Quiet class tonight at Essex Fighting Arts with a few not being able to make it so hope to see you all soon. Welcome to Malcolm as this evening was his first try training with us and did great, still got some of the skills he acquired when taking part in Karate years ago. As always everything feels like you have two left feet etc, but will build with time. Got to experience some padwork with combinations etc... Also single stick which again is not something people automatically pick up but eventually you'll be using the knife or stick as an extension of your own arm. Touched on some fun groundwork (Dumog) too with straight armbars and various transitions from lock to lock. Have a great weekend everyone and see you next Tuesday, Ouss!

Welcome to the Essex Fighting Arts Blog. I always try to give an overview for each class with a re-cap of what was taught, terminology & ethos behind the techniques used. As well as any introductions, announcements or fun things that happened during the session. Enjoy! 😉
