Yesterday we had testing in the Kids MMA class and the Pre-teens class. J and A tested for their yellow belts and Liyah tested for her orange belt. I started their testing on Monday as a review of names and techniques. They knew all the terms and techniques and then some, so they were definitely ready to test. Not only did they know their techniques, they had the physical fitness capabilities to test for their new rank. These kids did an AWESOME job and definitely deserved their new ranks. Congrats kids!
This past week our advanced adult MMA students went to test for their new ranks. This time we did testing a little different. We had 4 students test for their black belts so Sifu Peter wanted to do something different from our ordinary week testing. First the students that were testing for their black belts went to Calico on Wednesday, August 15th. In Calico the students were tested on their navigation and survival skills. The students were there until the Thursday, August 16th in the afternoon the students left for Las Vegas and trained in the windy, humid heat. On Friday, the 17th, we trained at the gym hotel for about an hour then went to do a sparring and grappling session at Vanderlei Sylva’s gym in Las Vegas. Other students that tested for their belts also did intense training in Las Vegas as well. There was a lot that went on for belt testing. Such as knowledge of the Wind Combat MMA System book, intense conditioning, climate change training, etc. Overall it was a great testing and our students achieved their new ranks. This was the first black belt testing that was done for The Wind Combat System.
We will be closed Wednesday, August 15th until Saturday, August 18th due to Black Belt testing. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Yesterday, one of our Pre-teens, Aaliyah, tested for her yellow belt. Aaliyah has been doing MMA at our school for a little over two months. Within the two months she has trained with us, she was able to learn and perfect her yellow belt skills. Her yellow belt was well deserved.
