Thanksgiving Week at Magnus!
The dojo has been busy with classes and workshops before the Thanksgiving holiday. We had our monthly grappling classes for our 7+ students and brown/black belt students. Our leadership team also had their monthly support coaching workshop where we focused on helping our young leaders better coach students in protection practice during regular class time. It was by far our best support coaching workshop of this Leadership Team season.
We also had the privilege of hosting Dr. Becky Quintangeli from The Movement Paradigm in the dojo for a workshop. Some of our Magnus moms joined her for a pelvic floor workshop that was filled with tons of useful information and exercises to support pelvic floor health. We always enjoy having our friends from The Movement Paradigm in the dojo for a workshop! Offering movement based workshops for our Magnus parents and adult population are one of our favorite dojo pop-up opportunities!
Sensei also had the opportunity to travel to Illinois before the holiday to study with his teacher Dr. Tony D’Angelo. During his visits Sensei has the opportunity to train both privately and with fellow members of the Shobayashi Kan when they’re in also in town. He always returns home with a brain full of new martial information and an excitement to get back into the dojo to teach!
