Christmas Dates for your Diary.

TUESDAYS: the Tuesday class will not be on the 3rd week of December as usual (19/12/17) and will be closed for boxing day too (26/12/17), but will reconvene on the first Tuesday in January (02/01/18).

FRIDAYS: Apart from this coming Friday (01/12/17) as stated below, lessons will run continuously through December, as long as we can get the numbers, because they fall on days that aren’t really affected by the holidays as far as I’m aware, but please message me as usual if you cannot attend for any reason.


Tuesday’s Lesson (28/11/17).

As we haven’t had a class on a Tuesday for 2 weeks, This week we will be doing reflex development drills for the first lesson, going over the same skills again, getting up on our toes and moving around for punch defences, and practising our trap and roll escape in a reflex development cycle, to really get to grips with it. This will be new to some students, but a nice refresher for others.

PUNCH DEFENCES

Slice 1: Jab, Parry / Cross, Parry.

Slice 2: Head movement, additional Jab, Cross.

Slice 3: Additional Job, Cross and returned Jab, Cross.

TRAP AND ROLL ESCAPE

Slice 1: Standard Variation

Slice 2: Punch Block Variation

Slice 3: Headlock Variation

Slice 4: Open Guard Pass


No Friday Lesson (01/12/17).

We will be closed on Friday 01/12/17 due to the Christmas Fayre being on in the village, firstly because there is no way I will get through the village with the trailer as the roads are closed and it will be packed full of people and secondly because we want to go to it, as we always do every year, so if you fancy popping down instead, we will see you there (remember to wrap up warm). We will reconvene on Friday 08/12/17.

Grading Lesson 8.

All in all a good grading. All members who qualify have passed most of it, but as we rushed the last slice I will need to see that done without prompting to make sure everyone knows it properly (my fault), we will fit that into a reflex development lesson at some point.


Yellow Grade Certification Ceremony.

I am proud to announce our new Yellow grade students, who have worked very hard to meet all the required grading standards for each lesson so far.

T-shirt update.

Our supplier has been sent an older t-shirt with the correct logo for a colour match, hopefully this will resolve the problem and we will be able to order our new t-shirts very soon, within the next week or so.


Grading Book Recall.

I am still recalling all grading books to make final changes, I have redesigned the last 4 pages and added an additional one in the back with our current and up to date grading information, I will require all grading books back in as soon as possible, I will tag all those who haven’t handed in their book in a Facebook post. I will be returning books the following week.


Tuesday Launch Lesson (07/11/17)

I am very excited to get started with the new Tuesday evening class, with some students returning from the old day time class and some of the newer students swapping over from the friday class, we have already got a good little group going, but we also have some new people interested that should be joining us.

We will be restarting the syllabus as most of the students are very new to the program and it will be unproductive to start from where the old Tuesday daytime class left off.

We have just graded lesson 7, which is the first of the 7, 8 & 9 block of grading lessons. That was a mouthful.

Next Friday’s crucial Reflex Development lesson will be to prepare for the following Lesson 8 Grading. We will make sure that everyone who has met the previous learning and practise requirements for the lesson is ready for grading, but for those who haven’t attended the previous learning, practise and reflex development lessons, this will count as one of those on your learning track.
