Hi all, I hope everyone is looking forward to the team Kumite finals tomorrow! We have had a small change to the line up as Andrew Knott has stepped in to replace the Injured Alan Fielding.As per the poster the plan is to start at 730 (straight after class), Spectators allowed so would be great if everyone stays back from the class to watch and support – including parents and anyone who canโ€™t make the full class.We will use the usual live stream to allow people at home to watch.Plan is to draw the teams on the night, some early infoโ€ฆโ€ฆ.The teams will be drawn randomly from 3 pots (each team will be made up of one person per pot).Once the teams are drawn they must submit their fighting order on a piece of paper before each round.

Great news everyone we are back training face to face from Monday 3rd August. All classes will be on at St Margaretโ€™s community centre (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday – times as per normal). The class numbers are limited, therefore we will have a strict pre-booking system. I will work on the details tonight and will issue them tomorrow.

Hi All, Guidelines for coming back to face to face classes next week have been circulated via email to all club members, if you did not get it please let me know.Classes can be pre-booked up to one week in advance. Pre-Booking for 3rd, 4th, 6th and 7th August can be taken from 12pm on Thursday 30th July. Booking can be achieved by contacting me via text or email, please await positive confirmation that the place is secured. If the day you want to book is full you can either take another available day that week or receive priority for the same day the week later. I will do my utmost to ensure that everyone gets the opportunity to train therefore I am limiting people to only one face to face training session for the first week. As places are limited if a student is booked in and does not turn up I expect the session to be paid for. Please remember that the virtual classes will also remain in place for the moment to ensure that all students have the ability to train at least twice per week and to support those in the vulnerable category or our remote guests.
