NYP Friendly Match with TP on 26 Jan 10

On 26 Jan, Tues, NYP is honoured to have TP at their homeground for a friendly match.
In this game, there is no loser, only winners, because everyone went home with a prize - a steep learning curve. An experience that gains friendship and exposure.
Brian Sir giving tips and little rules for friendly match.
Head kicks - yes, but controlled impact

TP warming up - very neat & disciplined!

Edgar vs Joshua - very serious, but having fun

Clement vs ZhiHao - Up, down, up, down, pretty fast!

(2) Push, balance, and over

Everyone is helping to lay the mat

One, two, three!

Joshua vs Edgar, with Brian Sir looking on.

Tyler vs Jet, and the winner is.......Tyler!

Hit and Blocked!

Now, the rest...
Bigger target for bigger students

I-Lok giving her best in getting Serene down!

Conference, conference...

Go, go, go!

Agility Human blockers -
one half of the group stand as a block on the mat, while the other half dodge in and out

Intermediate stage - blockers move at the commands of Brian Sir

Advanced stage - Blockers move at their own speed
I am sure all of you will look forward to the next post grading fun. Meanwhile, we have lots of activities coming up in the new year. Stay tuned!
