Young Gloves News May 2021

Bank Holiday Mon
Sorry for the confusion but unfortunately classes are NOT on 31st May.
This is only on the Mon, ALL other classes over the Whitsun break are unaffected.
I’m trying to keep as many classes going as possible as we have missed so much training.
Please feel free to book another class where possible.

The week beginning 21st June all students ready will be given the opportunity to grade for their next belts up to and including Orange (7th Kyu).
The grading will be held in normal class time and an opportunity to “double grade” is being offered to those who have put the right amount of time and effort into training.
Costing is £25.00 single grade £40 Double which includes lesson, belt, certificates and registration with the British Martial Arts & Boxing Association.
All other students will be able to go for their next grade 8 weeks after restrictions easing hopefully 21th June when all elements of our syllabus can be practiced and tested including padwork, partner work and sparring,

Ready for the grading
Can we make sure that we are ready for the upcoming grading by revising what is needed to progress to the next karate rank.
A complete syllabus covering all grades can be found on our website.
The syllabus page is password protected so contact me and I’ll send you this on request.

For people not grading the week will just be normal lessons, please make the effort to support the club and fellow students.

Karate Licences
Please be aware of applying for karate licences which is done via our website and is needed to practice a martial art with a recognised official club.
Once subscribed this is renewed every year unless cancelled.

Smile for Joel
Thanks so much for all the amazing support given during our funding raising including running Landsend to John O’ Groats.
We have now reached well over half way (445 miles) and still going strong.   The total we have raised so far is an incredible £3633.   Further donations can be made via a just giving site accessed from our website.

Many Thanks
