This month has been an action packed month for the students, even with the summer holidays coming to an end, the students have been working super hard. It shows in their training with the classes filling up we can focus a lot more on the basic moves and perfecting them. With the infant class we have been going over a lot of moving around on the ground, pulling and pushing are partners getting them to the floor and holding them down. All the students are really enjoying this, and getting to work with each over makes it so much fun. I know everyone is enjoying the grappling and everyone wants to grapple with Charlie Bignell as he is really good at holding people down and moving around on the ground.
I would like to say again a big well done to Scottie Turner on becoming this month’s student of the month Scottie has not missed a lesson and he has been working so very hard well done Scottie keep it up.
With all the students really enjoying the grappling we put the grappling in to some games we played super sumo, stuck in the mud and also bull dog. All the games had grappling involved trying to hold their partner down pull them to the floor or even just going over some of the hold downs they have learned.
The junior class have been working a lot more on self-defence and throwing with the class really getting stuck in. With loads of different attacks from a grab from behind, in front and even someone strangling them. This is more advanced work for the students but this class works so hard and can be pushed a lot more, and have loads of fun. Loan Henry and Janarth Premabala getting stuck in to the front strangles and showing some fast defences and amazing strike. With all the hard work the students have been putting in we put all their work in to action with games with some stand up bull dog and super sumo all the kids found out how easy it is to take someone down when they are moving to you and grabbing you. To finish all the month we done a lot of fitness and different exercise working on different parts on the body mainly legs and arms, and to do this we played a game I use to love this as a kid, it was called “tug of war” this uses your legs and arms to pull your partner away from their finish line.
To finish this month off I would like to say a big well done to Thesanya W-Perera on becoming this month’s student of the month she has not missed a lesson is always willing to learn and help over students out all the time well done and keep up the good work.
