Six days in Aotearoa!
After doing my usual round of work and training with the BJJ afficionadoes, I did a day and a half work at the Wellington police College - with the defensive tactics staff and a few visiting operators from the Dip protection Squad. We accomplished a lot before I had to sprint to the Mt Victoria Kyokushin Dojo for a couple of hours of reality-based training; finally finishing off with a two hour session for my good friend Geoff Grant on the same mat.
That was one long day! Virtually no sleep and then i hit the airport at 4am for the flight back to OZ (yesterday).
So now it's time for some R&R with my family in Fiji - we are just about to leave for the airport; so I thought to get on the blog and let you know i won't be around for just over a week.
Thanks again to all the New Zealand crew - Geoff and Leonie Aitken, Ken Dunstan, Glen tarrant, Mike Fooks (new blue - congrats!), Karl Norton and all of Mike Gent's students, Ian and Paula Waite, Shayne Cox (thanks Sue), Mark humphries, Garreth Reynolds, Chris and Jill Gower - and Geoff Grant (leave my Carb gel alone!)
I look forward to seeing everyone again in August.
best wishes and safe training.
