Happy New Year to you all.
Classes are starting on Wednesday 3rd January, and the usual term calendar will be published shortly.
As per the calendar, we have normal classes on Wed 13th Dec & Mon 18th Dec, but on WED 20th DEC instead of the class we will have the Adult Xmas Social Gathering from 7pm – 10pm.
Please bring some food for the buffet table and whatever you wish to drink - look forward to seeing you there.
We will publish the class dates for the new term shortly.
The first Dan grading within the club (according to the new British Taekwondo rules) was held on Saturday 30th September 2017, and we were proud to see the excellent standards of all the participants, some of whom are pictured above with their new club certificates. World Taekwondo certificates will follow as the paperwork is processed.
Congratulations to everyone who took part from PremierKi and other related clubs.
The club name will of course remain as PremierKi but with the changes to the Dan grading procedure, a new logo is being developed and will be presented on the new Stripe/Kup & Dan Gradings this Term.
Club badges & clothing will be available to order a bit later this term.
With the changes to the British Taekwondo Dan Grading procedures, we will be holding our first Dan Grading (for students looking to grade 1st to 3rd Dan) on Saturday 30th September.
Now that we've ended the term with the Club Championships, the next term doesn't start until Monday 4th September.
But we will still be running classes on selected Wednesday evenings on a Pay-As-You-Go basis (£7 a class, no booking needed just turn up and take part).
For Junior Students Green Belt and above only (attendance recommended, especially for the higher grades) there will be 5 drop-in classes on Wednesdays at Eastcote Methodist Church.
For Senior Students there are classes on both Mondays at the Cannon Lane Methodist Church, and on Wednesdays at the Eastcote Methodist Church
We may take this opportunity to cover some more varied topics such as takedowns, self defence, extended sparring and ... whatever else people want to suggest.
Post a comment below about what you'd like to see us cover over the summer.
Club Championships this evening will be held at Eastcote Methodist Church.
The Juniors will be first from 6:30pm until 8:00 pm
And the Seniors will follow from 8:00pm until 9:30pm
Parents and family are of course welcome to come and watch and there will be time for photos etc.
Just a reminder that there's no classes the morning of Saturday July 1st as we have a Kup grading taking place.
