Many many years ago, when i was first dating the ex that predates the ex husband (so about 7 or 8 years ago) I had about 8 months of wrestling training. Two of the guys from back then (Jag & Ben) kept the club going and now they have awesome british wrestler Robbie Brookside training the class.
Jag works in the same department as me at my day job, which I dicovered when another colleague came bouncing into the office shouting ‘I met someone who used to wrestle you’! Since then it’s been at the back of my mind and this weekend i finally took the plunge.
So here I am, I spent four hours in the worlds coldest hall (seriously some of the windows had holes stuffed with paper) and much of that was watching because there is only so much room on the mats. I got some training though and while it’s not al coming back to me instantly i’m doing ok picking stuff up. I had fun and Brookside is a great coach. I think this is going to be fun.
For interested parties its www.wrestleicester.com and while I won’t be going every weekend due to other commitments, I will be going at least once a month, maybe more.
The class takes place at the Urban Martial Arts Centre in Leicester which is run by Gok Wan’s brother, true fact.
