A review of the latest online PUMA squad training session. We had a huge attendance to mark Mr Pixton's final session as a coach.
By Alex Gardner. 4th kup from Nettlebed & Watlington PUMA Taekwon-Do.
I have been attending online Squad Training during lockdown and have found the sessions useful to my training and great fun! The session this week was no exception and I think it is great opportunity to learn from some of the best instructors in PUMA and I thoroughly recommend it to anyone above yellow belt. Each class is different and you learn different things from each one you do. I enjoyed the technical patterns session with Mrs Swain and working on sparring footwork with Mr Pixton. Stretching in the final session was a bit tough but I’m sure it will be useful too! Squad sessions are great fun and push you out of your comfort zone! I believe everyone should give it a go at least once. Alex Gardner
Added by Mr Swain: The PUMA Squad session on 21st March was unfortunately the final session with Mr Pixton as a coach. The turn out was a testament to the impact Mr Pixton has had on so many people throughout his competition and coaching career! The session finished with a short montage of photo’s Mr Lammin had put together celebrating Mr Pixtons journey through competitions and wider Taekwon-Do events. This combined with Mr Pixton’s parting words left everyone feeling quite emotional! His absence will definitely be felt for some time, however the coaching team is still in a strong position with Mr Lammin at the helm supported by both Mr and Mrs Swain.
