The Bushey Adult class have been going from strength to strength this month with the class working a lot on the basic hip throw and palm heel strikes. The ladies have been working so well together and don’t let anything stop them from training.
Each week the girls come up with different self-defence questions for me as there has been a lot of crime in the Bushey and Watford area, so the last 10 minutes of the lesson we go over some of the different questions and ways someone could attack someone and what we can do. But the most impotent thing to remember is your intention you could know all the best moves but unless you are willing to put 100% into that move it will not work.
Both Monday and Friday classes finish off with rounds of light ground work, from trying to escape from someone holding them down or trying to get someone to the floor. The ladies have been enjoying this and try so hard to get me down and make me tap. We have been training so hard and they always put 100% into everything they do.
I have to say that we have an amazing group of students and I am looking forward to seeing some more of our teenagers join us soon and also some new adults from around the Bushey and Watford area.
Next month the adults will be starting to use their first weapon in their belt called the Kubaton. I know that the ladies are excited to be using this as it is the same size as a pen and they can use it for a number of different attacks. So watch out for next month and hopefully I will be in one Pease.
Next month the class will be working on the Kubaton and also looking at some ground strangles, so I am very excited indeed.
