For our next training camp, all-round American grappler Kendall Reusing will be bringing her expert knowledge to Glasgow for three days and over 10hrs of training showcasing all her favourite techniques.
The Polaris women open weight champ and ADCC trials winner has been an active competitor since her early days, directing her energies towards freestyle wresting as a teen and becoming a 4x USA Wrestling National Champion before moving back to focus on BJJ and earning her black belt in 2019.
With multiple titles to her name under both disciplines and a variety of rulesets, including golds at black belt adult nogi worlds in 2019 and nogi pans in 2021, Kendall has made a name for herself with her dynamic style and the ability to set the pace of her matches and we can’t wait for her to bring her game to Scotland!
The training camp, Kendall’s first in europe, will take place at our academy in Rutherglen in the Greater Glasgow area (G73 2HZ) between Friday 23rd and Sunday 25th of September.
Friday evening 18:30-20:30 will focus on a takedown session, taking advantage of Kendall’s background and years of experience as a freestyle wrestler, with Saturday and Sunday each featuring 2x taught sessions covering different topics at 10:00-12:00 and 13:30-15:30, with time for Q&A and rolling at the end of each day. Saturday’s sessions will be nogi and and Sunday’s sessions will be in the gi.
The full camp with all five sessions and 10+ hours of training is open to all levels and affiliations, early bird tickets will cost £150, with the cost of the camp rising to £170 after the first 15 tickets sold.
The infrared sauna at the gym will also be switched on and ready to use by 15:30 on Saturday and Sunday and will be open to seminar participants. If planning on using the sauna please bring a bathing suit, towel, flip flops and a change of clothes and make sure to shower before using the sauna.
As a contact sport we also ask both members and visitors to try do regular lateral flow tests to be on the safe side – we have students who are immunocompromised, or who are carers, and so we are taking care to minimise risks where reasonable though we appreciate they are getting hard to come by so if possible please test before coming along. If you have any symptoms please stay home and we’ll refund the camp.
