Training in the Cotswalds
Tony Terranova - the best surname in Cheltenham; is a friend of mine.
he is also a long time student and close friend of Geoff Thompsons. I arrived in the beautiful Cotswalds yesterday - and immediately hit Tony's garage (nicknamed 'the church') where I took Tony and his two partners Alan and MArk, through some private training. Tony is an engineer by trade, as is evidenced by the huge swag of amazing specialised equipment that has designed for 'worship' in the church.
After our session, we had a quick bite then headed off to the school (Fighting Fit Martial Arts .
The group was a pure joy to teach. Tony has created a wonderful culture in his school. We also had a few visitors from Coventry (a couple of Geoff T's long time students - Alan Peasland and Mick Tully - absolute gentlemen and well disguised hard-bastards) as well as Rich Yeoman, owner of the first school I ever taught at in Coventry. Thanks for making the trip guys.
A few hours sleep followed the seminar, up early, and off for a great walk in the wilds of the Cotswalds before being picked up by Mark for the drive up to Manchester - where I will have a quick bite with legendary Thai trainer, Master Sken, before hitting the BJJ mat with Adam Adshead this evening.
The beat goes on!
