His Words of…

‘Fantastic gymnastics display by the children and young people of Carlton and Nicky‚Äôs Workshop at Maidenbower Junior School. Thanks for inspiring #Crawley and offering opportunity. I was grateful to be invited and appreciate the contribution of coaches as well as local parents’. (Henry Smith MP post on Linked In 21st July)

How to get rid of Debut Competition Nerves…

In 1989 I was fortunate to get selected to fight for the British Kyokushinkai Karate Team. Jubilation upon my selection quickly turned to panic when the task in hand dawned on me.

Questions of ‘What if I loose in front of everyone including my parents’. Or worse, get knocked out! ‘What if I let my team mates down’, were constant negative thoughts going around my head.

I felt sick to my stomach. I Could not sleep, eat, felt drained and so unfit.

However my Shihan at that time the great Steve Arneil said ‘Carlton nerves are natural everyone feel nervous. However fear comes from lack of preparation’.

Osu Shihan but can you elaborate?

‘Have you trained hard enough?’

Osu!

‘Do you feel fit enough’

Osu!

‘To have been selected to compete shows you must be technically good enough’

Osu!

‘So relax and enjoy the day because remember your the man in the arena, and very few get to do what your about to do’

Osu Shihan.

One of those wax on wax off moments if your old enough to understand. If not read the following…

So to all Warriors. Enjoy the day and remember each and everyone of have worked your socks off and you deserve to be there. Furthermore each and everyone of you are definitely a better gymnast than I will ever be.

Good luck Warriors and looking forward to seeing you all making memories for life.

I have never forgotten my first comp, my team mates on that day and hopefully never will.
