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.

Karate Protocol Covid

As the government restrictions have lifted we are updating our training conditions.

There is no need to text prior to class anymore as numbers aren’t restricted. 

After August 7th no shoes will need to be worn.

We would ask that brown belts and above bring their own equipment and mitts.

Any equipment used in class will be cleaned in between sessions.

We will allow, where the venue has access, availability to seating for parents and carers but will have to be guided by each centres decision.

We will provide hand gel if you wish to use as some equipment might be used please wash hands prior to the lesson if you do not wish to use gel.

Please do not attend if you feel unwell or are showing any symptoms or anyone in your household.

Please remember we all have our own feelings about “freedom” remember some people have never trained with us without the restrictions or barefoot so we may all need some time to ease back in. We have all had different journeys over the last few months.

If you don’t wish to participate in a particular activity within the session please advise your Sensei at the class.

Thank you for all the cooperation and look forward to seeing you all in the Dojo soon. Thank you to the instructors for continuing to teach and hopefully you all felt as safe as you could be whilst training.
