This month, at Lockers Park, we have been preparing for gradings and also learning more of our martial arts history. The class have found this extremely interesting and has been learning more and more each lesson. We also had Soke Kevin Pell visit us – it was a brilliant visit and not only was their loads of positive feedback from Soke, the children loved him being there. Thank you Soke, hope to see you back at Lockers Park soon!

This month as been an awesome month for the Lockers Park Ju Jitsu Club. During the month we have had the Juniors’ gradings, presentations and our fun and games lessons. We have also been going over loads of grappling work, in preparation for the National Championships. I know that everyone is looking forward to taking part. I can’t wait to watch the Lockers Park club come away with all the gold medals!

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 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. We was very lucky this month, we welcomed Soke Kevin Pell into our Dojo to watch over the gradings. He was very impressed with the whole class. Well done boys.

Next month we are going to be concentrating on our stand up grappling, in preparation for the competition which is only round the corner.
