I would like to congratulate our Students Of The Month for March – Jessica Magromallis and George Turner. They have shown great commitment to their training and have really got stuck into their techniques this month. Well done and keep up the good work. I would also like to say a huge well done to Tommy George who has achieved a six year award. Tommy is highly committed to his training and I can’t wait to see him get his twelve year award. Well done Tommy.
This month as been awesome for the Bushey dojo. During that last four weeks we have had the Infant and Juniors’ gradings. We have also been going over loads of grappling work, in preparation for the National Championships. We have many students that want to take part in the Championships again this year. I know we are going to do really well.
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 Infants were ready to rumble! As soon as they walked into the dojo they knew what day it was and they were determined to pass.
They all performed their techniques perfectly, which really impressed me and Sempai Tom. 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 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 Good Friday. And also a reminder about the National Championships which will be taking place on the 17th May 2015. Hope to see you all there.
