Great to see everyone back at training, Hard to believe we are into February already but we are.
First tournament of the year the Midlands championships saw some great performances from Bhav, Fernando and Darren with Darren winning his division and Fernando getting a silver in his first continuous competition.
Great as well to see new faces at the club with the arrival of new beginners trying out trial sessions. Facebook Ads seem to be working along with new members existing students have bought along. Always good to have new members as it keeps the club fresh and looks to push us all to new highs.
From next week I will be putting an extra hour on and splitting the group into lower and higher grades now numbers have improved. It will be run the same format as Wednesday at Light Hall. Higher grades are welcome to do extra training in these sessions as well as your own grade sessions.
This will tie in nicely with the forthcoming black belt grading as quality training is essential for those grading.
Details of the English Championships next month in Worcester are posted on the tournament page and a number of black belts will be attending the unpires courses. Lots to play for.
Onwards and upwards
