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…

My Word, Sensei is on Fire!

Oh my goodness, rejuvenated from last weeks activities Nicky was as pumped up to coach this week as I have ever seen.

With her willing Warriors at the ready today produced another 2 first time moves.

Whoop Whoop!

1st up it’s Diddy Warrior Olivia. Who has worked tirelessly on linking her Round Off Flick. Today was her day to put all that together and produce…

Olivia’s 1st Unsupported Round Off Flick

Her 1st ever unsupported ROF. Stunning development Warrior and another shout out to the development coaches Daniel Ford & Charlotte Doyle who together are smouldering alongside the burning Sensei.

Who in 6 hours using a matrix of psychological and physical preps, duped Thea into doing this…

Thea’s Straight Full Straight Full

Unbelievable development and coaching. It has been a pleasure to learn so much from you this week. In addition seeing the results is even more inspiring.

Osu Sensei

I cant wait to get back to work to see it live. Fantastic start to the week Warriors.

‘What are Weeeeee?’

Summer Camp 1st Time Moves Continue…

Wow Wow Wow…What an afternoon!

What a week of development. From Dundee to Crawley we have had the pleasure of watching so many happy gymnasts perform debut moves that this summer will be hard to beat. However you Warriors keep proving me wrong.

First up its Kiki who has been tirelessly working on developing her Round Off Flick Unsupported. Her dedication and commitment is evident in this attempt and her cheeky personality too.

Love it.

Next up it’s Harmony who since conquering her fear of the round off flick has become a prep junkie now she knows the results. To see her perform this was amazing as in only 2 months she has improved to a level where she never previously thought reachable.

Fantastic work Daniel Scott Ford & Charlotte Doyle as alongside the stunning development in the videos above, there must be stunning development coaching going on behind the scenes. Take a well deserved bow all 4 of you!

Next up inspired by the previous 2 we have Natalie the 1hr wonder. After arriving at 12pm due to various public transport issues, in Natalie’s mind (if its even possible) was more determined than normal as she felt robbed of time.

The resulting commitment produced this…

Knowing her it will be Straight-Straight Full by next Friday!

However not to be out done last but not least Thea. Who was stuck in the middle of another Sensei matrix of tricking her mind. Whilst working tirelessly as she always does, Nix saw the possibility with her new found strength and confidence to mix things up and get her to do this…

Thea is possibly the strongest athlete we know. She never breaks down. Never stops and has unlimited potential. No shock she just keeps getting better and better. I wont reveal the final move Nix has in her web but will post and explain why she has her doing this prep upon completion of the final move.

Stunning development Warriors

Was a pleasure to see this afternoon moves. Definitely worth getting off my sick bed for.
