June 2022 Grading

Image
  We had our long delayed grading on the 7th of June and we gave the following students their new belts. Ben Uy -- Brown Vinicius Tsugi  -- Brown Signy Crowe -- Purple Max Randall -- Purple Nathan Loo -- Purple Sergiy Sevastyanov -- Blue Ryan Shaw -- Blue Nat Glover -- Yellow After grading we had our traditional have free rolling and pizza. At Auckland BJJ we don't have an exam at the graduation, and instead let our students do a demonstration of the abilities that we have seen them demonstrate in our regular classes.  Here are some of the videos Afterwards we have a free rolling and a feed. We like to feed our students after our graduation, which is a practice we have taken from Tikanga Maori, and we believe it really fosters a great sense of belonging and celebration.

Even though she turned up looking for a Judo class she ended up staying with us. Signy's favourite competition memory is getting two subs and winning bronze at nationals

Auckland BJJ Police Training

  On the 17th of January we had our second Police training session at Auckland BJJ. Several of our members are police officers and they had asked if they can use the Dojo to do some training and practice off duty. We were happy to help and Stu and Jora helped out organizing the training.  We covered a few techniques that we thought would help these officers, and then we did some sparing sessions where they could apply these techniques. Below is a video of one of our arrest the black belt sessions :-) Auckland BJJ is happy to help the NZ police. Here is a gratuitous shot of my daughter and a police car.
