Welcoming the New Year for All Students and Future Students of GB Pymble
Dear Parents and Students,
As 2017 draws to a close and we anticipate the arrival of the new year, I would like to thank you all for your support and dedication to your own and/or child's training and development not only in the martial arts but as a whole person.
We are now an established premium academy for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu on the North Shore and are looking to grow our programs and in 2018, introduce a GB Pymble Competition team led by Fletcher Davidson for both our Kids and Adults. This Team will be a feeder team into our National Ambassador Program. We will make the formal announcements and add a Competition team training day on sundays in the new year.
We will continue to run Yoga and other programs for our students and their families as getting fit and healthy should be on everyones new years resolution list.
I started my Jiu Jitsu journey in 2012 with my two children. At that time I was 120 KG, with a waist of 47 inches, my physician advised me to do something fast or risk the irreversible effects of a poor diet and no exercise. Yes, I had let myself go for a variety of reasons, work, and life got in the way. I had left my discipline and years of practicing Judo and Karate and could not walk up a hill without breathing hard.
in 2013, I made a commitment to regain health and fitness and bring balance back into my life. Today, I am a shadow of my former self, healthy and most importantly, I enjoy passing on what I have learned to others both young and old.
The Coaching team has matured and we are fortunate to have Dr. Vincent Pang join us from the UK in the new year. Professor Vincent trained with one of Gracie Barra's best, Professor Victor Estima and received his black belt from him in February 2017.
We will be back in force on the 3rd January 2018. Please do check out our new website at www.gbpymble.com.au and if you have the time, leave us some feedback so others can enjoy the fruits of our community.
Have a safe and joyous 2018
Director GB Pymble
May of us make promises to ourselves at the begining of every year, many of these promises fall prey to the business of life and other commitments. Make 2018 different and adopt a growth mideset, spend time developing and learning about yourself and come and join us.
It is not hard to adopt a growth mindset, all you have to do is take the first step and target some of your personal challenges, apply relentlessness, dont reel from setbacks and open your mind and spirit ( and your ears) to learn from others. Make 2018 a memorable year and tackle those big audacious dreams, whether it be getting fit, flexible, spedning more time with the family or excelling at something new, nothing is impossible.
Yoga designed specifically for Jiu Jitsu practitioners and anyone looking to develop core strenght, flexibility and suppleness.
For all our members and their families and loved ones. Everyone is welcome for this hour of Yoga designed for people wo practice combat sports
