Firstly I would just like to say congratulations to Joseph Moss who is Student of the Month for June 2015. Well done you have earned this award.
The students at Lockers Park have been training for their gradings, and the classes have been focusing on their ground holds and how to move from different positions on the floor and keep your opponent held down. All the classes have been doing really well with this and they have mastered their techniques.
Also they have been concentrating on throws and locks, meaning that have to throw their partner and take them to the floor and lock them up to get the tap. We have also kept up our grappling training as we want to have the edge when it comes to the next grappling competition.
The gradings were awesome at Lockers Park. Every class performed to the best of their ability and they were all determined not to give up. I would like to say well done to everyone who took part in the gradings and to all of those that have moved up to their next grade.
As it is summer time again, it only means one thing: Manor Lodge School fete is on and this year Ishin Ryu Ju Jitsu has been asked to put on a demonstration. It was a wonderful day I would like to thank Nicky Astell for inviting us to be a part of it. I would like to say well done to all the students that took part in the display. It was brilliant and you all did yourself proud.
Lastly, it’s that time of year again where the sun is shining and we have to say goodbye to some of our students. I would like to say well done to all the Year 8’s with your exam results and getting into the secondary schools that you wanted. It’s an amazing achievement. I would also like to say well done 4years in Ju Jitsu is a long time to stick at a hobby and you have all been exceptional students to teach. I hope that the future is bright for you all, and that we see you again soon. Good luck and you will be sorely missed.
I hope you all have a fantastic Summer Holiday and I can’t wait to see you all back in September in your new belts ready to learn even more.
