Tove Valley Towcester only

We have tried to find the easiest way to grade this venue. All other clubs are graded centrally in Harpenden on a weekend but understand it’s far to travel.

To keep things simple we decided to keep Towcester grading at Tove and have split the gradings over the year to alternate Mondays or Weds. We understand this may clash with other clubs but we have tried to give notice for the whole year for the grading dates and keep it fair. We apologise if this makes things tricky for you however we have tried to arrange it in the most convenient way possible allowing minimal travel, cost and also myself and Brian teach on other days. No plan will suit everyone we understand but in lesson gradings are not possible. If the grading falls on a day you train please attend an extra class to make up if you can.

You are also welcome to grade at Milton Keynes on a Saturday or Harpenden on a Sunday.

Thanks 😊

All classes running as normal over half term 👊🏻

Finishing and restart dates

Last lesson Tuesday 21st December restart Wednesday 5th Jan

We have made the decision for this year to change our normal 4 week break from training. 2 weeks we had in the summer and 2 weeks over Christmas rather than the usual 4 week break over Christmas.

As most of you are aware we take a break over Christmas/New year as the direct debit payments cover 48 training sessions throughout the year in 12 x 4 week blocks. Leaving 4 weeks of the year for a break.

At Christmas there will only be a two week break so no training that’s paid for will be missed.

Grading schedule December 2021

Wednesday 8th December
All Tiny Tigers 4.30pm to 5.15pm
All Grades 5.30pm to 6.30pm

Sunday 12th December

Yellow, Green, Purple, Purple/white, Brown,
Brown/white, Brown/WW, Brown/Red
12 NOON to 1.00pm
Assessments Brown/white, Brown/double white, Brown/Red, Brown/double red.
12 NOON to 2pm

If you normally train on one of these days please attend an alternative lesson that week to make up for the missed class.

The assessments take place every 3 months and everyone from Brown/white to Brown/double red who is not grading is expected to attend. Brown belts grade every 6 months if they are ready, with an assessment in between.
The journey from brown belt to black belt can be a steep learning curve and we want to be able to give the best opportunity for everyone to focus on their goal and train to keep fitness levels up and a chance to go over the current syllabus for the black belt.
It is not possible in lesson time to run through the whole syllabus and the assessments are a great opportunity to keep in touch with the basics and katas that need to be learnt. The assessments are of benefit to all and enables you to have an extended training session focusing purely on your level. Black belt excellence is kept in mind and in an environment that reflects the level of knowledge required in a pressured environment that you will be expected to strive for to reach black belt. The assessments will be free of charge and only those that are due to grade will have to pay the fee for the grading in the normal way.
Even those that do not have enough stamps to be considered for grading are still expected to come so that we are able to assess their performance and give feedback on the areas that need more focus.
