MSMAS Dojo ~ MSMAS Spirit Training on the beach in November .....

The first was held in 2009... This one at West Wittering Beach !!


This year we met at the beach @ 0700hrs ~ our designated ‘training area’..

Training lasted 3 hours approx. and was NOT ‘discipline specific’, but held in addition to our regular Dojo Training and general fitness Sessions, for our general improvement, right across the disciplines...

For our last Session, the weather was perfect; heavy rain and strong winds, with severe gales followed by cold showers plus winds gusting to 70mph .....

This time a balmy and warm 9 degrees C plus the sea water was over freezing, the wind, 30 knots, so not nearly enough wind chill !

But we still trained despite the ambient conditions...

First a 'warm up', followed then by a short 5 mile run along the beach in preparation for training..

After training, the run back, with more training now before entering the surf !!

Then a good 'warm down' before it is back to the cars, a change back into warm clothes, before hot teas all round...

Can you 'hack it'?

Well, unless you try, you will never know !

>>>> Finally:

A big ‘thank you’ to all those who attended ‘MSMAS 2011 Spirit Training’ at West Wittering, when we were able to ease you in gently with this forerunner to the ‘MSMAS 2012 Spirit Training’ Session planned to be held in the Jan/Feb of next year.

Special thanks to Renshi Bibby & Catherine Sensei, for leading, plus to Irene and Archie for ‘spotting’ with me, ensuring pictures for all to see, plus of course my grateful thanks to Nick, our lifeguard and first aider…

It was good to see existing MSMAS YuDansha, David, Guy, Alex, Sary, Georgie all working well with our incoming MSMAS YuDansha, Andy …

Then our existing MSMAS MuDansha, Luke and Kevin (Sempai) assisting ‘first comers’, Tony, Kevin, Mike, Nick (Sinbad), Celine & Thomas, of course not forgetting Ellie ~ great job girl !!

I now look forward to the ‘Winter’ session at the beginning of next year, that will be hard, plus I hope that the weather conditions will have deteriorated enough by then to be at a satisfactory level for James !!…

Well done to YOU all again !!
