My Story – Hanshi Ellis
The teaching and coaching staff of Sakura Ryu are always forward planning for future gradings for students. To achieve nomination for a grading, all the students must attend training on a regular basis. Regular and consistent training is the best way to get and stay fit, and learn and master essential Jujitsu techniques.
For our Junior students, we require that the parents do their best to ensure we are able to predict when the child will attend. So please set a routine in your attendance, if you have not been already doing so. And please advise us any time that this is to vary.
We also have the same expectation for our Senior students. Set a consistent routine to attend training, and stick to it. When you do not show up, other students may not have someone to train with. As we approach senior gradings, it is expected that you also attend Sunday Training sessions where you will not only receive essential fitness training to allow you endure a grading day, but also intensive learning in those areas of technique where you most need it.
