Kia Ora Auckland!
February was highly eventful and we are incredibly happy with how this year is shaping up. The overall progress we are witnessing in both our adult and Little Warrior students is phenomenal… If you didn’t see our last post and you want to get up to speed with some of our other developments, you can click here! 🙂 Aside from a free beginners course, we’ve got A LOT to talk about today…
Upcoming events: Charity Roll, No-Gi Nationals. 📅
As we head into March, the team have began to knuckle down for the No-Gi Nationals which are taking place on April 7th. Whether or not you are participating, we can safely say that everyone has been taking an active part in helping those wanting to test themselves in a competitive environment! (We know this is the first time for some you, so congrats). Remember… Win or lose, it’s supposed to be a fun day and more importantly, it’s a killer learning experience!
Super important note. we’re now one week away from our next charity roll, raising funds for the children’s charity Variety. We appreciate anyone who can make it here to raise money for this awesome cause… Please donate and we will be sure to report back and let you know how the day goes!
Now we are pleased to announce a new and exciting addition to the Bucklands Beach BJJ & MMA curriculum. It’s something a little different but we are currently preparing for the addition of morning yoga classes! Again, we are going to update you very soon with more details as a number of students have expressed interest in these lessons. It’s a well known fact that Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and yoga can really compliment each other considering the dynamic and unorthodox nature of both sports/activities; so we’re excited to be able to provide you the opportunity to experience this for yourself.
Know somebody who wants to start training but they’ve been reluctant to come? Find out why now is the right time.
For March only, we will be teaching beginners BJJ classes for FREE to new and prospective students—there is huge interest in this and we only have a few more spaces remaining for these classes so if you want to take part—you should contact us today. This absolute beginners course will cover the basic moves, positions and will act as an awesome stress-free induction into our main classes. You can leave any insecurities behind and step into the class knowing what to expect, but also that nothing is expected of you (aside from a willingness to learn). You should feel comfortable asking any questions you have, no matter how insignificant you feel they are! We were all beginners once. The classes kick off on March 12th.
One final note. 🥋
So for a while now we’ve been selling gis to our students from one of our favourite local brands – Respect. Now we said we were going to do something else as well. It wasn’t easy but we’ve managed to source and design our own signature Bucklands Beach BJJ & MMA club gis! They are going to become available SOON (alongside our current range) and we couldn’t be happier with them. The reason this took a while is that we wanted to find a manufacturer we trusted, who could create a gi which we could feel comfortable in, which we would compete in and which we could use again and again over an extended duration of time. Well, we’ve made it so check out the photos! If this is of interest to you, stay posted because we are very excited to try this out.
