WAKO SQUAD TRAINING APRIL

On Sunday we took 10 people to the WAKO GB squad training at Bisham Abbey.

The session ran from 12-4pmand included warm ups, drills and loads of sparring.

With the World championships coming up for kids and the European championships for 

Adults there was all to fight for.

It looks like . Maggie, George, Liz, Kat, Rob and Paige are in the final squad this year

Rossi, Adam, Charlotte and Andy E are knocking onthe door though.

The next squad session is in May and is open to all. We are hoping to bring a lot more people along

as the training is excellent even if you are not in the final team.

Some great fights today and I saw loads of improvement which is the most important thing.  Notable  were Abi. Who after not fighting for 18 months was dealing with kicks really well and jamming her opponents legand countering. Jamie also had some great head kicks in his bouts and Bob was a demon in his first light con. Emily too coming back from a long absence showed her natural ability and was unlucky not to win. Joshie went for everything and showed great improvement. Too many great things to mention. Proud of you all.
Next tournament is Chessington on 22nd.
