Bushey Monday & Friday (Adults) Jiu Jitsu Club
Monthly Report
November 2016

Class in grappling mode

What an amazing month this has been for the adult class in Bushey I would like to welcome to the class some new students to the Monday and Friday class. Moved up from the teenager class, Isaac Bitelli, Gabriel Van Wyk, James Tatman, Tosin Oparinde, Callum Sugrue and Harshul Jolly. They have all moved up together and have been working with each other in the teenager class for some time now.

It is amazing to see the young students growing up and moving forward with their Jiu Jitsu. I have been teaching most of them from about 10 years old and now they are taller than me and in my adult class amazing to see.

This month we have been getting our self’s ready for the end of year grading. As this is a new class all the adult students will be going for the adult white belt. Moving up from the red belt, the class will travel up to Norfolk to the Honbu dojo where Soke Kevin Pell will undertake the grading. I am looking forward to the adults to meet Soke Kevin Pell and also to take part in their first grading.

All of the class has been working on ground work and also the basic hip throw this month getting to grips on throwing each other more and hitting the floor loads of times. “ You can never hit the floor enough”

To finish each lesson off we work together on fitness and grappling working on our basic ground work putting that into practice with grappling from kneeling.

The class is growing so well and everyone is getting on amazing it is lovely to see, keep it up everyone and I look forward to seeing you all at the end of the year with your new white belts.
