Newsletter: September 2022

Welcome, grading dates in the calendar, an event for members and clients to let their hair down and the usual chat about everything Elemental Fitness and the EKA.

Let’s get to it!

Kickboxing Classes mentions

Kids: Ellie Walker – Ellie hasn’t been training with us for long, but from her first session she has been dedicated and always gives it 100%, even on her off days. She is fast, furious, and aggressive but all in a controlled manner and is a bright star for the future. Ellie sparred for the first time earlier this month and was a little cautious, as soon as she stepped outside of her comfort zone, she was on it, not afraid and displayed a good understanding of what sparring is all about. Great effort Ellie, keep up the hard work and we look forward to seeing you at the September gradings!

Ethan Burleigh – Since Ethan’s comeback at the EKA, his training has been on point. His technique and attitude towards his training have improved massively and it is clear to see. During the summer camp, Ethan was keen to have additional sessions so he could be the best martial artist that he could be. Coming out of the camp, his footwork, defence, confidence, and combinations have all come in leaps and bounds so keep it up, Ethan! Well done.

Adults: Chris Mellor – Chris took on the daunting task of representing the EKA at the latest WKO Tournaments and it is safe to say he did well. Coming away from the world championships with a silver medal against an opponent that weighed a whole 10kg heavier is a testament to Chris’ hard work and training. Receiving 2 low blows (ouch…) in the space of 2 minutes isn’t easy for anyone but getting back up and continuing to finish the fight reflects on how dedicated and committed you are to the sport. Keep your head up Chris, onto the next one!
