We've just finishd a very intensive two-day program, at Prescot.
On Saturday we held the Instructional Enhancement Program for the group of current Potential Instructors.
On Sunday the PIs joined existing instructors for our first dedicated Instructor training get-together.
Guest instructor was my old friend Patrick [Paddy] Phillips.
I'll be posting a ful review, plus photographs later.

Thanks to Den and the man in Black. A wee power house.
Patrick was excellent.

Well done all the boys for a supreme effort on Saturday.

I will be in the future taking up Ice Skating to practice my Pivots.

Another weekend of world class training.
Great presentations from all the PI's; congrats to all of you on becoming instructors.
Yet again we enjoyed (or is that endured?) superhuman efforts and some superb scenarios from Si.
And it was great to see Paddy Phillips sharing some of his extensive knowledge.
Another great job by Den pulling it all together.

But I'm convinced Den only puts on these events so we can go for a Chinese afterwards.
Cheers,
To

Well done the new instructors.........

And well done all of the fighters and helpers and presenters alike who made day 2 so enjoyable.

It was great to see Paddy do his thing.....he is, without doubt, the best in the business.

With that special mix of NLP, combatives, Special First Aid advice........and the great attitude of the involved, it was a heady mix of info and action.

A real honour to be involved.

And for any of you with doubts.............I am under Shackleton's advice for recovery as we speak; those fights were intense!!!!

Great weekend, Den. Looking forward to the pics!!

Cheers guys......its was brilliant to catch up with you all too!

Thanks to Den and all the instructors for this weekend - it's a privilege to have been able to be there.
I gained a lot from every presentation and scenario and can't wait to start adding the new knowledge and ideas to my regular training.
My shoulder's are feeling the benefit of Paddy's advice already (never before has someone made the subject of injury prevention so interesting to me).
As always it was great to spend the weekend training, and then go for a meal with, a group of such experienced, capable, friendly and encouraging people.
Thanks to everyone involved.

Si, hope you're recovering ok... those scenarios were full-on, and we only did a few - you did every one.
Thanks loads for that and also for the presentation you gave on them - really useful stuff.

After performing about fifty fights in the suit, that wasn't enough violence for Si. He texted me later to tell me of a great UFC match he was watching!

Here's the first few photos:

Larry, Peter and Si plotting!

More soon.

That was a truly memorable weekend, the best training experience I have had.

My thanks to everyone there particularly Den, Si and Tony for their presentations and exercises and DaveMc for the support and encouragement he gave to everyone.

The potential Instructors group were brilliant, I really enjoyed their company as well as watching them tackle the physical drills with amazing commitment.

Paddy Phillips was brilliant, I can see why people speak so highly of him.

Once again memorable weekend, wouldn't have missed it.

Thanks again

Thanks guys for another action filled and all inspiring weekend of training. Its always a pleasure training with such a great bunch who share a passion for what they do. I have definitely come away with even more great ways to enhance my own training and also improve my skills in improving the way I deliver Combative methods.
Big thanks to Den, Si, To, Larry, Paddy and Shackleton for the really useful info presented, and of course all of the lads for their hard work and commitment to training.

Looking forward to seeing you all for the International.

My heartiest congratulations to the new instructor cadre. I'm absolutely gutted I wasn't able to get the time off work. See you all at the International.

I'd just like to add my thanks for a great weekend. I have been taking on board all the information that was provided throughout the weekend and thanks to everyone for that, part of which means my shoulders are feeling better (thanks Paddy!)

Thanks for a great experience.
