2009 Year Review
Darryl Jones (English C class) semi-contact, 75kg men Darren Clift (English C class), Light weight Ladies semi-heavy Emily Byng ( English C Class) , Light welterweight WCF full contact John Farrally (English B class) Light heavyweight BKBU full contact Phil Carter (English B class).
The second half of the year had Combat Jujitsu Competitionsand a ground work seminar organised by Sensei Gary Taylor, who is taking the ground game in our art to higher levels year on year. Gary will be competing in a European Brazilian Jujitsu competition in Lisbon later this month. We wish him well.
We also had our annual camping trip with live music (Dawnfest) plus another Combat Jujitsu Tournament.
Combat jiu-Jitsu tournament - Peterborough
Another great day for Chongshin Do, once again students stepped out of the comfort zone to compete in a purely grappling tournament. Fighting under the Chongshin Do name 7 of us competed in a wide range of weights.
All the students fought with great pride,
Steve Byng, Steve Walter, Chris Corbett and Sarah Fryer all had multiple fights holding there own against some very tough and skilled adversaries.
Those Byng sisters did it again, in the Ladies division Emily took the Silver Medal and Clarissa took the Bronze. Not content with that Emily then entered the ladies absolute division fighting against very high level ladies, after another two hard fights she came away with the Bronze medal.
It made me very proud to see all these students facing there fears and coming out on top, I hope in the future more of you will join us.
