A massive congratulations to BKO’s Craig Ashford, Michael Skeat’s and Stu Rosier who braved the wilds of Pippingford Park in West Sussex on Saturday 8th November 2013 to complete the Spartan Race Beast.

The Spartan Race Beast is the grand finale of the obstacle racing season attracting competitors from all over the UK and Europe and comprises a 11+ mile muddy trek through countryside tracks, up hills, through lakes, mud holes and several obstacles such as monkey bars, the ice pit, fire jump, Hercules lift and a 20m rope climb before being battered with pugil sticks while crossing the finishing line.

Despite the added challenge of torrential rain and an average temperature of 9 degrees made worse by a biting southern wind, the lads got round the course in just over 4 and a half hours each. There was even some time on the way round to bust out some dance moves and throw in a couple of spin kicks. If BKO had been around in 400BC, I don’t think the Persians would have stood a chance!

There are more obstacle races coming up in 2014 such as Tough Mudder and more Spartan Races in which BKO members will be taking part in. If you fancy a challenge in 2014, keep checking the website where we will post further details as and when.

Spartans we salute you…  AROO, AROO, AROO!!!





Congratulations to all the red bels who succesfully gained their grading on Saturday. After completing the six week beginner course, each student had to demonstrate their basic techniques, combinations, defensive blocks and perform  2 minutes on the bag showing good form, speed and power. The standard was high and maximum effort was needed to come through. Well done everyone!

These students can now attend any of the other classes. In addition we are now looking to create a dedicated Yellow belt class for any red belts. Keep looking on here for more information over the next week.

Starting 11 November we have the brown and black belt course.

A 6 week course running on Mondays 8-9pm and concentrating on working techniques and disciplines related to the higher levels and culminating in a grading.

Although this course is for higher levels anyone can attend regardless of experience or grade, but the focus will be on advanced level work.

Look farward to seeing you there.
