    Swank. It's probably going to be for training up Olympians for 2012. It's not too far from where I am to Dartford, might be worth dropping by in the future.

    I'm in Orpington and help coach a no gi grappling class over in Crayford Sunday evenings for Fei Lung M.A.S., if you ever feel inclined to drop by don't be a stranger.

    I usually travel up London for training but with the whole bombing related racial tension and bag checks going on currently I've not been going (last time I went I was asked to open my bag 7 times, 5 on the way to my club and 2 on the way back) so this class is going to help me stay sharp until the situation has died down. Dartford's not too far and I'm less likely to get hassled travelling over there so I'd like to check this new place out simply because there are few well equipped martial arts places around here. Although saying that, Keddles Kickboxing gym is round the corner from me and they are top class as a MT gym so I guess it's tit for tat.

    im starting up privates at keddles.
    i figure one private a week in mt should be enough to keep me ticking over in my standup game.
    i was thinking of doing the london thing but i prefer to just drive over the dartford crossingas its less hassle and i really enjoy training at the barra as marc walder is fucking excellent. im slowly dropping the bob breen jkd training out as even though dave my instructor is a legend the whole sticking fighting philipino martial art thing isnt for me.
    have you heard about the freestyle wrestling class at crystal palace that is on a tuesday and friday night?
    im going there this tuesday to give it a try.

    Not heard of that at Crystal Palace. I'm aware of classes in Bromley and London Bridge on Friday evenings and Saturday mornings respectively but not heard about any at Crystal Palace.

    There's another guy that goes to Walder's classes who also goes to Keddles. Walder is top notch from what I have heard and what little I have seen of him. Keddles is a qwell kitted out but somewhat small gym and I've went to a few classes there in the past, may go more regularly in the future, depends on finances really. I go round there to pick up gear now and then although sometimes the mark up is not worth it and I order online instead. You can't really go wrong with Keiran Keddle giving you private classes.

    Bollocks. It's a bit out of the way now. I only went infrequently but still... bugger. Guess I may have to start using the 358 bus.
