Another hectic few winter months, we thought we’d kick off with the results for the Regional Gi Championships.
Win or lose, everyone did amazingly and we finished 5th overall. We want to stress how this is such a massive achievement for us, after all we’ve not even been open for two years!
Leading from the front, assistant instructor Ryan took gold in the Purple Belt division at just 17 in his first competition as a purple belt! You can watch his fight by clicking this link.
Over the next few days the team will be hitting the submission only no-gi competition in Hamilton. This format usually provides dynamic fights and a fascinating learning experience for everyone involved. As always, go and do your best but more importantly, remember to have fun!
New developments ahead?
Over the coming months, we’ll be creating a diary, to recount some of the amazing training experiences our students have taken at the club. We hope this will provide an insight into life on the mats, and the intricacies and benefits that have our students have seen during their time here. Keep your eyes peeled for this soon, it’s a first for us!
Lastly, as of the 8th of July, we’re proud to announce we’re plastic free… We no longer allow single use water bottles in light of recent moves to protect the environment. It’s just a small change and there’s always more that can be done, but we believe the advantages of this will outweigh any negatives. So please, going forward, remember to bring reusable bottles!
