Thin Line Martial Arts (TLMA) really pulled through with their sponsorship of Haven Jiu Jitsu’s law enforcement officers (LEO) this month. We were able to raise $120 through sales of TLMA gear. All of the profits made at Haven Jiu Jitsu TLMA sales will continue to be distributed to our LEOs via the LEO membership program.
Jeff Hull, owner of TLMA, is doing great things for the CNY Community! Eventually, all Haven Jiu Jitsu affiliates will be representing the TLMA gear at their gyms.
Unfortunately, we were forced to have conversations with our members about ringworm this week. We take every precaution to prevent this highly contagious fungal infection. However, it seems to have reared its ugly head. Because some of our members cross train and we have visitors from other gyms, it is difficult to prevent. All visitors and members who cross train will be spot checked every class to prevent them from bringing in ringworm from outside sources.
If you get ringworm, please make sure you are treating it with an over the counter or prescription anti-fungal – not bleach. This is an old school recommendation and causes chemical burns to the skin. In addition, the infection can survive underneath the bleached skin. Although ringworm is common among gyms, it is preventable through immediate showering after training and early detection/treatment.
This week, at Haven Jiu Jitsu, we covered:
- Ezekiel and Arm triangle from mount
- If our partners defend the back, we use that defense to ride back up to mount and attack again.
- Traditional side control escapes without an underhook
Keep up the great work everyone and don’t forget about our Halloween at Haven celebration on Friday October 29, at 6pm. Hope to see everyone there.
