Stroke has a new indicator They say if you e-mail this to ten people, you stand a chance of saving one life. Will you send this along? Blood Clots/Stroke- They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue.

I will continue to forward this every time it comes around!
STROKE: Remember the 1st Three Letters..... S.. T. R.
During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) ...she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.
They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening.
Jane's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00 PMJane passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. Some don't die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.
It only takes a minute to read this.

A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke...totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.

Thank God for the sense to remember the '3' steps, STR. Read and Learn!
Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.
Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:
S *Ask the individual to SMILE.
T *
Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A
(I.e. It is sunny out today.)

*Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS

If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

New Sign of a Stroke --------
Stick out Your Tongue
NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out his tongue. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.
A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved.

I have done my part. Will you?

Warriors Club Champs

On Sat 21st of Jan the Warriors Grappling Academy held there club champs which was held at Swale martial Arts Club East Street Sittingbourne. Participation in Adult grappling is on the increase at the Warriors with Judo/Sombo on a Tuesday and MMA on a Wednesday having nearly maximum numbers on the mat we may have to extend to another night. The competition was divided into 3 different disciplines Judo, Sambo and MMA with some very experience international players taking part it was going to be a hard fought tournament. MMA was a new section as this was only started in January 2011 and has been a great success with Paul Clarke competiting who is an experience Cage fighter.
In the Judo comp everyone was hoping not to get the young Jedi 18 year old  Jamie Marzetti and unlucky for Danny Carrott and Paul Clarke they did and the out come for them was a loss and the first time Jamie had beaten his team mate Danny. In the other pool Ashley Costa over come Andy smith and Reece Enfold from Folkestone to meet the young Jedi in the finals. It was a very close fight and both fighter going for it with lots of attacks and plenty of twist and turns but the old man of judo came through and put the young Jedi well in his place with an Ippon, good result for the  31 year old

There was only 2 women entered and they fought it out to see who was best and after Debbie Jackson had come back to full training she looked very sharp and was just to good for Kerry Penfold from Folkestone.
