Warriors Double Delight

Whoop Whoop! Phenomenal performance last night Warriors and your development is first class.

From Double rotations to Tsukahara preps, the previous hard work was clearly evident. Bravo Warriors!

Last night’s Double Rotation development including thrills and spills…

Last night’s Tsuk prep’s…

Tsuk Prep’s Leatherhead

In summary every warrior should be immensely proud of what you have achieved thus far. Especially training without a gym!

As it’s clear once you’re in one, you do not look out of place alongside European and British gymnasts.

Fantastic development

Original Warrior Returns Home…

Wow, fantastic session Warriors. The development on show tonight was first class. The most pleasing thing was seeing you all not look out of place training alongside European and British gymnasts.

The hard prep work you have put in over the last 3 months was evident in your performances.

Well done indeed.

Furthermore to have Eileen Robertson one of Nicky’s original Warriors from 2011 make a guest appearance was the icing on the cake.

Here she is with Sensei aged 15…

Here she is tonight…

Got to say after 8 years that is mighty impressive. Your really going to hurt tomorrow!

Thank you all for a wonderful session and we will be uploading the videos shortly.

Funding Process is a Bare Knuckle Thriller…

When asked how we’re feeling about our project going live…

The only comparison we can make, is it’s like strapping yourself in to the scariest roller coaster ride in the world, whilst blindfolded.

The inital feeling of excitement as the seat clicks on it’s ascent, is quickly replaced by fear when the pinnacle has been reached and you know there is no turning back! Even if you wanted to.

We’re off…

Whether it’s the rush of wind or stomach nausea that triggers your scream reflex, hurtling downwards at warp speed into unknown territory immediately turns euphoric whoop’s in to what if’s?

Fortunately we have your support, helping us through this ride. As alone the journey would be increasingly daunting.

To understand why we were screaming at a point where we should be whooping, we sought council from one of our influential freinds who said… ‘Full public exposure is scary, and ironically is precisely what this project is about’.

Nodding in agreement whilst disguising my need for elaboration bought me time to ask ‘In what sense?

‘Once mobile, NW will be able to reach more areas exposing more children to a previously unknown commodity of a mobile gymnasium. Providing a mechanism to help more children become active, can only be positive. Furthermore the courage it takes to try something new, is precisely the courage needed to achieve this. Therefore enjoy the ride’.

Articulately put, and immediately made me want to re wrtie previous posts as he captured the esscence of the project in one paragraph.

In summary, we are still screaming on the way down, however with your fantastic support, the courage to let go of the rails is building.

So please click the link and register a Like, Comment, Share, or Pledge and together let’s build the courage to put our ‘Hands in the air’ http://www.spacehive.com/where-warriors-are-made

How To Give A Coach A Cardiac Arrest!!!

Oh my day’s, we need a larger facility!

The following footage is Newton’s law of motion. An object in motion will remain in motion unless another force is applied.

Or in other words when you’re fully committed to a Trampette Double Rotation and then…change your mind!

Dan, trying to fly out the window

Phew…My heart was racing, imagine how fast his was beating.

We are in the process of completing funding applications, however if anyone owns a 30m x 15m space and you want to save Dan’s and 1000’s of children’s lives please contact us today.

Love you Dan

He did it!

You little beauty.

I am too emotional to write anything constructive other than to ask you to please read my previous post ‘There’s courage, then there is Darren Stringer’

Darren Stringer you have just made a grown man cry. I stand here applauding your amazing achievement.

You have just made history and become a living legend

100 Kumite completed. Wow wow wow

Osu!

There’s courage, then there is Darren Stringer…

Darren in training for the ultimate test

Oh my goodness…

A very dear friend of mine is about to attempt something so incredible that I have to share this with the world. If successful he will be the first British man to do so and Martial Art History will be made.

As today, weighing only 69kg he is about to attempt the legendary…

Kyokunshinkai ‘100 Man Kumite’

What’s that?

Well it’s one hundred, I repeat 100 Consecutive Full Contact Karate Fights against 100 different opponents over two and a half hours. Where full contact kicks are permitted to the head, torso and legs. Bare knuckle punches/hand techniques are restricted to the chest and below because…

No head guards, gloves or chest protectors are permitted during this Warrior trial

Furthermore, the only way you can successfully complete the 100 man Kumite is by NOT getting knocked out or getting injured where your unable to fight on. Can you believe that. So after 99 fights if he gets knocked out or unable to continue, that’s it. No cigar. Do not go pass go and collect your £200.

Harsh but the gods honest truth.

I mean imagine for one moment the physical exertion it must take to complete what is effectively, 7 consecutive MMA world championship fights going the full distance of 25mins. Or running a marathon in under 2hrs 30 minutes getting kicked repeatedly every mile!

I’m exhausted writing it.

He has dedicated his entire life to the pursuit of excellence. Endured the toughest training routine ever seen, trying to achieve his dream for this country.

In addition he would be following in the footsteps of our trainer the legendary Steve Arneil who was the 2nd man to successfully complete the 100 man Kumite way back in 1965. His trainer Masutatsu Oyama was the 1st.

Steve Arneil is singlehandedly responsible for Kyokushinkai karate being the massive organisation it is in Britain today due to his completion of the trial.

Therefore Darren I salute you to even attempt it. From the bottom of my heart ‘Go and make history D’

Little man on fire

Osu!
