Summer Break


Our summer break is coming up in a couple of weeks, so a couple of quick reminders before then…


I’m planning on being pretty much off-grid during that time for some much needed R&R, so likely won’t be responding to any emails or messages until the 29th.

Adults Training Session – Tuesday 29th

As always on a bank holiday week, we’ll not be in on the monday, but will have an extra open training session for the adults on Tuesday from 8-9pm after the kids classes.

Junior Black Belt Applications

Please remember, the absolute deadline for applications is Thu 31st, and late applications will not be accepted. If you miss that deadline, you’ll have to wait for the next grading so please don’t leave them to the last minute.

Remember, all goals etc must be discussed and agreed in advance of the application. Your training plans etc will depend on those goals, so it’s essential you discuss these with us before the break as I won’t be around to do so during the two weeks we’re off!

Black Belt Applications

As mentioned in the news email after graduation, we’ve shifted our autumn Black Belt grading to december, so if we have any current junior members wishing to be assessed this year, the deadline for applications is fast approaching!


Applications Due by 31st August
Juniors (11-15): Applications must be agreed and submitted by end of August. Pre-grading assessment phase is September-November.
I highly recommend you get these sorted before our summer break (14th-28th August) as I will NOT be available during that time to deal with admin) and it’s important to remember that goals etc. must be agreed in advance and training plans submitted WITH your application so don’t leave them to the last moment!

MARCH 2024

Adults: Application deadline end August
Juniors: Applications due in November
Remember – if you’re looking to test for black belt, we expect YOU to take the initiative and be pro-active about your application etc. we don’t expect to have to chase up black belts!
