The Pen – Issue 9

 

Finished off October with a Bang! A team of 5 travelled down for the 2018 Pan Pacific Championships. Big congrats to Ally and Sanford for competing in their first huge Jiu Jitsu championship. You both did a fantastic job against very hard seasoned campaigners, well done.  Sam had a awesome Sunday dominating her weight class to win gold. Be sure to congratulate her next time you see her for the best performance of the weekend by far. Our two brown belt representatives had a couple of hard days but led the team by digging deep. As always the club did exceptionally well winning 2 gold, 2 silver and 4 bronzes. For all those wishing to compete in 2019 keep an eye out on this newsletter for the release of some dates in Asia and Australia leading up to next years Pan Pacs.

The year is not over yet, and your memberships to the NT’s only academy comes into its own this week. Peter visits the club next Wednesday (free for members) with a few of us to travel with him on his seminar leg in Indonesia. Greg, one of our old members and now the owner of the De Been 100% Jiu jitsu Wodonga academy will also join us for a week of training leading up to Pete’s visit.  For those that haven’t met him, introduce yourself and ask him for a roll, you will be glad you did.  Also take time to check out his Facebook and Instagram pages, no one promotes and loves their club more! We look forward to having them both here next week. Look forward to seeing you all then.
