Sunday’s children complete their MMA gradings, seven gain belt promotions
It was a hectic Sunday morning at The MAC at Haworth today with the usual trio of classes keeping our students flocking through the door, which included a jam-packed Kids MMA session.
We started with an hour on the pads, giving those adults who are a little stressed with the weeks event a chance to punch, kick, knee and elbow the focus pads before finishing off with a little stand-up sparring.
The grappling session was a little low on numbers today but that didn’t stop those who did turn up working on a few things from the mount position. The first half of the session was all about escaping, before looking at a few attacks to finish.
The last hour was the kids session and having graded half of the group next week it was time to look at those who slipped through the net. We started the session with our regular warm-up before moving on to basic and advanced striking combinations. The grappling side of things was intense for many of those being tested, looking at wrist releases, takedowns, guard passes, mount controls, back mount controls and three submissions. We’re pleased to reveal that everyone being tested today passed. A big congratulations to Harley, Jensen, Ziggy, Charlie, Ellie-May, Kylie and Bobby.
A big well done to everyone who attended the centre including Mark, Michelle, Michael and Finn.
A big shout out to our sponsors, The Fleece Inn as well.
See you next time on the mat…
