Written by bryan. Posted in Charity


Fundraising for charity

We hope you will jump, block, kick and punch at the chance to support us in raising money for The Camrose Centre Basingstoke and SHELTER.

The Camrose Centre supports homeless and vulnerably housed people in Basingstoke. The provide breakfast and a cooked meal as well as a place to shelter and access support for two days a week. We want to help them to be able to add another day. For some people the food they are cooked and packs they are given from The Camrose Centre may be the only food they receive. People die on the streets every winter in England and we can help to stop this happening.


Coach Education

Written by bryan. Posted in Blog Posts, Coaching

Sometimes as a coach in any sport it’s easy to feel like a nag, constantly reminding students to ‘bend their knee’ or ‘pull their hand back’ or ‘grip the uniform differently’ or whatever is specific to a particular sport.

The focus of Sunday’s monthly coaching meeting  was how to create effective and fun new ways to develop skills without seeming like we are nagging. Sharing experiences and knowledge of Gymnastics, Judo, Tennis, Karate, Tai Chi, Teaching in academic situations and discussing how we can relate this experience to Andragogy and Pedagogy.
