I would like to congratulate our Student Of The Month for March, Baily O’reily. He has shown great commitment to his training, really got stuck this month, and passed his first grading. Well done and I can’t wait to see you pass even more gradings in the future.
This month as been awesome for the Aldenham dojo. During the month we have had the Juniors’ gradings, presentations and our fun and games lessons. We have also been going over loads of grappling work, in preparation for the National Championships. I know that everyone is looking forward to taking part. I can’t wait to watch the Aldenham club come away with all the gold medals!
So this month, the gradings have taken place. I am happy to say that everyone who took part, passed. We started off the grading day with the line-up and breakfalls. We then moved on to the grading techniques. The Juniors were awesome! They performed various different takedowns and chokes. We then moved on to the grappling and fitness side of the grading.
It was great to see the class so determined to pass. Well done everyone. As this was the first grading which has taken place at Aldenham dojo I am very pleased to say it went well. You have defiantly set the standard for future gradings.
Next month we are going to be concentrating on our stand up grappling, in preparation for the competition which is only round the corner.
I would just like to remind everyone that the classes are still carrying on through the Easter Holidays. And also a reminder about the National Championships which will be taking place on the 17th May 2015. Hope to see you all there.
