Please Could we make a effort please to contact instructors
if you are unable to attend your regular class even if it's
just a simple text or email as early as possible. Lesson plans
are disrupted if a Sensei is planning on spending time with
an individual or group who are then absent. More planning can
then go to the students who are in class.
Children's Safety Policy
Safety and well being of children is paramount and therefore
can we be reminded that children should not be dropped off and
left before the lesson before the instructor arrives. Ensure
we have current contact details, and be contactable the whilst
your child is with us. Ensure you know the correct time classes
finish in order to pick up your child.
We break up for summer, however we do keep a class going on
Weds each week for all karate members and Boxercise classes.
Please be aware that in order to progress properly within martial
arts time and effort needs to be spent practicing. To be able
to meet the standard needed as set out in our syllabus each
student should be training regularly and learning in their own
time revising from the YGK syllabus. From around Green belt
training twice a week is recommended to continue to grade regularly.
Karate Sparring Kit
To be able to develop appropriately from Green Belt it is expected
that all YGK students have their own full YGK sparring kit.
Please be aware for safety only YGK kit maybe worn and can be
brought at trade price via your instructor to include; Head
Guard, Foot Protectors and Gloves. Groin guards and chest protectors

karate and is seen as an extension to your already learnt drills
