The Pen – Issue 7


The club started its next decade with a huge bang this month. September was our biggest visitation numbers for the month ever! A great sign that everyone is making the most of their memberships and attending as many classes as possible, we even got a couple of 6am classes with 8 or more students. Keep up the great work team!!!

After a week break the kids will be hitching to get back to training on the 16th October. Kids fees are due in the first week, and will be discounted by 20% for that week only, so be sure to speak to Nikki about payment.

One of our long time members and coaches was promoted to brown belt this week. This is fantastic effort that has come about by many years of training at least 4 times a week. Well done John, this milestone is a testament to your hard work and the commitment you have to your club! Also promoted Tuesday was one of the other very consistent team members. It’s amazing that she can fit the number of Jiu Jitsu and Kickboxing classes in that she does in any given week. Well done Maria.

Preparations are in full swing for those travelling to Melbourne for the Pan Pacs. The competition is consistently the biggest in the Southern hemisphere, is an IBJJF event and is highly recommended to anyone that has aspirations to compete at the highest level in the sport. It offers learning experiences at all levels and no Darwin team member has ever left without having further developed their game! Wish Ali, Samford, Sam, Ryan, Luke and Chris all the best before they take off the last weekend of October.
