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.

This Saturday we have Lewis coming down to show us how!

Andrew will represent GB for the first time in the +41 yrs men's section of the WAKO world Championships in Turkey in November.
Also competing in the junior championships for the first time is junior instructor Paige Adcock. Paige has been winning many tournaments this year and is looking for a good performance and a podium spot.

Another BKO instructor Liz Ferioli and regular GB team member will be taking on the daunting task of competing in the Points fighting world championships in Turkey and then travelling to take part in the Light continuous world championships in Slovenia. This is an excellent comeback for her after giving birth earlier on this year and she stands a good chance of a medal in both categories.
Team Wessex (George, Brandon, Callum and Cat) ran an afternoon of 50 - 2 minute rounds of sparring. Both points and light con. It was a great success with some top fighters in attendance. 44 fighters took part in total with many BKO members. Everyone had a great time and took away some Valuable sparring experience.
