Welcome to this month’s newsletter. December is here which means we will be having our annual end of year party and black belt grading. All the info for the next month can be found here plus details of our last classes of the year.
Black Belt & Coloured Belt Grading Weekend
The weekend of 16th & 17th December sees our members grade for coloured and black belts.
The coloured belt grading (Kup) is on Saturday 16th December at 1pm.

Prior to the Dan Grading there will be a seminar that is open to everyone that is red tags and above – 10am onwards. Anyone wishing to become dan grade in the next year is strongly encouraged to attend. The seminar is free to attend. Forms for the gradings can be obtained from your instructor.
If you are interested in competition then we have team training classes on Monday and Wednesday, 7-9pm. On Wednesday we do full contact sparring.

The party for the 4pm and Totkwondo classes will be 3.30 – 4.30pm. The children that attend the 5 & 6pm classes can attend at 5-7pm. There will be bouncy castle plus some surprises.
Mums and Dads can join the gym for free in December. Just let us know and we will amend your DD to come into effect in January. We will also throw in a free gym induction.
Renovation of the Netherton Community Centre
The community centre will undergo a massive renovation in 2018. That means extensive work will be carried out over a period of several months. We have been told that our taekwondo centre will not be affected by the changes and there will be no periods we are closed. However, it may mean that some work will be carried out during this period and we apologise for any inconvenience that may be caused. We will keep everyone up to date as and when we find out.
