Well done Robbo!

Congrats to Rob Bond, who was awarded two stripes on the old white belt last weekend from Lagarto; in addition a group photo from the new club in Bolton, only been going two weeks and lots of old students making a welcome return and a lot of enquiries about the club, so all looking positive!

Crouching Tiga Children's Grappling Event

Spent the weekend at Milton Keynes reporting on Ebe Ghansah's kids grappling event, making a report for Fighters and getting stuck in reffing, scoring and doing a demo match with Ebe's son! Ebe runs GB MK and is keen to promote more events for children to enter and the kids did their parents and instructors proud, great sportsmanship and some very slick moves for such a young age!

Team Lagarto Bolton opens its doors...........!

Had the first class tonight at the new club in Bolton, a great town centre location at Bridgeman Place, 300 yards from Trinity Street train station and 10 minutes from major motorway networks; training out of Kai Man Academy,Bridgeman Place, Bolton (next to Shell garage) classes are Tuesday and Thursday 715-830pm, £5 a session.
Had a few guys miss the class tonight, but so far the response has been very positive and I hope to build up the club over the next few months ready for Lagarto's return in September. Great to see old students and friends tonight, a good hard sweaty session - see you all again Thursday!
