News Update 18th August

Junior/Cadet Summer School

The Junior/Cadet Summer School was great fun. A big thank you to everyone who came along and helped make this event possible. We covered loads of topics from flipping to sword work and even making up and filming fight scenes.

We’ve got loads of ideas for next year’s Summer School so keep your eyes peeled and ears open for news.

Back to School

Give your child a confidence boost before the new school year starts. Going back to school can be a nerve-wracking experience so the ability to walk tall and act with confidence is not to be underestimated.

By using our system of recognising achievement and setting goals we make confidence a skill that effortlessly trained and honed.

Peel 2 Save

We are still a long way off achieving our target of raising £2,000 for Clic Sargent by selling Peel 2 Save discount voucher cards. Each card contains 64 vouchers and at £10 a card will pay for itself in just 1 use. There is a potential savings of £300 with these cards so if you go out in town or would like to go out more then you really cannot afford to be without one of these cards.

Post Summer school update

Summer School

This was No 18 and I have to say it was by far the best. The venue was much better, thanks to Sensei Phil Musson, and our guests were on top form. The date for next year will be around mid June so as not to clash with the Olympics, as soon as I have a date I will publish it. A BIG thanks you to all who supported the Summer School, without you events like this are not possible.

Training focus

The training focus for this week is:-

Monday - Sokumen Iriminage

Tuesday - Shihonage/Tenchinage

Wednesday - Sankajo

Thursday - Kotegaeshi
