Thanks Guys it was good to meet up and renew some old friendships. I hope you all got something out of our time together. Looks like I will have to come down next week to sort out the accidental purchase I made this time :lol: . So if you want to do some more of the same I'll be more than happy :D.
I am also a convert to Balors Brew, damn its tasty. Very different to anything I've tasted before.
A great day, cheers guys
Paul.

Thanks again for coming up - it was good to see a different way of doing things.
Its a pity that it wasnt one of the inputs into the train the trainer thing, but heh you cant have everything.

Certainly, it was different to the normal training regime we do (I am reluctant to say better, but certainly different). Definitely more structured.

Food for thought in any case. I need to talk to the other guys who train regularly in Ballymun to determine whether they are "into" this type of training or not. I think that there was a mixed reaction. If not, well we need to think about some alternative approach.

Anyway, a great session. And I hope that you enjoy your new bike (if that word is sufficient to describe the modified beast that you bought)

Yes I got that and am not suprised, its not for everybody and it was never the idea that I would be coming to you on a regular basis, its just that I have to see Pete anyway :) so as I would be there if anyone wanted to build on what we started all well and good, if not fine. I expect on average only one or two people from any given group would want to commit to training in that way. Its taken over a year to get my group to the point of having regular people who get what we are about and have commited for the long haul. As for the train the trainer I assume (hope) that that will be an ongoing thing and that I will come along to another one further down the line. The fact that you think it has some relavence is encouraging. Anyway thanks for the invite, thanks for the effort you put in, thanks for the bbq and thanks for the Balors brew :D

Hi! I'm totally new to this forum, so pardon my ignorance! I live near Ballymun, are there any sort of reenactment/battlegroups around the area? I've years of martial arts experience and would really like to give this a go. Cheers!

We had a good session on Sunday, great to see so many bodies up there! We must have had about 25 or 30 people there yesterday. Shame I'd to split early, but at least I got some exercise, and some videos too...

As these were posted in the Guild forum I have taken the liberty of sending an email to Brendan with a couple of comments. I would also like to point out these are not videos of EHCG training :D
