Nottingham didn't quite know what hit it last Saturday 16th February, when four of our instructors descended on the British National Championships (the 'Oscars' of competitive martial arts in the UK). James Guerrero, Joshua Rees Ivey, Gibson Ariza and Volodymyr Havdyda mopped up 2 Silver and 2 Bronze medals between them. What's more, because of their impact and achievements (this was their first ever major competition), they've each received letters of invitation to the British Team squad training sessions.
Niedō's pedigree comes from a long line of British, European and World Champions, and although we don’t insist on externally competitive fighting as part of our standard curriculum, it can sometimes be important for individuals to prove themselves against their peers, especially instructors. In those circumstances, Niedō will fully support and encourage them, as we know you will. Congratulations to Gibson, Joshua, James and 'Vlad'. It's stimulating to be reminded that you're being trained by champions.
