Our Nats - what are they all about?
This year , we kept the entry price down - we offered better prize/sponsorship packs, and made Rigan Machado's seminar available and affordable for everyone. I also organized (with the wonderful help of some good friends) a business/school-owners seminar on Sunday, so that we can all move forward with the business as well as the technical aspects of martial arts. This was a huge success - this morning (the day after) i have already received half a dozen e-mails from various school owners, informing me that this was a highlight for them. Awesome.
Our event, apart from being a serious competition, differs from any other event I have ever seen, in that it is a social event as well. Everyone leaves the mat hugging and slapping each other on the back. there is absolutely no bad behaviour, bad sportsmanship or bad feeling. The atmosphere is one of a family get-together. With more than a dozen Will-Machado Black Belts in attendance, this was one very spoecial occasion. next year will be bette again - more treats are in store.
