After a December break, Heinrich Carstens (16) is again hard at work, striving to complete the Seal WOD training programme. In week 5 on day one he completed the following in just 40 minutes:
10 tricep push ups
10 regular push ups
10 wide grip push ups
7 sit ups
7 reverse crunches
7 half situps
All of the above in one 2 minute set x 20 sets.
Hooya! Well done Heinrich.
One of our dedicated young JSSA warriors, Johanne Meyer (under 12) recently became the West Rand D2 Schools District Champion and then went on to win her Gauteng colours, running a new personal best in the 1200m. Well done Johanne!
Heinrich Carstens, a grade 10 pupil at Noordheuwel Hoërskool was part of a four-person team that recently came third at the SA Schools Adventure Racing Championships. The race was a gruelling event in the beautiful but mountainous Magoebaskloof area involving a total of 60km cycling and 20km running, rafting, pushcarts and orienteering. The day of the event dawned minus the warm weather that the Lowveld is known for. It was rainy, misty and icy cold and tough muddy conditions tested participants both physically and mentally.
“Completing the race was one of the hardest things I have ever done”, said Heinrich “my warrior training at JSSA paid off, giving me the physical fitness and mental strength to endure and finish the race”.
On 4 October JSSA hosted another self-defense boot camp. “Changing your mind-set from defensive to offensive defense and understanding how to use your attacker’s energy against him is crucial in a self-defense situation” says Pierre Assor, owner of JSSA.
South Africans live in a violent society where cultivating the skills to defend yourself in a dangerous situation is an essential life skill. JSSA aims to teach clients basic hand to hand combat skills to empower them in an attack situation.
Self defense boot camps are held every first Saturday of the month.
