I just wanted to say how proud I am of one of my Students.
He's grading for Shodan Black belt on Saturday and tonight was his fight night.
This consisted of 20 x 90second rounds with other black belts and brown belts, full contact, including take downs and groundwork (grappling gloves, groin guards, gum shields, shin and insteps and sheer determination).
Note these fights were continuous and there were no breaks in-between each fight.
He had the fortunate task of fighting with me several times including the last fight which I asked the timekeeper to make up to 120seconds.
So I’m so proud as he carried on throughout the night.
He's got until Saturday to heal and go through 4 hours of gruelling examination.
