NavanTKD had a great class on Thursday 9th February when Judo 3rd Dan, Robbie Brennan, paid us a visit. Robbie has over thirty years in Martial Arts and has competed internationally as a junior, senior and now as a master.

There is so much variety in the world of martial arts, that there is lots we can learn from other styles. Judo is an Olympic sport, renowned for its throws and locks. Robbie took the combined class of juniors and seniors from beginner to 2nd degree black belts through an introductory class.

He focussed on a warmup to loosen out the body for the techniques he was covering later in the class and then covered rolls, breakfalls and basic grappling. The lower grades stayed doing some wrestling drills while Robbie took the higher grades through some locking and choking exercises. 

It was a great opportunity to see some of the skills of other martial arts and we hope to get Robbie back for another class in a few months. A big thank you to Robbie for making the trip to our club.
