The next Junior Grading will be held on Saturday 29th April at 10:30am. All students with 5 tags on their belt are eligible to grade. The Grading will last for 2 hours. The White Belts will not have to participate in the sparring section, so they should be finished in approximately 90mins. The next Grading after this has not been schedued yet, but it likely to be 4-6 weeks away. Good luck to you all.

The school holidays are a time for rest and relaxation, but it is also important for you all to keep up with some practice, so that you maintain and improve your skills. During the school holidays we will be running a reduced timetable of classes. There will be no classes on Fridays or Saturdays and there will be no 8pm advanced Adult classes on Mondays and Wednesdays for the 2 weeks of the holidays. The timetable for the holidays will be as follows:

Monday 3rd and 10th April-

5:00pm-5:55pm - Juniors-White, Gold and Orange Belts

6:00pm-6:55pm - Juniors-Red Belts and above

7:00pm-8:00pm - Adults and Teens-All Grades

Wednesday 5th and 12th April-

5:00pm-5:55pm - Juniors-White, Gold and Orange Belts

6:00pm-6:55pm - Juniors-Red Belts and above

7:00pm-8:00pm - Adults and Teens-All Grades

These holiday classes are included in your memberships, so you do not need to book in or pay extra. Just come in and train. We will start back to regular timetable on Wednesday 19th April as there will be no classes on Monday 17th April due to the Easter Monday Public Holiday. I look forward to seeing you all in the Dojo soon. 

Merry Christmas and happy new year

As the end of the year quickly approaches, some of the final Gradings for the year will be held on the following dates:

Junior Grading - White to Purple Belts - Saturday 5th November - 10:30am to 12:30pm

Senior Black Belt Grading - Saturday 12th November - 2:00pm to 6:00pm

Junior Black Belt Grading - Saturday 19th November - 10:30am to 2:30pm

It is likely that one more Junior Grading and one more Senior Grading will be able to be fit in before the end of the year. The dates for these have not yet been finalised, but they are most likely to be held on Saturday 10th December and Monday 12th December respectively. The last classes for the year and the breakup parties will be held on Wednesday 14th December with the Juniors at 4:00pm and the Seniors at 7:00pm. Train hard and I'll see you in the Dojo.
