We’ve had a GREAT first week back. Thank you to everyone who has trained so far.
It was fantastic to see you all looking well rested and enthusiastic for the year ahead.
Keep up the amazing work. Super-fit Sunday a huge success so Paul Sensei has decided to do it again on Sunday 24th January 11am-12pm. Thank you to everyone who took part. This will be available to book via the APP and is open to all. You do not have to wear your gi or even do karate! Parents and brothers and sisters are more than welcome to get involved. It will comprise of strength, endurance and conditioning exercises regularly practised by Paul Sensei.
ZOOM Kyu Grading on Sunday 7th February
You are now able to book your places at the Kyu Grading which will take place on ZOOM on Sunday 7th February. Places are limited and will run out in the next week or two. If you are due for grading but not sure if you’re ready, it’s a good idea to have a quick chat with your Sensei and book sooner rather than later.
For those waiting for a Dan grading: Instructors need at least 4 weeks in the dojo with the Shodan and Nidan candidates before they would realistically be able to take the test. This time would be used to adjust stances,check over Katas/Combinations and increase reaction speed for the kumite drills. For example; if we are lucky enough to return to the dojo’s in mid Feb, I will arrange the grading for mid-March. We WILL get this done. It is a priority.
Karate Uniforms, Licenses and Merchandise
The online shop has now been updated with the all latest Karate uniforms from Adidas. We have you covered for all of your training and equipment needs. All uniforms will be posted out to your home address and include club badges. There is no need to order a badge separately.
We’ve had plenty of license renewals in so thank you very much to those who have renewed. All have been processed and posted out this morning already! If you cannot find your license please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org and we can let you know when you are due to renew.
We are also working on a new Club jacket. This will be available to order and personalise in the next few weeks.
