Congratulations to Nathen Pollard on winning March’s Student of the Month. There was no April Student of the month due to us only having 2 sessions. Nathen has returned to kickboxing after a break and has shown great commitment and improvements in his training. You need to watch out when training with Nathen as he can now even kick my head height.
Head coach 4th Dan Steve Lilley continues his progress towards becoming the BKBU heavy weight Semi-Contact champion. The SWKA are also in talks with Plymouth Judo club about running a Martial Arts day at Tavistock college, as a chance for people to come and try different arts and show case their skills.
Linked this we are also considering having some exhibition bouts based around one art or different arts showing their weaknesses and strengths which will be great fun. If you’d like to be a part of this let me know. There’s also talk of it being a charity event and we may have some well know National Martial Artists attend if we’re lucky.
It’s great to see some former students starting to train again more regularly and I know a few others have had personal circumstances change which are affecting their ability to train.
