Warriors Courage Win’s The Battle Against Fear…

Warriors showing their skills in a purpose built facility is a thrilling sight to see.

On Sunday we witnessed an absolutely epic display of courage by the Warriors that will live long in the memory.

For the past 3 months they have been working tirelessly, preparing their mind, body and souls for Double Rotations.

Which if like myself you will never achieve this magnificent feat, I have been told once in flight, it tests the size of your minerals.

Primarily because a forward Double Rotation is a blind landing. In addition the centrifugal force created, increases your body mass by 6 to 8 times. Therefore putting a tremendous load through the body upon landing.

Not for the faint hearted that’s for sure!

Thus making Sunday’s session even more special. As whilst training at Maiden Bower Junior School is great for developing their technique, without foam pits or resin landings they can not practice the full preps to gain the crucial spacial awareness needed for it to become autonomous.

Therefore the following footage is snippets of all the gymnasts trusting their training, to go boldly where they have never been before!

Warriors working through from 1 and a 1/4 flat backs to Double’s on their 1st visit to Horsham…

My Word, a magnificent display of heart, desire and developing technical ability.

Bravo Warriors. Stunning performance.

A massive thank you to the ‘The Horsham Centre’ for letting us use your magnificent facilities.

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’ www.spacehive.com/where-warriors-are-made

Have you ever crowd funded before? If so please share your experience in the comments section.
