Good class tonight at www.essexfightingarts.co.uk and a sad goodbye to the martial arts class that goes before us as they are no longer teaching. :-( Wish you all well and hope to see you all again soon. Welcome to Tom, another Tom that we have now on his first lesson today. As always, the first class is tough as there's so much to take in but he did great and learned a fair amount. Seemed to enjoy himself also which is so important and also hats off to John as I was listening and watching him teach Tom on the pads and did a first rate job! Teaching is another skill altogether which Ken so rightly said this evening. So to see that made me very proud as a Sensei. Good to get back to basics with the three point entries and moving through dakup take downs and then on to one for one hubud with switches/arm breaks. Have a great weekend and see you all next week. 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! 😉
