Chris came down to give us a competition sparring seminar this week.
We ran through loads of sparring drills and strategies and some new ones. Using the rear leg to change space and distance. Both kids and adults had a great time and the session was invaluable for developing or fighters. Lots of sparring followed and set us up for the GB grand slam the next day.
We were asked to do a demontration at Basingstoke Flip out Trampoline centre where they had a night dedicated to raising funds for Children in need. We had a good squad of people who turned up to sho padwork, defences and sparring. The space was quite small, but everyone gave their best and after both demonstrations were through people could use the facilities while a band were playing. Well done everyone.
This week we had our kids Halloween party on Tuesday.
Everyone came in fancy dress and there were lots of games and fun as well as a little training. Coffin races, zombie fighting, Duels, facepainting, sweets and fruit.
Everyone had a great time and were exhausted by the end of the spooky event.
Lewis came down and gave the kids and adults a lesson in the basics of tricking. That's perfoming acrobatic kicks and stunts seen in most action and martial arts films.
Moves such as Butterfly kicks and tournado kicks were practiced and everyone got the hang of them pretty quickly.
The kids finished off with cartwheels to round off into kicks and the adult class kept going for an extra half hour.
Everyone loved it and can't wait for the next workshop, which should be in January.
