June 30, 2016

[Updated with video] In April of this year, the Bermuda Sanshou Association [BSA] commenced “Sanda Pandas,” a Chinese Kickboxing program for children aged 5-12 at Lotus on Victoria Street and today [June 30] participants in the program received certificates at the final Sanda Pandas class for the Spring Term.

The classes were held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4.30 to 5.30pm, and taught by current Pan American Wushu Champion and World Sanda Cup silver medalist Sentwali Woolridge.

Coach Sentwali Woolridge said, “We just completed the first term of the basic Sanda course. The course went well, the children are really excited about it and we’re advancing on. We have a summer program coming up and hopefully will have more children attending.

“We are very pleased with the turnout and the response that we have had, and we’re hoping to improve and look forward to the future.

“The summer program is being held in the same location and it starts the first Tuesday of July. Parents can reach me at 537-1305 or they can go on Facebook and look up Bermuda Sanshou Association and leave a message, and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.”

Participants included Kiemori Thorpe, Elijah Stevens, Kennicko Jones-Russell, Kaden Cameron, Gregory Talbot, Yu’udai Trott-Hayward, Keimori Thorpe, Khamil Burchall, Jaylani Woolridge, Shaela Bailey, Zion Williams, Anaya Clark and Hamell ‘AJ’ Anderson.

    Well done BSA! You guys have come a long way and have shown your dedication to the community by promoting the martial arts positively and respectfully. Hats off to you guys!!

    Let’s see this in schools as a gym program. This could be an answer to curbing the desire for kids to get involved in senseless negative behavior.
