Karate suits (Gi's):
Please let me know if you have any old gi's at home we can pass them onto our new students. I can also order new gi's.
This term most of the students will be sitting there grading's.
Gradings will test your knowledge, skill, fitness and karate spirit.
Sometimes you will fly through some grading's, and sometimes you will struggle, That's how it is in life.
Make sure you are clean and tidy; bring your good manners and do your best, bad attitude will not be tolerated.
I will soon be handing out term 2 fees; this will include grading fees.
Prompt payment would be appreciated. We do have Internet banking.
Our family discounts are 50% per extra member. The minimum charge per term is based on 1 nights training per week, any less and it is probable not worth training, so let me know if you are going away during the term and I can adjust fees.
Term 2 Events:
Waikato champs 3rd July-Hamilton
NZ Nationals 16-17th July-Wellington
Sugihara Cup 23rd July-Auckland
Sensei Robbie Smith will also make a visit this term. Date to be confirmed.
This term there will be more regular Squad training's to prepare for the tournaments.
Trainings will be held most Friday evenings (6.00-8.00PM). The cost for these is $5.
Other clubs also attend these squad training's.
Training is free-sparring/drills (Kumite)
Let me know if you are keen, it is physical and there will be bumps and bruises.
I know is can get busy, so I will try and finish the lesson's on time so there is a 10 minute gap between classes. If you do use our driveway to do a drop off, please make sure you don't block my neighbour.
The house progress is moving along; my next project is putting in new steps.
If you have any suggestion for things let me know.
