We had an awesome time at the Community Roll this month! For those who aren't familiar, a community roll is when a bunch of different Jiu Jitsu schools get together and spar. It allows you to go with a whole bunch of different people and practice your skills with new partners. Overall, it's an amazing gathering of martial artists who have a mutual love and respect for the art. I can't wait to do it again!

In and outside of Japan, many students who practicee traditional Japanese martial arts observe this custom of rededication and spirit.
Hatsu Geiko (also known as Kagami Biraki) is a way to jump start the new year. Hatsu Geiko is the first performance of the new year, and it sets the tone for the remainder of the year in your chosen art .So not only is it applicable to any martial art, but also any hobby or craft you may do. Martial artists fill the dojo and train their hardest, with classes often lasting one or two hours longer than normal. Whaaaat?? Ouch. I don’t always feel like I’m gonna make our normal training night (especially when it’s a Judo night lol)
I love this idea! Maybe not in a “New Year Resolution” kind of way, but training your hardest every time you enter the dojo and then living up to that the next time you set foot on the mats. Each day is a brand new start, so we should bring that same spirit of renewal to each and every class.
Do you have a training goal for the new year?
We will be having a winter break for our instructors and students to take time to focus on family this holiday season.
Last day day of classes will be Friday December 22nd. We will reopen Tuesday January 2nd.
Some adult classes may still meet. Check in with your individual instructors to see.
We hope everyone has a wonderful holiday!
RPMA Holiday Party
Friday, January 5th
Bring a dish to pass! Family, friends, adults, and kiddos all welcome!
We were super excited to be a part of Rage in the Cage 2, an amateur MMA event here in Rochester. Brennan Strimple helped to corner Jarrett McBride in his match and worked with him prior to the MMA fight.
Overall I was impressed with what I saw. The fighters truly are athletes and it was obvious that they trained and worked hard in preparation. Even making weight is a difficult process for this kind of fight- not to mention all the striking and grappling training needed to perform your best. I was especially impressed with the women fighters. Their technique - especially the striking - was amazing to watch.
I even thought the event itself was well run. Full Contact Promotions took care to showcase each fighter. Everyone got to have their walk of honor through the fog and lights as their name and credentials were announced. There were professional medical personnel on hand, though I didn't see any serious injuries.
Jarrett McBride won his match! I was very happy to be a part of his training and to be able to see him fight.
We will be closed for Thanksgiving November 23rd, 24th, and 25th.
Classes will resume Monday the 27th.
Have a wonderful holiday with friends and family!
When Sensei Leigh and Sensei Brennan aren't training, we're keeping you updated on the happenings here at Rochester Phoenix Martial Arts!
