Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Everyone!

As you are probably all aware most of the country has been put into further lock-down measures last week.
I’ve taken a few days to fully digest the new regulations and speak to our Association.
At present Kidderminster comes under tier 3 and the guidelines state that the teaching of children only martial arts indoors is allowed, I feel the most sensible thing to do is fold fire on classes until the restrictions have been lightened.
I’m very positive this won’t be long and with vaccines now being given out I think there is definitely light at the end of the tunnel and reasons to be cheerful.
Until Kidderminster goes back to Tier 2 or lower I’ll be offering Zoom classes online to help keep everyone together, staying positive and supporting the club so we can return to be stronger than ever once we are all through this current situation.

The good news is that we are into another brighter year, one that will see the end to Covid and allow us back to training.
My plans for this year as regulations allow is to set a grading’s date, enter more local and National Karate competitions and carry on with our chosen charity “Smile For Joel”
A lot of students have been patiently waiting to grade for many months, the British Martial Arts and Boxing Association is very clear on the endorsements of qualifications and will let us know very soon when we will be able to offer a chance for students to attempt new grading belts.

So welcome back to Young Gloves, lets all stay strong, positive and thankful to be part of this amazing club.    Many martial arts clubs have closed completely due to 2020, but with your continued support Young Gloves will stride forward taking on all challenges and making a difference to both students personally and the community around them.

I’m always very proud of what we achieve and the amazing people we have in our club.
“To Infinity & Beyond” 🙂
