New beginnings March 2, 2008

Yesterday March the 1st marked the herald of some new beginnings, which I’ve deemed blog worthy.NEWS

The first was the successful opening session of Factory BJJ.

After the closure of the BJJ/Wrestling program at our now old gym, we as a collective decided to continue our training under a new name and at a new venue.

With only a short period of time to get things set up, yesterday we finally made it and with only 12 hours downtime between clubs, I think we did alright.

We sold all the t-shirts we had made, we got a really good turnout and made enough money to cover almost the whole of the months clubs costs.

So thanks again to everyone involved for participating, helping out and being so positive and supportive.

The second item of news is that this blog has now officially dropped the wordpress from its address. From now on the blog can now be found at ConceptualBJJ.com although I will still be using the excellent wordpress engine.

So if you have the old address – ConceptualBJJ.wordpress.com in any blogrolls or links, if you could update them by dropping the wordpress, It would be highly appreciated.

The old address will still and always direct to the blog but in terms of professionalism, I’d prefer if you could use the new address.

Thanks guys, expect a full write up with pictures of our first session when I get the pictures during the week, so till then –

Take care and keep working hard.

Congratulations on the new gym! Hope all goes well. Here’s to a long and healthy run of the Factory!

Take care and train hard.

Thanks a lot Patrick! πŸ™‚ It’s as equally exciting as it is scary, but I’m really looking forward to seeing how things develop.

Take it easy. πŸ™‚

Awesome stuff, well done! πŸ™‚

I’m sorry if I missed it somewhere, but is this “your” gym? Or a kind of collective endeavour? Either way, congrats!

6. Adam Adshead - March 18, 2008

It’s kind of both.

I’ve been the main person in setting up, running everything and I also coach but there are others helping and another coach on board.

So a collective endeavour of sorts with group decesions etc but I’m kinda the first amongst equals. (Primus inter pares)

Thanks for the congrats! πŸ™‚

Fantastic! I dream about the day I can set up my own place. Once I have the skill and the experience.

To have things just the way I want, and to train and teach in the way I envision… it will be great fun.

8. Adam Adshead - March 18, 2008

It is fun but also scary in equal measures.

After the closure of the BJJ program at our gym it was just a natural progression and so far its been going really well.

Its kind of a work in progress at the moment but we’re getting there.

I’m sure one day you’ll have your own place, stick at it and keep dreaming.
