Our skate party is getting closer

We are on for Saturday the 26th at Skateland.  Time: 4:30pm to 6:30pm.

I highly recommend that if you and/or your child has never been skating before to purchase the set of pads available at the skating rink.  Beginners will fall down! Wearing the pads will make learning for the first time a much more pleasant experience.

Tuesday training King and Queen of the mat

Tuesday our Junior's worked on learning the break fall to the side.  We also worked on moving sideways with lapel and sleeve grips.  Lateral movement straddling a line with good posture.  Everyone enjoyed the drill a lot.  We will progress into a take down very soon.

Our Seniors brushed up on the standing guard pass.  We went over the basics after a while drilling.  We up the game with a King and Queen of the mat session. The girls were exceptionally awesome at passing the guard using this technique.  I'm very proud to have such quick learners in our school.

Saturday on the mats

We had to intense classes today.  We are ramping up our fitness regime to make everyone stronger and increase stamina.  Today we did our push ups to a song which was tough and fun at the same time.  
Our technique for the Juniors today was the 3rd mount escape.  This one challenge some as their hip escape movement has to be strong and correct.  Everyone did a great job work the new escape.  We tested all the mount escape with a controlled king of the mat challenge.

Our Seniors worked on Spider Sweep.  It's coming together nicely for everyone.  Our next step is to introduce the triangle from the spider setup.  I thoroughly enjoy watching our students get more technical with their Jiu Jitsu.

Training hard on a Saturday morning

The comp kids!
We had 2 fantastic classes on Saturday morning.  Everyone was super focused which allowed our students to have a very productive class.

We are counting down to the competition in September.  Our training camp is exclusively for those that want to compete.  Students that aren't competing are welcome to stay and watch the matches.  We will open the rolling session to all students after the competition.

I was impressed with all the competitors that rolled in the camp. It's time to make it real so everyone is ready for the level they will encounter at the comp.
