Gemma is the head of administration at Saru Ju Jitsu Academy. She organises all gradings, interclub competitions and kids camps. Gemma is an orange belt in traditional Ju-Jitsu but decided the mats weren't for her - she does jump in occasionally though! She can be found behind the desk drinking tea and generally being the brains behind the business!
