Congrats to Xande on winning the Abu Dhabi Pro in Florida this past weekend. Takedown, pass, mount and choke!
As mentioned before we are planning a pre pan am training camp in San Deigo. After talking with Xande we decided on the week of Feb 27th. Saulo will be back from his seminar tour and the prep for Pans in March will be in full swing. This is going to be open to people not competing in Pans as well, but be sure to come in good shape! If you are interested let me or Tricia know. We will be putting together some Air B n B rooms. We had a great time last august in prep for Masters worlds and this will be a nice way to get some nice weather in Feb.
We are only a couple weeks away from the Fight to Win Tournament and Pro card. We have Ashley and Tessa in their respective matches.
Also we are starting on one of my favorite mat chats with the Little Samurai's and Samurai's: goal setting! They will learn how to set S.M.A.R.T. goals. After two months of talking about growth mindset this really is the perfect subject to launch next. In technique the little samurai's will be going over their scissor sweep and america. The Samurai's will be going over their scissor sweep and collar drag.
The fundamentals will be warming up with their single leg takedown and passing followed by escapes from side control. The advanced will be working on their reviewing their gameplans from the feet to the submission. The all levels will work on passing to the back.
Last weekend Coach Hannah ran a great girls open mat on Sunday with fifteen female grapplers getting together to train. The skill level ranged from multiple Fight to Win pro competitors to brand new people. It is great to see the Colorado female grappling community come together.
We have the Fight to Win Pro with Ashely and Tessa Friday, Feb 10th (ask them for tickets) and then the tournament the following day.
Last week was rocking with classes. Make sure you are learning the new names and faces that are at the academy and keep the family vibe going.
We are going to be doing promotions this week for our Little Samurai's starting on Monday and Samurai's starting on Tuesday.
In the Fundamentals and Samurai classes we will go over the single leg from standing and passing the guard. The all level will go over the cross knee pass attacks. The advanced will be covering attacks from the feet.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
