Well done guys, wear your belts with pride, you have earned them and it is now onto the next challenge (Orange and above) for you guys
The academic year 2012/2013 has got off to a great start, with enthusiastic new faces and also the return of the good folks from last year – all fit and healthy and motivated to train hard.
The new venue (Dance Studio) is working out well, with the sprung floor, making landing a ‘softer’ experience and the mirrored wall helping to give a brighter training environment. Oh and the acoustics are much better too.
Looking forward to the next few sessions 🙂
Welcome back everyone.
I hope you’ve all enjoyed the Festive Break and are ready to charge into the new term enthused for jim jitsu.
We’ll be organising a grading in the next few weeks (very very soon) so make sure you have all the theory, names and techniques in your heads. The next 4 session swill be critical to your success or failure in the grading.
!st session back, nice and easy.
movement, blocking, thinking about alternatives, rolling and a little but of rolling. The pace picks up next session – get ready to rock!!!!!
Welcome to the returning members and great to see the Freshers.
The first four session have been an introduction to simple movement in combination with blocking and then simple defence techniques.
This will be taken further over the coming weeks along with more techniques. From this point on we will update the Lesson Plan blog with details of each individual lesson.
Thanks for training with us over the last year.
The club is now in recess until the Freshers Fayre and the New Term in September.
Have a great vacation and we’ll see you in September
