Artemis BJJ (Impact Gym), Open Mat, Bristol, UK - 27/09/2014
I was re-reading Rachael's blog this morning (the same Rachael who came along to class on Wednesday): her post on nutrition reminded me I should get back into taking fish oil supplements. My fingers have been quite painful recently, as my training has become more regular than usual. So it was a good thing that I did some nogi rolling today, with Gina: she had good pressure and has taken the guard passing tips to heart. Very coachable student, so I look forward to seeing how she does at the upcoming Grapplers Heart tournament. :)
That increased training frequency is going to continue, as I'll be taking on more teaching starting for next week. We're also going to be adding a new location, which is cool. Bristol Sports Centre is continuing as normal (Mondays & Wednesday 19:30-20:30, along with the free women's class on Wednesdays from 18:30-19:30), but there will be some changes over at our East Bristol spot.
For the last couple of months, the second venue has been in Staple Hill. Starting on Thursday 2nd October onwards, it's going to be in Kingswood instead, at PHNX Fitness. That's the new gym run by two of my students, Dean and Freya. Times will be the same as usual, so Tuesdays from 20:00-21:15, Thursdays from 20:15-21:15, then open mat on Saturdays from 10:00-12:00. Here's the address:
Unit 7, Two Mile Hill Commercial Centre,
Two Mile Hill Road,
Bristol, BS15 1AZ
There's a map with the address up on the Artemis BJJ locations page: if you can get to Kingswood (or our existing venue in central Bristol), it would be cool to meet you. First week of training is free, while the women's class on Wednesdays is free until the end of the year! I'm excited at the prospect of possibly starting up a second free women's class over at PHNX, but we'll see how the timetable goes. :D
