Weekend session

Somewhere for welsh jitsuka to chat and plan events

Weekend session

Postby Robw » Wed Apr 19, 2006 2:14 pm | #1

Right Ladies and Gents,

I have in mind running a one off extra session in the near future.

My plan is to have it on a Saturday or a Sunday and for it to be an all day event, to be held either at Sophia Gardens or somewhere similar.

I want to take some time to focus on some core skills such as falling, multiple attackers, weapons and of course Nage No Kata.

I'm hoping to ask some guest inspectors from my past - Dave Manwaring, Ady Tredwell, Becky, and at least one other.

Basically I'm after some feedback, in particular

1) Is it a good idea and would you come?

2) Would you be prepared to pay up to £5 for it?

3) Is there anything you'd like to be covered?

4) Is there anyone you'd like me to invite to attend or teach?


Once I've got an idea of the interest from within the club and talked to some of the proposed teachers i'll be in a position to invite other people from Swansea and outside of the region.

Hell Yes, I for one think it's a brilliant idea. the weekend is also good as there less of a chance of it clashing with other work things. as for the quetstions

1) Yes

2) Yes

3) Wouldn't mind sharps :twisted: We'll i've never had to face a sharp in a grading or otherwise so am a little aprehensive that the first time i'll encounter a sharp will be in a grading!(obviously whether shaprs can be brought on depend on what grades turn up! But i think definitely weapons, multiple attackers(with and without weapons and not neesserily jsut 2 man) and NNK should be covered. maybe for more fun and diversity some kind of Bo/Jo staff techniques or bokken work?

4) For events like these i think the more the merrier philosophy applies, ovbiously it depends on the size of the location and how many instructors come. if there are space availibe after ours and swansea then i know quite a few people from the west country that would possible be interested in attending.

But big or small it's def something i'd go to

Cool - thanks for the feedback - just as an aside, how many of the club are aware of this site ? and in particular of this forum ? We need to spread the word.

As to sharps, there are some insurance issues that I'd have to look into, but either way I can guarantee some weapons work that will scare the **** out of you.

Regarding Bokken or Bo, that may depend on who'se available to teach it. I'm sure we can accomodate though.

I'd be interested,

When The UWIC section was created I sent out about 5 pm's to let people know. I only pm'd people that I knew went to UWIC. :)

Yeah if someone could pass out the details tonight that would be helpful, there's no real point to this forum unless the majority of the club are at least aware of it and checking it regularly.

Oh and I'll be back on the mat from next week. And I have PLANS!!!!

As always Rob,  if ya need a lift, gimme a ring

I'd also be up for a weekend session and I think a saturday would be good because we'd get more down from swansea than if we had the session "overlapping" their sunday session.

Falling would definitely be good (as our session with Dave M showed), and I could definitely stand to do some multiple armed attackers stuff.

See ya tonight or next week

Hello!

Sorry to crash your forum - hope you don't mind! :D

I know that there would definately be interest from Swansea if you are planning on running a course. Especially for those of us going for brown in the summer - stuff with weapons, multiple attackers etc would def be good.

As you said, a Saturday would definately be best as we train on a Sunday (as you know).

When were you thinking of holding it? Would it be in the near future (as in next couple of weeks) or in a while? An idea of dates would be great! :D

Cheers!

Um I could be wrong but if you let Swansea come you could be in danger of holding a South Wales "Regional Course".  :nana: bout flippin time  :P

As there are only two clubs in Wales, any visit from an outside instructor tends to be seen as a regional  :) The year Swansea has had two regionals, with visits from Ady and one of the Mortimers, hopefully Johno will be coming down for the coming term's regional.

Nah you see you dont know the whole system.

Officailly each club should get two club visits from a 2dan or above every year.  you should get a senior primary visit every term AND  regional course every term.

You cant count club visits as a regional course.
(Also the charging system from the office is different for a regional as compared to a club visist)

also the cost per head for a club visit should be £5 or £6, but a regional course (which should be 4 or 5 hours) should cost £10
