SUMMER CAMP FINAL DAY

Friday saw the final day of the summer camp.  15 hours of training, games and sparring. Some of the kids also came to the evening classes and turned up for Saturday class as well. This meant a total of 22 hours training this week for kids like George, Princeley and Bob. Almost 6 months worth in one week.
We were all a bit tired after the final class on Saturday, but the level of skill and sparring has certainly risen to the kids who attended the course and there is a greater cohesion in the class. We also had some beginners who trained all week. Welcome to you. Some children were eligible for their gradings. Well done Luke. Daisy, Freya  for geting their red belt and to Alex for getting his yellow. 

The week has seen loads of different training disciplines such as Bungees, Plyo boxes, Parralettes, Ladders, Focus pads, Punch bags, Foam batons etc. Lots of basic techniques and defences plus of course plenty of sparring. Oh! and Nerf wars!!

This has been the perfect set up for the up and coming tournament season and has also given a boost to theose who will be grading in September and December.

A great week for the club. The next camp will be a  small one at half term and then at Christmas

Time for a rest now.

BKO summer camp day 2

Today was all about circuits and sparring.  After some team games and warm up  We began with a blitzing circuit of one minute rounds, then a punch strengthening circuit  of the same. We followed with lots of sparring, tag team and individual analysis of each fighter. Finally there was more Nerf wars mayhem and we all crashed after.

Kids summer camp

Today saw the start of the summer camp.
We began with some Dodgeball and team games and exercises. Then after a stretch we worked on some basics and split into different groups. Advanced class worked using the boxes, bungees, leg weights and Paralettes to develop power and speed. The inters were working on avoidance and counters and the beginners worked through the red belt grading.
We the did some sparring and tag team finally finishing off with a mad nerf wars game. A great start to the week.

 Well doe all.

Club refurbishment

Now that we have the use of the room 24/7 we have been decorating and re designing the club layout to maximise the space and make a better place to train in. 
Thanks to all the volunteers we have re painted all the walls and filled in the holes etc.  Painted the floor.Cleaned all the mats, removed the old cipboard and replaced with pigeon holes and a new bag space.

Added a mesh wall for kit bags, refurbished all the toilets and painted a logo on the wall.
The result is  a fresher and more spacious gym with all the equipment in place and organised. It will get it's first outing at the kids summer camp on Monday 24th August and we are all looking forward to it.

 

Thanks to Kat, Mitch, Jenn, Bob, George, Harry, Dave, Gabor, Rob, Paige, AJ, and everyone else who made this possible.
