This week, we cover the topic of the turtle position.
The warm up drills were technical stand up, half guard pass and half guard sweep.
As Stu is in Japan for one month, Igor and Serge shared the teaching responsibilities.
Throw of the month is hip throw.
Some of the techniques taught for the week topic were reversal from turtle, clock choke, bow and arrow choke from turtle, hell choke, back take from turtle.
We had over 20 students during the class so we had to to only 12 people rolling at once.
Next week the topic is Questions and Answers.
We will also cover competitions rules for the NZ grappler competition.
Also, we closed our new intake of new students as we currently are full and need to concentrate on the existing students and ensure safety on the mats as well.
Thanks you for the support

As we are getting closer to graduation, students that are not getting promoted to the next belt will likely to receive stripes instead. If you do not have a black tab on your belt, we cannot give you stripes. Why do we have stripes? The Gracies decided to have a stripes system in order to be different from Judo.

If you think the drop out of white belts is bad enough, the ratio of drop out of the blue belts is worst. I am not sure if I agree with statistics on this picture. But the issue is not really about arguing about the percentages of drop out but more on discussing the reasons for such drop out and what we can do to prevent it. Reasons for the drop out: It takes a long time to achieve a blue belt. It average between 1-3 years. After 1-3 years of training, people loose interest and wants to start a new sport or hobby. The goal of the student was to achieve the blue belt and not the black belt. Personal situations changes over the years. Lot of people that start training are young single males with disposable income. Lot of them are at university level or are single. Add a few more years and they
