Better late than never again, sorry it's taken me a couple of days to get this update. Awesome class at www.essexfightingarts.weebly.com on Thursday. Still not back into the pads yet but we will. And a very big welcome to Jack who came along and was a natural. Never thrown a punch or performed a technique and he was flowing nicely after ten minutes!! He'll do great and is a sponge! :-) Went through the last panantukan techniques involving Gaja and then went onto knife drills with orthodox vs icepick picking up the attacking number 1 slash, into a kidney stab which is blocked, upward slash to the wrist and 12 o'clock stab back which is stopped and then break the grip to start again. This blends into strip for strip but we need to get the first section off first. See you all 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! 😉
