We held our annual Cadet Leaders Selection Class on Sunday 15th November at Matthew Moss High School in Rochdale. Our Assistant Instructors also trained at the intensive class which lasted an hour and a half. Many cadets leaders have been serving our Instructors and the students of our Club for a few years now and we decided that it was time to reward these dedicated students with a Gold medal.
Cadet Leaders are such a valuable asset to our Instructors, especially our teenagers. They help out in classes so much and act as a fantastic role model for our younger students. Jonathan Longden Sensei, Callum Miles Sensei and Brandon Lee Sensei have all passed through the Cadet Leader – Assistant Instructor – Lead Instructor system and all three now work at the Club, running their own classes with some fab students. We know that this system is tried, tested and works, this is why we have to be so strict with our selections.
Paul Wolstencroft Sensei deliberately made the class very hard work and we will only accept the most promising children on to our Cadet Leader Programme. It is so important that they show great potential, put in maximum effort every time they train and their attendance is second to none.
The class were pushed very hard indeed and it was brilliant to see such a high standard amongst the top children in the Club.
Congratulations to the following Cadet Leaders who received a medal and will now continue their role at one of our classes:
