What was the session like?
There were 40-45 students in attendance, from across the country. Yellow belts to 4th Degree Black Belts. Under 10s to over 50's! There really was something for everyone.
The session started with a quick photo (Mr & Mrs Swain, and Mr Lammin showing off their Holland Cup ambassador T-Shirts) then on to the warm up, led by our own Mrs Swain! We then spent about 45 minutes working on patterns; practising some basic ones individually then working up to patterns of grade watched by a partner providing feedback.
After patterns Mr Lammin took us through some padwork in small groups. Today's focus was side kicks and back kicks on the kick shields, working across the hall. This was followed by getting the safety equipment on, ready for some more drills and combinations led by Mr Whitlock before splitting into similar size groups to work on free sparring. After all that there was time for a bit of stretching before finishing for the day.
I'm sure the Rosie's would be glad to share their experience of the day, and it would be fantastic to see more of you all at the next session!!
