We are also continuing with our 101 Seminar Series at the end of the month on Saturday, March 25th. Judo Black Belt Will Dampier will run us through a 90 minute workshop on the basics of gi takedowns, focusing on high percentage and low risk skills that chain together.
This workshop is free and open to all north star jiu jitsu students of all levels. Friends of the academy are welcome to attend as well. This workshop requires a gi, so heads up!
Our Junior Samurai stripe challenge this week is Red! Students can earn a red stripe on their belt by successfully completing the following workout:
Repeat x3 (for a total of 60 repetitions on each exercise).
Parents: make sure this workout is done in one session and not spread throughout the day!
