HOT OFF THE PRESS...!

NEW CLASS IN SOLIHULL NOW OPEN!
Master Laura Drayton opened a second class at Langley School, Solihull on Monday 14th Sepytember at 6.30pm. It got off to a great start and students, past present and new are all welcome to this mixed age and ability class. Just turn up - still £5 per class on a pay as you go basis!
Master Woodiwiss's tournament is on Saturday October 10th!
Chloe Montgomery, from our Rugby classes, proudly showing her certificate from a successful grading - and the trophy for Best Child in the Coventry grading section to boot! Well done, Chloe - great performance!
Leland and Victoria Woodfield proudly displaying their pass certificates from yesterday's grading - very proud of both of them. But there is a third mini Woodfield - Lincoln - who turned up desperately wanting to grade with his brother and sister...he'd been giving his parents earache all morning about it! The only problem is that a few weeks ago, Lincoln was run over and suffered a fractured pelvis and is still on a mini zimmer frame. He wanted to have a go, but I sat him down and explained that, if he fell, he'd be back in hospital and on that frame, or back in bed, for even more time. I told him that I wouldn't let him fall behind and that, as soon as his doctor gave him the all clear, I'd grade him. Took it like a boss and sat and watched quietly while his brother and sister graded. 5 years old - and gets it more than some adults - very, very proud of our Lincoln - and so should you be, Donna Treacle Woodfield and Carl Woodfield...good job done there! x
The ATMA have a team going out to GM Giacobbe's tournament in Blackwood, New Jersey in November! We've been fundraising to support the event and its getting close now!
It's all about the smiles!
Whatever you train in, it's vital that you enjoy it. Sure, there will be times when your resolve is tested, but you should always leave a session feeling upbeat and better about yourself!
Squad training, Saturday 3rd October
Next Squad training is Saturday 3rd October at Nuffiekd, Nuneaton, 3-5pm. If you're going to Manchester, get in there!

I'm hearing about folk moaning about how long grading takes - this process is not just about you. It's about so much more than your child getting a certificate. It's about them learning to work for reward - and to wait for that reward. It's about them supporting their team mates and celebrating in the success of others and helping those who are struggling. It's about selflessness, giving as well as taking, failure and success in the same breath. It's a lesson in tenacity and self-discipline - did you not notice how your child sat still and behaved perfectly, watching while others were being tested? Watching the grading is a privilege - something many associations do not permit - and you don't have to be there. Drop them off and go do something for a couple of hours - but how much more important is it for your child to see your supporting them...and not moaning about it? Think on....
