Warriors Shine at the British Championship Qualifiers

Whoop Whoop!

What a weekend, and we are still crying with pride!

You smashed it on Saturday Warriors. Truly remarkable debut at the highest level.

Imagine, 9 years ago in a hut in Tilgate, Nicky and I stood patiently awaiting the first arrivals through the door.

On Saturday because of your talent, we stood patiently awaiting the British TeamGym Championship Qualifiers to begin. Standing there alongside all the best teams in Great Britain with (in our opinion) the best gymnasts in the whole country was an absolute honour and pleasure.

Bravo squad. Well done indeed.

The way you Warriors performed, confirmed that not only do you belong, you also have the talent to medal, maybe even win it in the future.

The reasons we believe you are the best are as follows;

1. You have No Gym.
2. No Vault.
3. No Competition Tumble Track.
4. No Euro Trampette.
5. No Pits!

…and without the 1 mistake, we like everyone watching, knew a medal could have been yours!!!

Wow wow wow. No joke you were only 1.5 points away from securing Bronze. On debut that is truly remarkable. (we need a vault lively)

At the highest level small margins count, and with the right investment providing you with the correct equipment to train on, we are sure you will ‘Achieve’!

At the very least we ‘Believe’ on a level playing field you will surely give the best a run for their money.

As when given the opportunity to practice on the competition equipment you land for fun…

So proud. So happy and whilst we won’t know until things settle down globally, we believe you definitely deserve to qualify.

Tremendous performance Warriors. One we will never ever forget!

The Chicken is on it’s way…

For those new to Nicky’s WorkShop, our competition incentives is as follows:

  1. Bronze secures you, One piece of chicken, NO chips.
  2. Silver secures you, a Two piece meal with chips and side.
  3. Gold gets you a Ten piece bucket!
Well deserved!

Whilst a novelty 10 years ago, your continued successful relationship with everything Gold is costing us a fortune!

Well done Warriors, the bucket is on its way. Looking forward to tonights pictures of you all licking you lips, wearing your thoroughly deserved medals.

Fantastic performance

In the build up to this years British qualifiers, and the Southern Tournament this Sunday, the Warriors have been working hard on gaining height for multiple twists & future double rotations…

Height Face off in training

If they keep making this kind of progress it can only enhance their chances.

Fantastic implementation of your new sets and the development in such a short space of time is truly inspiring!

Take a bow Warriors.

One of the many fantastic performances on display.

With our local MP Henry Smith watching we could not have been prouder of the way you performed in the display below.

Warriors displaying our development history

His Words of…

‘Fantastic gymnastics display by the children and young people of Carlton and Nicky’s 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)

Confirmed that it was a phenomenal performance from each and every one of you.

We will endeavour to upload as many performances as they come in but for now sit back and watch them fly

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.
