Community awareness
As many of you are aware Young Gloves Karate prides itself on not just being a excellent karate club, but also making a difference to our local communities.
With this in mind I know you will all want to join forces in upcoming projects.

Knife Awareness
Sat 4 May 3.00pm-3.30pm Birchen Coppice School Kidderminster
A 5 min input by myself regarding "Self Defence" against knives will be followed by a Police presentation regarding what we can do as a community to fight against this social problem we are facing on our streets.
Note this is not just for YGK students, friends and family are all welcome.
Spread the word and let's come together to make a difference.

Box 2 Beat Cancer
Sun 12th May 10.00am -11.00am Franche School Kidderminster I don't think there's many families that haven't been touched at some point by this horrendous illness, so here's a chance to join us for a fun 1hour session of Boxercise.
Only 4.00 All going to Cancer Research. Not just for YGK members, All are welcome and equipment is provided.
Lets see everyone spreading the word and raising money for this worthy cause whilst also having fun. :)

Family Karate Session
Sun 19th May 10.00am-11.00am Franche School Kidderminster As requested, many parents are now taking the time to help their children with their karate learning.
5.00 per family This is exactly the right thing to do and makes a huge difference to the child's confidence and performances having the support from their family.
With this in mind we are hosting a "FAMILY KARATE SESSION" designed to give parents an idea of the things needed to achieve success in our martial art.
I'm encouraging everyone to take part along with their children as a family, learning the very basics to, in turn help their children practise in their own time.
All funds raised from the Boxercise and family karate session will be donated to Cancer Research.

Disney Characters For Cracker Jacks
Sat 25 May just like last year Sensei's from YGK will be spending the day in Kidderminster Town centre dressed as Disney Characters raising money for "Cracker Jacks".
This is a local charity helping children with disabilities.
If you are in Kidderminster please to and say hello and get your photos with Olaf, Elsa, Mickey, Minnie and more.

Young Gloves are committed to providing an incredible martial arts club where children can come to learn valuable self defence, fitness, friendship etc.
These events however really separate us from other martial art clubs and DO make a difference not just to the charities supported but the individual children who get involved.
Children gain in confidence, happiness and self worth by helping others and making a difference to the community we are all part of.
With your help the club has already raised over 63,00 over 20 years. Be proud to be part of the Young Gloves Family :)
