Courage comes in many forms....sometimes just coming to class takes courage, as does getting ready for grading...it only takes one step at a time. ... See MoreSee Less
Courage takes so many forms. Having courage is being brave enough to face up to what we fear and moving forward into the unknown. Quite often students come to me and say they would like to try sparring but fear it. I tell them that I was always afraid before every competition and sparring session. But I did not move away from the fear or let it control me. If we don't constantly look for new challenges where there is an element of the unknown then we are constantly moving away from fear and we never have the opportunity to face situations with courage....we are not willing to take a risk. No risk no gain….Andy
Reminder - time to have a real go at your syllabus with the Green Belt to Brown Tip Intensive. Saturday 18 November at 3.00pm – 4.30pm. Cost is $40. Black Belts train for free. It counts for two sign-offs. Please register via email at email@example.com.From Green Belt, you start moving away from “create distance and escape” to really breaking balance hard with techniques that are powerful, direct and efficient. This includes strikes, throws, joint breaks and submissions. Northstar Ju Jitsu was developed from Taekwondo, Kickboxing (including Muay Thai), Tenjin Shin-yo Ryu Ju Jutsu (from which Judo was developed), Daito Ryu Aiki Jujutsu (from which Aikido was developed) and Systema (the martial arts taught to the Russian Special Forces). By combining the best parts of these powerhouse systems, we are able to deliver you a highly effective martial arts system….and intensive.This session will be perfect for grading preparation, or as intensive for those wishing to improve their technique. The focus will be purely on multiple defence, self defence and ground defence from Green Belt to Brown Tip. If you are Brown Belt+, this will be a great revision (as you know you need to know this for your belt levels).p.s. If you are going for the Blue Belt to Red Belt grading and you have not done the pre-assessment by me, this session will be the perfect time to do so. We will also be able to help you correct any areas of weakness.
