A little update on our classes this week!
A great week here at The Warrior Academy. In our Martial Arts classes across Wiltshire and Somerset this week we focused on boxing sparring to make students focus on their guards and footwork. All students have shown an improvement in speed and reaction times which is fantastic.
One of the main drills we worked on in our Tae Kwon Do classes was the crescent kick pad drill, once students completed the outside, inside (crescent kick) punch combination on the pad they moved on to outside, inside, jumping spinning crescent kick. Giving them a combination which can help them win in the sparring comp to come. Students really impressed the Instructors with this drill and really enjoyed.
The classes were very fast paced this week with some awesome fitness sessions included toward the end of each session. A lot of fitness and technique based games, sparring and pad drills with a good stretch to finish.
We’ve had quite a few new students in class this week, so a big welcome to all the new Warriors! As always our students are helpful and welcoming and we gave each new student a mentor, normally an older more senior student to help them with their technique throughout.
Our brand new weapons course started with the Kali course this week, students really took to the new techniques learning lots already and by picking up the first 5 strikes in the first lesson working in pairs setting a good base to build on over the next 9 weeks and into the summer holidays!
Big well done to all students who completed their white belt uniform test this week! It’s always a challenge to complete the first test which is a behavioural check list at home. These students now wear the Warrior Academy official uniform with pride in class :).
In our advanced classes we began to pick up the nunchucks again to add variety to the line work. We have been splitting the Juniors and Seniors far more and look to make further changes to our clubs to make room for more seniors.
Over this week we will focus on self defence, board breaking and flexibility 🙂
