I would like to congratulate our Student of the Month for May, Thomas Ashby. He has shown great commitment to his training and has really got stuck into this month. Well done and keep up the good work. Also I would like to say a huge well done to everyone who entered the national championships. You all did really well and I’m extremely proud of you all. I would like to say well done to Barney and Toby Cunrow and Tye and Reece Simpson who entered competition. Well done to you all. It takes a lot to get up there and fight.
This month as been an awesome month for the Aldenham dojo. During the month we have had the national championships. The students have been building up to this for months and finally the day had come to show everyone what they are made of in class we had been going over and over our grappling work to try and increase the children’s skills. They have all been working hard for this. We have also been going over the basics in preparation for the infants first grading. I think they you will all be great.
The infants have been working towards the championships. They have been going over ground holds and throws. Alex Rees has been training extremely hard for this. Every lesson he has been going over hip throws and hold downs. I can’t wait to see you compete at the end of the month!! The juniors have also been training for the championships. They have been focusing on their chokes and throws. This is so they can take their opponent down quickly and get them to submit quickly. I think they are doing really well and everyone which is competing will do fantastic. Teenagers have been preparing for their next gradings. Not only are they learning their syllabus they are practicing fitness and their throws, which are coming along really well. Their gradings will be in July and I think their grading will be brilliant.
We are looking forward to the up and coming grading, which are fast approaching. I can’t wait to see you all grade to your next grade.
