Winter is upon us and so is Winter training.. my favourite time of the training calender…think of it like this… if you ride and you’re for real you ride through the seasons not just summer…if you surf …same …Winter training to me is a building phase …strengthening our resolve building foundations and pillars …tonight im introducing Winter warm up …more of toe the line and a new left of centre trapping hands drill.. cant wait …see you on the the mat regards Sifu
Dont miss training today …winter grading will be upon us before you know it …see you on the mat regards Sifu
Hi everyone this weeks theme is hardcore drills …then prepping for winter grading ..there is a lot of wisdom on the mat dont be afraid to ask a senior for help …thats how we all got here …regards Sifu
Great week of training everyone thank you …pushing the classes out to 90 mins makes a world of difference…tuesdays are hotting up had an intense night lots of combos and a huge effort by eveyone ..the long term plan is taking shape i want you to think of this class as a competition prep class…as every grading is as intense as any comp and you literally have to fight for your belts so try not to miss it ..lunchtime today will be the equal of tuesday night and tomorrow the weeks wrap up… see you on the mat …regards Sifu
Hi everyone im back to full roster from today…so hope to see you on the mat tonight ..most of you are aware the meeting with the surgeon wasnt so great but im over that and preparing for the task ahead …all i can do is be as fit as possible to minimse recovery time and get back to full strength as quickly as possible ..ive thrown myelf at this at 100% for nearly 50 years so there are no real surprises …thank you for your support… means the world to me .. onwards and upwards …this week we are taking the old school training to a new level ..ive gone through my old training diaries and have some challenging next level drills for skills …i love the old ways …dont get me wrong modern technology is awsome and sports science allows us to understand whats actually going on at a deeper level..but it is rooted in the old ways.. it came from the old ways ..im sure the monks didnt discuss fast twitch fibres versus slow twitch fibres …they new from hundreds of years of experimentation what works …so see you on the mat .. kuen yao summ faat …Sifu
Well here we are seeing the surgeon at 11.20 to se if i can get my career back on track fingers crossed
There will be no classes on over the Easter longweekend, you are however welcome to come in and train if you have access or team up with someone who does. Then it’s back to usual training on Tuesday.
Until Sifu has recieved treatment for his injuries Tuesday 7pm BJJ Foundations is BJJ Open Mat – meaning come in to roll or drill, but it’s not a structured class.
Have a fantastic few days off!!
See you all soon.
12:15 Tuesday classes are BACK!
They are a Peak Performance class run by Adrian AKA Tony Pepperoni. Tomorrow is day one and the theme is: focusing on developing hand speed, footwork and conditioning the body.
If you’ve ever had the opportunity to do one of his sparring classes you’ll know you’re in for a treat.
See you on the mat.

Firstly congratulations to all that graded on Saturday it was a very high standard, I’m very proud of your efforts. We’ll post some photos and video on Facebook shortly.
Thank you for everyone who came yesterday to the Alexandria Sunday Funday, it was a great day we’ll be getting involved in more like them so we will need a demo team!
This week we’ll be prepping for the Wooden Dummy seminar this Sunday that I’m very excited about. It will be an intense day so make sure you bring your A game. It starts at 11am, and will run for at least 4 hours. (Cost is $199).
This week’s theme is all about speed and explosiveness. Tomorrow night’s boxing theme is setups and feints and a revision on the punch count.
So see you on the mat tonight!
