On Saturday 14th August 2010 I was lucky enough to attend a seminar with John Clarke, hosted by The Fitness Academy.
The first couple of hours of the seminar focused on Sombo wrestling, specifically some techniques that are not commonly seen in other forms of grappling. In particular, I really liked the rolling take down and groin stretch submission.
The second half focused on Judo. We worked through the syllabus from the very beginning to reinforce and fine tune our existing knowledge.
The session rounded off with an intense Judo grading, where many of the seminar attendees gained promotion in their judo grade.
Special thanks to Peter Squire for being my ‘uke’ throughout the day and during the grading.
I would personally like to thank John Clarke and his co-instructor Collin Carrott for presenting a brilliant seminar and really look forward to training with them again.
