Over 35 enthusiasts gathered at John Skillen's superb training facility in Loughborough for the latest combatives training event.



We started with a PowerPoint overview of Counter-grappling concepts, then warmed up with Si,before going into some specific areas of combatives conditioning.
Next was the main topic of the day, the applied counter-grapling work. This included a module by Si Squires on dealing with takedowns, and cconfronting the skilled assailant.
After a Q&A session we held a book signing, then adjourned to a local Chinese buffet for the traditional post training scoff.

Great group of guys, and a very enjoyable day.
More photos and details to follow.

Sorry to have missed the session - I was in no fit state to drive let alone train yesterday. I'm going to have to visit Liverpool at some point soon.

Alban, sorry you couldn't make it.....looking forward to seeing you at a future event.
Slacky, perhaps you can make it to the Gutterfighters Christmas Training session. It will be good to see you again.
Some more pics from the training...
