Congratulations to Matthew Blackaller and Alfie Turner for remaining students of the month for August 2015, both continue to work hard and so were awarded for the month of August. Keep it up boys you’re doing really well!
The children finished School ready for summer holidays and most were getting ready to go away on their hols… this included the caretaker who went away for a nice summer break, This meant that the Bishops Ju Jitsu school was closed for a few weeks – this did not disturbed the classes too much as we were able to do catch up lessons to make up time that we had lost.
Young Finley Tilly has really settled into classes well, he has lots of confidence and is very keen to come forward to try out new techniques. Even though it was summer holidays Finley was very keen to come to class and perfect his basic techniques. While the class was quiet, Finley worked lots on his basic breakfalls and worked hard on some ground hold techniques.
The junior class work similar to infant classes but were able to advance on some of the techniques due to their age and mental skills. We worked on a figure of four armlock and making it a little bit more exciting by creating a game from it – this would only start once everyone was confident with the technique being practised. During the lessons we also worked on our fitness by performing relay races whereupon they could race against their team members.
I was really happy to see Shaydon Winters return to the Bishops Ju Jitsu classes. Shaydon felt he needed a little break from the class but was super excited to get back to training, as soon as Shaydon started to grapple and get involved with the students he was back into the swing of things. Shaydon got to class as much as possible including the catch up lessons that we had on Fridays.
Linnden Turner from the teenager class also got himself to training during summer break. Linnden has steadily been working towards his next belt, which is orange and giving a little dabble into green. As Linnden is moving forward in the belts we are working harder on his fitness, ready for him to attempt his grading in December.
I hope that you have had a lovely summer break but I look forward to seeing you back at the class ready the training. For a few of you will be advancing to your next school and learning new skills to better yourself in life.
