Personal training for Tom Daly this evening again at www.essexfightingarts.co.uk but good to finely tune things with young Thomas... :-) Pushed him on the pads this evening and had him puffing a bit but he coped well and gave his all which was all I expected. We then went on to some single stick Sambrada 10 x count which can take a while to teach and then Dikit knife drills 1-3 with some free flow knife play near the end. It's a great way to speed up your reactions/decisions during knife play and with no set pattern it's all down to muscle memory from various feeds, blocks, strikes and strips. Did great in everything though so well done Tom. The rest of you ugly lot I will see on Thursday ;-) 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! 😉
