Street Survival Weekend Training June 2007

 

Chris Medhi from Street Survival came to train with us for the weekend.

Chris trained with some of our students at our classes and also trained with Steve Marsden from the Royce Gracie Brazilian Jui-Jitsu Network.

We also took Chris to Glyn Rhodes Boxing Gym (Sheffield Boxing Centre) and Glyn took Chris in the ring to show him some boxing moves.

Whilst at Glyn's gym, Chris also met John "Fireball" Fewkes (current light welterweight) who was training hard for his next fight on Friday July 13 2007 at The Barnsley Metrodome.

Matt Mowatt (ex lightweight professional), who is one of Glyn's Professional Boxer trainers, was also at the gym and took time out to talk to Chris.

Well it was a busy weekend for Chris and we are sure that he fell asleep all the way home on the bus back to London.

Thanks for coming Chris, and we hope that you enjoyed your weekend and will come back again.

Craig and Debbie - Senshido Affiliates April 2007

 

It is with great pleasure to announce that we are now affiliated to Senshido.

Richard Dimitri of Senshido is one of the top five Reality Based Self-Defense (RBSD) instructors in the world.

We trained at the Senshido School in Montreal, Canada, with Richard Dimitri, Lee Castelani, Eric Audet and we also met up with Kenny Ramsahai.

It is great for us both to have expanded our family and it was a great experience to have had the opportunity to learn and meet the team.

We have chosen to incorporate the SPA (Senshido's Professional Alliance) into our current teaching methods to help enhance our curriculum.

Our training curriculum is designed to enhance your survivability. You will learn to heighten your awareness and accurately read your intuition in order to avoid violence, aggression and confrontation.

You will learn to de-escalate and defuse a potential aggressive or violent situation using psychological warfare and strategy.

You will also continue to physically defend yourself against the most common attacks on the street if avoidance and de-escalation failed.
