Great class tonight at www.essexfightingarts.co.uk and loads of hard work on the pads. Put Daniel through his paces and is coming along nicely with a good solid guard. Kept a keen eye on Rob also and also coming along great so keep up the good work lads...! Good to get into some Gaja work from jab, cross with mainly dakup and outside entry to maintain continuity. Some nice throws, even with Ken's full blooded hip throw seeing Rob fly through the air. :-D Also some brutal locks including the 'parallel can't' and figure 4 neck lock which both create instant pain. The neck lock being the more brutal but I'll let you decide? ;-) Hope you all had fund anyway and as I said, the locks are great but striking is always going to be a priority either before. during or after or all three in my opinion. :-D 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! 😉
