For those who have requested it, we have limited facilities for physical classes in Term 4, and as the virtual classes grow in popularity we're adding extra classes. The adult beginners class is doing exceptionally well so any parents who wish to get involved – please contact us for a trial lesson.
Thank you to all the students who supported the club during the lockdown, we are really pleased with how the Term 2 Zoom Classes went and are looking forward to continuing the good work in Term 3.
Unfortunately we have made the difficult decision to temporarily stop our taekwondo classes with immediate effect. This is in line with the Government guidelines on social distancing and advice from our National Governing Body British Taekwondo due to the Corona Virus pandemic.
We are sorry to be in this position but our members health is our main priority. We promise to open our doors as soon as we can and will email with updates on when our classes will begin.
Please encourage some Taekwondo practice at home especially stretching, (we are currently investigating the possibility of some on-line classes to help with the boredom of isolation). We will of course credit any cancelled classes off the next bill when classes commence.
If people want to send videos of their patterns we are more than happy to send some feedback and things to practice and work on .
We thank you for your understanding and continued support during this uncertain time, please look after yourselves and your family.
Term 3 will run from 4th September until 21st December 2019 - a full schedule can be found on the Classes page.
Hope everyone had a great Summer Break. Well done to the students that continued to attend our Summer classes. Well done to a few of you who sent me a photo of you training on holiday – next year we will run a competition on our facebook page for Summer kicking photos 😊
Welcome to any new students who are joining this term – thank you to everyone who advertises, recommends and passes on our contact details. We have a busy Term 3 with a Black Belt Grading in September, National Championships in Nov/Dec, and Kup Grading in December. See the Classes page for more details.
