For the past 2 weeks, I am been off on holidays and therefore have not posted my usual weekly training report.
We have covered the Knee on the belly position and the north south position for the fundamentals while the advanced continued on the back attack system.
This week, we will cover guard submissions for our fundamentals.
Blain from Sandringham Dojo will be leaving back to his home country soon and we will have a farewell dinner tonight after training (Monday 11/02/19).
It will held at Paradise Restaurand (Indian buffet).
Also, Epsom location is getting near maximum capacity but there are still space available at our latest location (681 Sandringham Road, Sandringham).
If you want to start learning or if you have past experience and would like to continue training, please send us an email or pop in for a free class.
We do not have a contract, $20 per week on automatic payment.
Due to the above factors, we do create a waiting list once we have reach our maximum capacity to ensure a good ratio of instructors and students but also safety on the mats due possible over crowding.
Also, the competition is up soon: Saturday 23 February 2019
Deadline to enter is 19 Feb at midnight.
As usual, the club will refund half of the entries of our competitors.
We also have our $100 Cash bonus for the person that does the most submissions at the event.

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. As it takes 1-3 years between belts, it is nice to receive stripes once in a while. How often do we give stripes? It is usually done during graduation which is usually held twice a year (August and December). What if you miss the graduation event? No worries, we will give them during the following classes. How many stripes can I get? You can get up to 4 stripes. Is there a minimum number of stripes in order to get the next belt? No, in fact some schools do not bother with stripes. You can move to the next belt even if you do not have any stripes. What is the red tab for? It is for the instructors. A blue
I will teach you a black belt magic trick in Jiu Jitsu. If you want a student to disappear: give him a blue belt. It is recurring event in the life of an instructor and a club. 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
