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…

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.

How To Give A Coach A Cardiac Arrest!!!

Oh my day’s, we need a larger facility!

The following footage is Newton’s law of motion. An object in motion will remain in motion unless another force is applied.

Or in other words when you’re fully committed to a Trampette Double Rotation and then…change your mind!

Dan, trying to fly out the window

Phew…My heart was racing, imagine how fast his was beating.

We are in the process of completing funding applications, however if anyone owns a 30m x 15m space and you want to save Dan’s and 1000’s of children’s lives please contact us today.

Love you Dan

He did it!

You little beauty.

I am too emotional to write anything constructive other than to ask you to please read my previous post ‘There’s courage, then there is Darren Stringer’

Darren Stringer you have just made a grown man cry. I stand here applauding your amazing achievement.

You have just made history and become a living legend

100 Kumite completed. Wow wow wow

Osu!

There’s courage, then there is Darren Stringer…

Darren in training for the ultimate test

Oh my goodness…

A very dear friend of mine is about to attempt something so incredible that I have to share this with the world. If successful he will be the first British man to do so and Martial Art History will be made.

As today, weighing only 69kg he is about to attempt the legendary…

Kyokunshinkai ‘100 Man Kumite’

What’s that?

Well it’s one hundred, I repeat 100 Consecutive Full Contact Karate Fights against 100 different opponents over two and a half hours. Where full contact kicks are permitted to the head, torso and legs. Bare knuckle punches/hand techniques are restricted to the chest and below because…

No head guards, gloves or chest protectors are permitted during this Warrior trial

Furthermore, the only way you can successfully complete the 100 man Kumite is by NOT getting knocked out or getting injured where your unable to fight on. Can you believe that. So after 99 fights if he gets knocked out or unable to continue, that’s it. No cigar. Do not go pass go and collect your Ā£200.

Harsh but the gods honest truth.

I mean imagine for one moment the physical exertion it must take to complete what is effectively, 7 consecutive MMA world championship fights going the full distance of 25mins. Or running a marathon in under 2hrs 30 minutes getting kicked repeatedly every mile!

I’m exhausted writing it.

He has dedicated his entire life to the pursuit of excellence. Endured the toughest training routine ever seen, trying to achieve his dream for this country.

In addition he would be following in the footsteps of our trainer the legendary Steve Arneil who was the 2nd man to successfully complete the 100 man Kumite way back in 1965. His trainer Masutatsu Oyama was the 1st.

Steve Arneil is singlehandedly responsible for Kyokushinkai karate being the massive organisation it is in Britain today due to his completion of the trial.

Therefore Darren I salute you to even attempt it. From the bottom of my heart ‘Go and make history D’

Little man on fire

Osu!

We salute you Charlotte, keep up the tremendous work.

What’s your real age?

Kids say the most amazing things…

My 5 year old taught me maths today.

‘Daddy who is the oldest out of you and Mum?

‘I’m 51 today, your mum is 43’.

‘So mummy’s older then’.

How did you work that out Makaya?

Well 5+1 = 6 and 4+3 = 7 and at School were learning the bigger number wins so mum is older.

Genius!

Have a great day everyone as mine has been enlightening.

One in a Trillion

Happy Birthday Dan

And were lucky to have you…

There’s only one way to describe Dan. Sunshine in a bottle. Un cork him and let his effervescence flow. Your parents have done a magnificent job in raising the kindest, most hardworking trustworthy individual we know.

In 18 years your growth has been a pleasure to witness. Furthermore your integral to everything we do and a big reason why we see you as family. Your the light on a cloudy day mate. Have a fantastic day.

Wall of Fame Day 5

Historic Gold Medal Trampette Performance

To be the first gymnastic teams (without a purpose built facility), to win Gold and 2 Silvers at this years British Gymnastics Southern Tournament is their finest achievement to date.

The shot that launched the first ever www.NW Flyer has to be included. We would usually go in to some bio mechanical breakdown at this point, however the opposition spectating coaches facial expression conveys more than any words we could write.

Stunning Height. Stunning Shaaaape in Flight. Bravo warrior. Absolute thing of beauty.

How its sounds to be a NW Warrior…

Please turn the volume up!

Tribute to The Best Parental Support in the World

A few Trainee Warriors (aged 5-7)
upon hearing that their development had reached competition standard, have asked what it’s like to compete?

Our reply of 1st have fun. Because whats the point of competing if you don’t enjoy it. Secondly, irrespective of the result, the support from your parents ‘The Loud & Proud Posse’ and the bond with your team mates will remain with you for life. Left them somewhat perplexed…

In the interest of transparency for all those who asked, here is raw uncut footage form 1066 Hastings. No edits. No titles. Just the full performance courtesy of Steve Walker Photography.

Hopefully this explains why they are called the L&PP.

So thank you parents for giving these gymnasts the support they truly deserve and for giving them a memory for life.

So Warriors Are You Readeeeeeeeā€¦..?
