The Boot Camp for me was incredible - despite the hard work and long days, the atmosphere was electric and kept me buzzing for the whole weekend! There was always something to look forward to from perfecting our "bread and butter" techniques to learning brand new throws, combinations and take downs. I have the World Championships coming up in November this year, and I feel like the weekend has taught me how to adapt and use my newly increased repertoire more effectively. I feel like my judgement, timing and tactics have improved ten fold and I'm looking forward to putting everything into practice before the Worlds.
