I would like to congratulate our Students Of The Month; Ella Steel and Charlie Barry. They have both shown great commitment to their training and have really got stuck into their techniques this month. Well done and keep up the good work. Also I would like to say a huge well done to Dora and Tooni from the Teenager class who have been training with Ishin Ryu Ju Jitsu for 6 years and have been awarded the six year award. It’s a huge achievement and you should both be proud.
This month as been an awesome month for the Borehamwood Dojo. During the month we have had the Infants and 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.
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 infants started with defence against ground hold and Body Drops. I am happy to say the whole class was amazing and I couldn’t find a fault with any of them. The Juniors were just as good. 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 the grading. Well done everyone.
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 know that everyone is looking forward to it and I can’t wait to see you all there
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.
