Changes to training times

 Due to the hall being double booked on Sunday 13th I have had to rearrange our training times for next weekend. Friday will be as normal (6-7pm) there will be a session for low grades on Saturday morning (10 - 11am) and a session for high grades on Sunday morning (10 - 11am). Training is cancelled the following weekend due to the Easter bank holiday. Try to make it this weekend so you don't miss too many sessions.

Grading success

Our latest grading was held on Sunday 30th march. Sensei John Holdsworth carried out a superb session concentrating on correct technique, particularly during side snap kicks. This was followed by the grading in which all of our members performed really well. The kicking practice obviously paid off as Sensei commented on the kicking ability of those taking part. Well done to everyone, keep up the good work.

Grading Success

Our latest grading was held on Sunday 24th November. Senseis John Holdsworth and Julie Nicholson came along to our dojo at Dalton Le Dale to carry out the grading. A session concentrating on correct technique and development of speed was carried out prior to the grading. During the grading everyone performed really well especially Hayley and Ross who were rewarded for their efforts with a double grading. Some of our younger members showed great spirit to perform so well considering that nerves almost got the better of them, well done. Sensei Holdsworth commented on everyone's kicking ability which was just rewards for all their hard work. Congratulations everyone, keep it up.
