13th November 2017 Weekly Bulletin

Good Morning everyone…

Last week was a fantastic week as we welcomed the great Ramlan Ortega Sensei from Malaysia with impressive turn-outs for both the junior and adult classes! I’m sure everyone who shared the experience will agree with me that Sensei Ramlan is a great teacher and a great man, and it was wonderful to have the opportunity to train with him so often in just one week. Well done to everyone who got involved and we look forward to his next visit to the UK to train under his expertise again.

This week we can welcome back a regular full dojo schedule and things are heating up for the juniors!

JUNIOR JIYUWAZA COMPETITION

This event is fast approaching! The event will take place on Sunday 26th November and start at 10am and hopefully be finished around lunch time. It will be at the Nottingham Eagle Dojo in West Bridgeford, please find the address below. The competition will run on knockout rules and is open to any student in a Nottingham Dojo who knows the following techniques:

  • 10 & Under Category:
  • Ippome Kumite

  • 11 Plus Category:
  • Ippome Kumite
    Nihome Kumite
    Sanbome Kumite

  • Where? – The Nottingham Eagle Dojo: The Eagle Building, Riverside Way, Nottingham NG2 1DP
  • In our Dojo these are the techniques you will only learn if you attend the Junior Advanced class.

    This is the first event of this kind to be taking part in UK, and we are very excited to invite everyone from around Nottingham. If you are interested please fill out the form below to register your entry – including a small concession/entry fee of £5 to cover the cost of the trophies and medals for juniors who are taking part. I hope you are all excited as we are about this event, and I look forward to seeing lots of you taking part in this event.

    We encourage parents to stay in attendance at the event and show support for all the juniors and add to the atmosphere within the dojo. If this does not suit you then you are also allowed to leave your child in our care.

    To enter you must complete an entry form completed with the fee – please find this attached!

    Good luck everyone, the hard work and training starts now!

    ADULTS; WE NEED YOUR HELP!

    For this event to run as smoothly as possible we are calling for as many adult volunteers for the day to help manage the juniors and to act as judges! There will be multiple matches happening simultaneously so we need as many of you as possible to help. It will be a great day with lots of fun and positivity and you may even get to take advantage of the large mat area yourself!

    It is on Sunday 26th November and only for a few hours from 10am – lunchtime. Any help will be hugely appreciated.
    Do not worry, we will let all volunteers know of judging criteria and what is required and I promise it will be nothing too difficult for anybody.

    Please let us know if you are available it will be greatly appreciated.
