May 4th Seminar

It was a fantastic seminar with Royce Gracie the UFC cage fighter on Sunday 4th May. A total of 54 people were on the mat with people from as far away as Scotland and Milton Keynes attending, it was great to see old friends and new such as the Tims Matlock crew, the Caged steel lads, Ross Pettifer, Linton Charters and many more.

A special thanks is owed to Kerry Bottom and Debbie Walsh who quickly organised the mornings turnout with calmness and ease. Royce was especially pleased with the calibre of the students and said that the technical level and techniques were very high.

Congratulations on attaining your well deserved blue belts to the following after a long hard effort (please note some of these students are black belts in other martial arts) :-)

  • Steve Lee, Matthew McNaghten, Steve Holmes, Big Mark Ellis and Linton Charters.
Congratulations who achieved degrees on their current belt;
  • James Harding (2 degrees), Harry Jenkinson and Tim (1 degree on his brown belt)

If I have missed anyone off please e mail so we can add them to the site. It was a great day and thank you to all those who attended and helped arrange it including Mark Headleand and my wife Lyn.
