Lesson Changes

During March we hit record numbers firstly starting at 20 and then rising to 22. Due to the varied ages and grades we have now made the following changes to the lessons.

Tuesdays

Little Tigers – 6pm – 7pm 5-10 years (lower grades)
11 years + inc advanced 5-10 years grades 7pm – 8pm

Sundays

All Grades – 6pm – 7:30pm.

This allows us to focus more on students needs and allows more room to continue growing.

As everyone will now know on the 26th January 2014 Nathan Haywood passed his 1st Dan and has become the first student I have graded to the rank of Black Belt.

I am so proud to have passed Nathan his Black Belt and he has earned this rank with a lot of hard work. Nathan joined me in 2007 from another club at the grade of Green belt and has always had the potential to be a great Black Belt.

Venue Change

In January 2014 we moved from Belmont Community Centre to the Freeschool due to the class increasing in size. This change has been good and with more space and equipment available the lessons have been more varied.
