We finally made the paper!!!
Took 3 months to get in, but we must be grateful that we receive the coverage. Well done Nicolle for winning the Irish open.

We run 12 classes a week have 150 members with 60 competing in 30 tournaments a year including many internationals, win loads of  big championships, British, European, Dublin etc. Have  loads seminars a year with top proponents of the sport. Have several members representing Britain in the WAKO squad, perform at fetes and charities,  I think we deserve more coverage from the local paper? We will keep informing them of our many activities and hope they will realise what we do? :)

Last of the bungee class last night saw a few who couldn't make it but a great fun atmosphere and hard work. Killing the timings now, lots of sweat and a little bit of being sick. :)
Next one starts in a few weeks  so don't let it all go in between times.

BUNGEE CLASS

 

 

What a great evening we had with Jadi Tention. This is the third time he has come to BKO and taught. 

We warmed up with the jumping jack buffet! and knee raises for 5 mins plus other exercises, then into learning the footwork and set up drills. Following this Jadi produced some x ray film! that we held as focus pads and  practiced blitzing through. 

We then all sparred, Including Jad to the end of the 3.5 hour seminar

A great night and entertaining night with a brilliant exponent of his art and an excellent teacher.

Look forward to doing it again next year!

"Great night at Jadi seminar last night. He's energetic, full of charisma and made everyone of all abilities feel great. I especially liked his speech at the end about making yourself uncomfortable, I definitely need to do that." ??
