Congratulations to all the guys who received new belts this past Saturday – they were all thoroughly deserved! Also thanks to the students who turned up on Saturday for the open matt, grading ceremony and the party which ran until 10pm 🙂 Wonder how many people made it for training Sunday morning?!
The beginning of the day was spent with sparring (no class, just open matt) a lot of people turned up which let to a traffic jam of sorts as people queued up to take turns rolling.
With the day over we got down to some drinking, which did me no favors as I was in work for 9am the following day – thank you all for being so considerate in passing me a seemingly endless stream of lager. Next up for some of us is the Copa Alma 3 tournament which will be held on 9/11 in Nerima – it’s 4 months since I competed due to injury, so needless to say I am full of nerves when I think about it, even at this early stage!
