  • Friday!

    Sometimes, just saying it’s Friday is the only great thing you need. Have a fantastic weekend everyone and we’ll see you next week!

  • Fall

    Today marks the first day of fall / autumnal equinox. If you haven’t already, time to dust off the jackets and keep those rain boots handy. We continue to train just like any other day, that’s the great thing about martial arts being a year-round sport!

    Kids and teens are preparing for testing next week. Getting those last few practice sessions in before putting on the line. Should be an awesome test.

    Adults CAMBO class is working some competition training this week. Even if you’re not competing it’s a fantastic way to push yourself and add some new elements to your grappling game. Keep training hard, the gains are the reward.

  • Summers End

    Looks like this is the end of summer. Officially summer ends this Wednesday September 22. It seemed to go by so fast this year! Hopefully, you got the chance to enjoy it as we head into the rainy months and colder weather returns.

    Testing for children and teens will be on Friday Oct. 1. A flyer will be going home this week with more information for those that are ready. Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Adults CAMBO class; going to be working a full throw to sub sequence this week. This should meld some of the techniques we’ve been working for the last week into a cohesive whole. It’s great to see all the isolated training grow in to a full fledge game plan.

    Let’s get training!

  • Rainy Days

    Welcome to Friday and welcome back the rain! Heavy rain and high winds are expected this Friday and into the weekend. Drive safe everyone, flooding is expected to be a problem. Hopefully, it won’t stop you from enjoying class. We’ll see you tonight and if not have a fabulous weekend!

  • Mid-Month

    Just hit the mid-way point for this month. A lot of things coming up next month, so we are going to be busy, busy, busy! In Oct. we have belt testing for children and teens. At the end of the month is Halloween and we’re hoping to able to do some kind of party this year. Not sure if it will be our normal epic party yet but keep hoping. Adults were hoping for some competitions to be started up, but those are still to be determined. Oct. is also the school’s anniversary. I’ll talk more about that later, but even Google recognizes we’ve been around a long time! – I guess anything over 20 years they just add a plus and not the years – lol

    Enough on what’s coming, let’s focus on today. Keep training hard everyone, it makes life better.
