Massive congratulations to all the infants that were presented with their new belts and certificates. It is always a massive event when it comes to the presentations as the parents and other members of the family come along to see their child get presented.
Well done to all the beginners that passed their first ever belt in our style of Ju Jitsu. All the infants did a brilliant grading and showed true determination throughout.
There are only a few weeks to go before we close for the Christmas break, so it is more fun and less work to reward the students for all their hard work over the year. It has also been great year with many new members joining the club.
Awesome grading by all the juniors, who have all worked extremely hard during this year. Great to see new members joining the class, and hopefully it will be the same next year when we return after the Christmas break.
Soke and I were invited to the Martial Arts illustrated Hall of Fame 2015 recently. It was an amazing night for the both of us, as I was presented with an award for all my work and dedication to martial arts over the last 21 years. It was also a great honour and privilege to see my instructor get awarded with a lifetime Achievement award.
Having been teaching children for the last sixteen years, I have been very lucky and honoured to take part in so many amazing trips and courses. Back in 2004 I was involved in a major car crash were I broke my neck. I was told that I would never be able to practise martial arts again, which would have changed my life forever.
If it hadn’t been for my martial art training under my instructor Soke Kevin Pell I would have been paralysed from the neck down or even worse! I can’t thank Soke enough for all the years that I was used as his uke and the personal training that he has given me over the last 21 years.
I look forward to seeing you all at this year Christmas party which is always a massive event to end the year. It is on SUNDAY 20TH DECEMBER from 10.30am to 12.30pm at the THETFORD Leisure Centre, Croxton Road, Thetford, IP24 1JD
You will get the chance to have fun on the BUNGEE RUN, BOUNCY CASTLES, MASSIVE SLIDE, food drinks and of course the chance to meet SANTA, RULDOPH & THE SNOWMAN.
As last year’s summer camp was a sell-out, I can confirm that next year’s summer camp will be from MONDAY 8TH AUGUST TO FRIDAY 12TH AUGUST 2016.
As this will be my last report of the year I would like to take this opportunity to thank all my students and parents for their amazing support throughout the year. Without all the amazing students that I have the honour to teach every week, I would not be in the position I am in today
HAVE A VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS AND A VERY MERRY NEW YEAR TO YOU AND ALL YOUR FAMILY.
Please visit our website www.ishinryu.com as much as possible as I submit reports every month about the students training during the previous month. This is a great opportunity to see if you have been mentioned or appear in a photo.
We also have the new calendar page where you can have a look at upcoming events so you can plan ahead. You can also leave feedback on each of the reports or comment on your son/daughters club and share them to your Facebook pages.
If you have any questions or you are unsure of anything, please catch me at the club where I will be happy to help!
If you are on Facebook, please can you send me and Kevin Pell a friend request so if we need to pass on information quickly I can contact you, and when the reports go up I can share it to your Facebook page so you get it straight away…
