Congratulations to those that recently graded to 8th kyu. I am sure that they will agree that they had to put some hard work in on the day to be awarded a pass mark.It is always pleasing when you see the graders come away with a good sweat on and they know themselves that the belt has been earned and not just awarded.

For those that qualify, the club grading will take place on Saturday the 28th of November at Sporting Edge. You are reminded that it is your responsibility to make sure you have applied for your licence in good time… no licence, no grading. If in doubt see myself in club asap.
Please check out the new photos from the July Grading. For those of you who did not grade, your time is getting close and I will be looking at getting a grading done once everyone is back off Holidays and at School

Sensei James “Jim” Bentham will be holding a summer course on the 28th July. I encourage all the children to attend and get to meet other people / children from various clubs whilst training. Those that have trained with Sensei Jim before will know that he is very knowledgeable and puts the teaching across very well, there will also be prizes/awards on the day. The course is for two hours and the cost is only £10, if you are interested please contact Sensei Jim (email at bottom of poster) or myself asap to book your place, if enough people book onto the course he may look at putting more on throughout the six week holiday.
Congratulations to Cory on achieving his Orange Belt. This was highly deserved and all in attendance would agree that Cory had to put a “shift” in to pass the grade. He attained a very good pass and it was a pleasure to award the grade, he always works hard in class and turns up twice, sometimes three times a week. Well Done, again, Cory
It is also with great pleasure I announce that he has also passed his Army Assessment days (which were just before grading by the way) and he will be leaving us to join the Army College in September. I am sure, like me, you will all wish him well for the future, he will be staying with the club until he joins the Army and I hope that he will continue to visit us all during his leave periods.
Hello to you all, the Website is coming along nicely thanks to Chris Denny at Cristelin Design.
I will be starting to use the website as it progresses and I get used to the new fandangled technology.
Please all be reminded that the club grading (for those that are grading) is on the 11th of July, I will give the various times out in club. It is almost time for the school summer holidays and again I will update in club of the times that we are closed.
