also found that despite paying for classes given by JH, the vast majority of the time he turned up late (without apologising or providing excuses) or not at all. That is disgraceful and shows no respect to his students. Also, there was no realistic sparring, it was simply a matter of chest pad punching, which was totally unrealistic. I found this teacher to be nothing more than a egomaniacal/narcissistic PR man who would lie or embellish the truth when it suited him.

Russell Berry, What you read on this page can only be considered 'libellous' when proven false, beyond all reasonable doubt, and thus far you have not achieved that. Claiming that he is not always popular simply because he "stands firm on the CWT rules and principles" is preposterous and the fact that you have swept aside negative comments about the school in a single line may say much for it's culture. Where is this "written and photographic proof"? You claim that your teaching is "realistic", yet the word doesn't even appear on the website in this regard. Indeed, according to one review the word "realistic" was removed after a complaint about teaching methods solely involving pad punching. Tell us, is the average student still only allowed to learn and practice in this way? Or are they now allowed to actually engage in actual bouts to put what they have 'learnt' into practice? Simply writing that so many students have defended themselves using these techniques is totally unverifiable, and you know it. Given what people already know/feel about this school, it's unsurprising that many disbelieve these bombastic statements. Also, I find it ludicrous that you claim specialist commandos blew their cover to all who were present at those 'record breaking events' seemingly to give JH another self-promoting photo opportunity. Raising money for charity (and then boasting about it as often as possible) is a marketing gimmick that has been used by companies for many years to promote their supposed 'ethical practices' and 'committment to the community', which, in turn, is a form of sinuous self-promotion/advertising. I simply don't accept (and many others may agree), have had such a poor experience at the school, that JH undertakes these actions out of the goodness of his heart. It's also odd that you alone in the vast majority of reviews I have read about this school claim that the school offers "high quality teaching and value for money". Neither grading expenses, nor the cost of specialist classes (e.g. defence against multiple assailants) were ever explained to me during the "personal introduction or free trial". Judging by the fact that JH even commented on student's complaints about fees for specialist classes, some would say that this was verging on false advertising. The only 'members pack' I received was a 'free' JH VHS and t-shirt (both of which JH arrogantly asked to be returned upon leaving). Consumer credit agreements WERE used and I still have mine as evidence.
