Lottie Breaks Through At GymShinKai Debut…

Lovely to see the new faces at tonight’s GymShinKai session to witness something special.

Anyone’s 1st attempt at anything is always a test of the mind. However, your first wood break is always something you will never forget.

It was our pleasure to witness Charlotte Dale step up to the challenge, inspire every young girl watching and show, anything is achievable if you just believe.

Stunning performance. so proud of you, and thank you for inspiring a whole new generation of GymShinKai Warriors. Osu!

In true tradition you always keep your 1st piece

It is with great honour to announce that this weeks Gymshinkai session will be featuring Sensei Robin Dale 5th Dan a true master of his art and his beloved daughter Charlotte.

With over 40 years experience and about to Grade for his 6th Dan, there is no better dedicated student of a martial art. Well aside from his wife Val who also has 5 Dan’s.

In summary, its an extremely safe night out in their company

The Shotokan specialist is known widely for his very effective techniques and his high level coaching ability where most, if not all of his students, have gone on to achieved black belt status over his illustrious career.

Thank you Robin Dale for Stepping into the breach yet again and covering for Darren Stringer who sends his apologies whilst he is away this week teaching in Norway. He is looking forward to his return Friday 7th

Looking forward to seeing you all on Friday

Gym-Shin-Kai Breaks New Boundaries

A massive thank you to Sensei Darren Stringer (4 x World Champion) from Budo Kyokushinkai for passing on his extensive knowledge of martial arts, whilst inspiring children with his technical ability.

Darren’s ‘Gun Shot Pop’ Mawashi Geri

I forgot how quick he is.

Definitely need to sharpen up my pad work, otherwise I fear the concussion that will ensue!

More importantly, a huge shout out must go to all the debutant Trainee ‘Dragon Warriors’ whom attended last nights session.

Well done indeed.

Some great potential on display!

All morning our house has been filled with cries of Hi Ya and Osu as they punch and kick repeatedly. The only respite from the cacophony is when they pause and say for the umpteenth time…

‘I can’t believe Uncle Darren chopped this piece of wood Daddy. With his bare hands’!


Thank you Uncle Darren from Makaya

Cheer’s D, for contributing to one of the loudest Saturday mornings in our history, and for making an inspirational difference in their lives!

Look forward to seeing you all next week. Have a great weekend everyone

A New Move For The New Year

Hi everyone and a belated happy new year to you all.

Last year the Warriors made history by becoming the first team to win a British Gymnastic ranking event, without having their own gymnastic facility to train in.

This year they are aiming to make history by becoming the first team to qualify for the British Championships under the same parameters.

If the current training is anything to go by, then they have a good chance.

Zoe’s 2 and a half twist off trampette. Wow!

Now it would be the equivalent of Crawley Town beating Manchester United at Old Trafford. However I was there when we only lost 1 nil to them in the FA Cup a few seasons ago. Actually on United’s current form I believe Crawley would win now!

Looking forward to see (if successful) if we can make history once again!

Warriors are you Readeeeeeeeeeeeeeee?
