I would like to say a big well done to Oscar Rzasa for becoming student of the month for May. I know he has been trying so hard with training and when it comes to doing anything he always puts his hand up and is so keen to learn. Keep up the good work Oscar.

With the grappling championships this month I would like to say a big well done to Charlie Bignell who came away from the championships with silver medal again t like last year – he did so well. Also I would like to say a big well done to Elliott Grivelet and Oscar Rzasa who did really well at their first ever championships – well done boys gold medals next year. This month the class have been training none stop on their grappling skills and take downs for the championships and they put it all in to practice and I am so proud of them all because all the students that had taken part did so well all the Juniors that had taken part this was their first time entering and they all did so well.

I have to say the students have been working really well not just with the grappling for the championships but with their self-defence work. With the championships over and done we then moved on with some different ways to throw someone down – not from grabbing but someone throwing a punch or even a kick. The kids have been loving the punching and kicking, learning how to stop a punch and a kick and it also helps them with their hand eye coordination. We have also been training hard on arm locks and shoulder locks putting them in to throws and take downs. It is good to see some new members in the dojo as well I would like to say a big hello and welcome to Eloise Habbijam and Liam Roux.

We have been going over the rules and how to enter and exit the mats and everyone has taken what they learned from the championships. I know Jessica Garvin and Ethan Esteban learned a lot and take all the skills and use it on the mat and help the over students as well.

Student of the month for May in the junior class is Mia Langston. She is a hard worker and I know that she is really enjoying her training and doesn’t mind getting stuck in with the boys and is so keen to learn, she never gives up and is always training hard each week. Well done Mia keep up the good work and keep training hard.
