Thursday saw the third instalment of the ground work syllabus that is being worked through over the last few weeks. Focus for this week was arm locks, or rather as the literal translation would call it, dislocations. Later in the evening sensei John dug deep in his treasure trove of secret moved and found a leg lock called ashi garami (I think?) Grats to Mel for being the only one to pull it off!

As is tradition of late we finished with some randori, exhausting but great fun as always. For the record, I did NOT cheat and wasn’t the one to introduce the wall as a third participant but I’ll admit to making use of it afterwards!

If you can’t make Thursday’s and are feeling a bit left out there’s a rumour going around that we might do some more groundwork on Monday….

    So I take it I’m not the only one to have woken up with several bruises and very sore arms!?

    Another excellent session… Mel has set the bar last night pretty high… can anyone rise to the challenge???

    Hope to have a few photos on Flickr this weekend once I have some time…. and the first instalment of the syllabus is coming soon!

    I was totally shattered at the end of that session ….

    Eating too soon before class is never a good idea….

    Not tapping out when you are close to being choked out is also not a good idea ….

    Never the less it was an excellent session and hopefully the techniques will transition into the jujitsu work on mondays and also the syllabus I intend to concentrate on ..

    Great class

    See you all next week
