Self Defence
For those interested in chatting and sharing ideas with fellow martial artists, I'd just like to bring to your attention a Self Defence Forum that was set up some time ago and has been running steadily for the past couple of years.
It's not the busiest of forums, but that is something I'm kind of proud of - as it most likely means most members have more important things to do in their lives, but there is a wealth of knowledge and information available - so please feel free to pop along and have a browse.
Guest Article

 Tony Terranova

As we are now entering the time for New Year's Resolutions and all of the "get fit quick" schemes start appearing, tempting us into a quick way to throw off those excess pounds in time for our summer holidays, I thought I would share a thread from our forum that my good friend Tony Terranova kindly and generously posted.

An appropriate quote for this time of year goes something like...

"We should not be concerned with what we eat between Christmas and New Year, more concerned with what we eat between New Year and Christmas!"

Al nice one

Firstly, may I take this opportunity to wish you all a Very Happy New Year.

To kick us off for 2011, we have a bumper Newsletter full of exciting special offers, seminar announcements and plenty of ways you can join in the CSP fun without it breaking the bank.
We have some fantastic January Sale offers, some of which we've decided to carry on throughout the rest of the year.

Our Masterclass Seminar Series starts in a little over a month's time and we've had a great amount of interest - which is always very exciting. There are some spaces remaining however, so we've taken the opportunity to highlight the ridiculous group booking discounts and Instructor deals that are still available.

We also kick off the new year with a seminar from our very own instructor, Guro Rick Faye - definitely one not to be missed - so please sign up fast if you want to secure your place.

Instead of a long winded introduction I'll simply point you in the direction of the rest of this newsletter, my latest article, and the host of special offers we have for January and beyond.

Here's to a fantastic 2011, I look forward to sharing lots more news and articles with you as the year progresses.

I'll leave you with a little quote I particularly like...

"Your Merry Christmas may depend on what others do for you. But your Happy New Year depends on what you do for others."

Stay Safe and Have Fun

Happy New Years Eve

Hopefully you are all either planning a chilled night in or a party night out to celebrate the start of 2011 which is going to be a very good but busy year!
Predictions and resolutions are what is on people's mind at the moment and interestingly I googled the top 10 resolutions to find that yes diet and exercise are high up there along with spending time with friends and family and learning something new!
So I am contemplating combining all of those things by starting to take part in Al's classes! Shock horror - the Lou who has no interest in martial arts? Well I did only say contemplating.... however it would help fitness, ensure I spend more time with Al (lol) and combine the new hobby aspect! So, we will see - it can't hurt to give it a go can it?
I will no doubt keep you posted on my decision!
Predictions are slightly more easy - just because they can be wrong as they are only predictions! I am no mystic Meg however I do know that 2011 is going to be a bumper packed year for CSP and that we will be offering lots of things whether that be the Masterclass series, seminars around the UK/World, new products or just lots of good things via these newsletters!
So we look forward to seeing you all in the New Year - virtually or in person!
I also have another prediction and that is slightly related to making resolutions! Colin from our MK class is about to undertake the regime from a man otherwise known as the Juice Master. Listening to Colin and his experience of juicing in the past - I do predict that he too will become an expert in the juicing field and will indeed become a juice guru! So Colin, good luck in your venture - anybody who drinks vegetable juice first thing in the morning deserves to be the weight of a nat! (in my opinion anyhow!)

To round off with a bit of what's been happening news - It's been a hectic few weeks on the social front - obviously there were the Christmas parties that we had to attend (the Red Bull Party was AMAZING!), it was my Birthday (another year older) and the festivities with family on the main day itself but this week we have celebrated Christmas with our students in Coventry and Milton Keynes.
The Coventry party was an all you can eat buffet and the MK party was at our local curry house (the healthy eating will start in the New Year) and it was lovely to meet the loved ones of those that train with us on a regular basis. It was also nice to spend time with people outside of the dojo and dressed something other than shorts, sweaty t-shirts and boxing gloves! We had a wonderful time at both events and thank all that came to celebrate with us.

So to end the Lou's News for 2010 - for me it has been a fantastic year. I have met many wonderful people from around the world and got to know more about martial arts for a non-martial artist than I thought possible!
I became Mrs Peasland which was a wonderful day and have had many fantastic highs - too many to mention. I do know that I am a lucky girl and wish you all the same amount of happiness that I have in my life for 2011.

Happy New Year to you all!

Article...I Add the Weight - You Lift the BarSuper Human Strength 

As a martial arts instructor, it's my job to offer the latest and most current martial arts techniques, with the latest and most effective teaching methods in the most honest way to every one of my students.

It's my job to know when to add more weight to their bar, when to take weight off and when to change the entire exercise so as to continue their progression.

However, the one thing that I cannot do and will not do, is Lift the Bar for Them!

New Year - New StartKarate Respect
As part of our continued drive to bring the best instruction to our CSP students, we have launched a new Dojo Etiquette, amongst other things, to help improve the consistency, quality and effectiveness of our classes.

The aim is to also bring a touch of a "traditional" martial arts theme to the lessons whilst maintaining our relaxed and fun approach to learning the arts.
The dojo etiquette will be distributed to all CSP students in the first classes of 2011
