Training Report: De La Salle & Future Kimonos

This week, James visited the Junior Squad at the De La Salle College.

While, the school term is technically finished.

The boys were keen to have an additional training.

James taught some takedown techniques that he learned at the blue basement.

James also donated some uniforms from his company Future Kimonos to the great pleasure of the Junior squad.

Thank you James and Jay for volunteering and teaching at the school.

Big Thanks to James and Future Kimonos for donating the uniforms (BJJ Gi, Rash Guards, grappling shorts).

Please check out the link for merchandising.

Training report: Turtle and Serge upgrade to second degree

This week, we taught the topic of the turtle.

It is the last position of our twelve program.

We taught the fundamentals of the position, back take from turtle and three reversals and/or guard retention techniques.

For the submissions, we also taught the clock choke and the rolling crucifix.


James is back from New York where he trained intensily Renzo Gracie Academy.

He was attending the advanced classes on a daily basis under the tutelage of John Danaher.

James has absorbed a vast amount of knowledge during his stay (about 4 months) and we are looking to learn them.

On his first week back, James taught a couple of side control escapes.

James concentrated on nogi training.
Therefore, I would expect him to be teaching nogi in Sandringham on Wednesday and Nogi in Epsom on Thursday.


Laurance also has some merchandise from Future Kimono for sale if you are interested.















Serge received his second degree from the IBJJF.
Another big milestone for the club as we now have 2 IBJJF certified second degrees black belts.

If you are interested to join our club, please come down for a free class or email us if you have any questions.

Come down and join us before the New Year rush as you might miss out as you can close new members if we reach our limits.

Also, we are still taking enrollment for the Junior Squad for term 1 at Sandringham.
