Well done to Kiera-Lee Botfield known as Killer Bee on receiving her Blue Belt. It is a first for our group as Kiera-Lee is the first female getting her blue belt since the inception of Tribal under De Been Bjj Black Belt instructor Andrew Bailey. Kiera-Lee was our first lady who would come to training where she would be the only student in the class when we were starting out. Through her effort and continually applying herself she has paved the way for our other ladies to follow the path as her journey continues. Well done Kiera-Lee.
TRIBAL ROCK AND WATER WORKSHOP.
Our First Tribal Rock and Water workshop held on Sunday 16th April 2018. The workshop was conducted over seven hours where students were required to do a number exercises including improving balance, movement, non verbal communication skills as well as strategies to deal with bullying. The workshop was very demanding on the students both physically and emotionally. The effort by all students was exceptional with the confidence levels improving from each student as the day went on. The workshop will be the first of many we will implement as bullying is a very serious issue which our Tribal group are very passionate about improving awareness and promoting the principles outline in the Rock and Water program.

Our Tribal MMA team were very fortunate to train at Fight Bully Club Australia located on the Gold Coast on 14th October 2017, where world class instructor Sev who is also a Russian Sambo expert and former European K1 champion conducted a training camp for our team for 4 hours teaching sambo skills, leg locks and striking drills. Sev also spoke about weight cutting and appropriate methods to use that are safe and a sensible approach to such an important issue. Our Tribal team were excited to have met Sev and his business partner Ameer and our Tribal family just got bigger. This will be a great on going connection with Sev who is also the head coach of the elite fighting team Fight Bully Club in Bulgaria.
