Smokin’ Atoms

…is not the name of a pop band but a group of quality streetfighters that passed their grading today. A big group was put their paces and everyone did very well. Three new White II’s, two new Yellow I’s and eight fighters upgraded through the new syllabus stuff. Atom, smoke and spider worked through all the street situations. The new grading format was hot and sweaty with continuous sparring all the way through. Marcin was the pick of his group, although I saw improvement across the board and some choice performances. Cogratulations to you all! Photos to follow…

Grading in Full Flow

Hard and sweaty class as everyone worked through their grading stuff. Always difficult to keep focused and stay on point when you are tired and your mind starts to drift. All about staying in gear and having the mental discipline to keep going. Lots of improvement but still polishing to be done. Keep working hard…5 days to go!

Tuesday Starts Earlier

Good news! From next week onwards (17th March) our Tuesday class will be starting at the slightly earlier time of 7.45pm. The class will still be 1.5 hours, finishing at 9.15pm, but if you wish to do some free practise afterwards, the studio will be free. Early bird catches the worm!
