Week of Jan3-January 9: Happy New Year!!!!!
Opening Year Statement
Word of the Month: Ethos- “The characteristic spirit of a culture, era, or community as manifested in its beliefs and aspirations.” What is our Ethos, its simple “Respect. Courage. Discipline.” All schools have an ethos, mascots usually represent that ethos in some kind of way. What’s your schools mascot? what do you think that means as far as the importance of the schools culture and its students? Think about our academies ethos and how we are trying to impact you as a martial artist.
Youth Classes 7+– Wrestling Beginners and Advanced
Of course we can go over all aspects of Jiu Jitsu, because that’s what we teach here. But make this whole month about developing our students WRESTLING capabilities. Getting on top, getting up from the bottom, Top control, Bottom escapes, making and breaking grips, Top Spins, sit outs, ALL THE FUN STUFF. Isolate the live training with specific training. Takedowns only. Hold em down in certain positions. start them off in positions like a single or unlocked double. king of the hill, get on top drills like when they sit back to back , both have singles ,etc. There are many things to use this month.
