Grading information πŸ₯‹

JUNIOR GRADING…REMINDER
Sat 26th March @ Georgetown, Merthyr

The grading day will be split into a number of sessions. As soon as we know numbers grading from all the clubs we’ll provide a timetable. However, we do know they’ll be afternoon sessions.

Apart from the white belt session we aren’t able to have spectators at gradings for other belts. We simply don’t have space for those grading plus spectators.

An up-to-date licence is required to grade. Please contact your club instructor for application form. Please note, licences are renewed annually.

Cut off for licences and grading fee to be handed to your club instructor is week ending Sunday 20th March. No licences or fees to be taken on the day as it causes delays.

A full karate kit to worn to grade NOT tshirts.

Any questions, contact your club instructors.
Thanks

Only three training sessions left until the grading . Can everyone check that their licence is up to date?

Good luck everyone πŸ‘Š

A reminder that there is no Adult class this Sunday.

Due to rising costs I am reluctantly having to increase the cost of each session to Β£4.00. This will bring us in to line with the other clubs in our Federation. This still remains well below the average cost of martial arts classes in Wales . Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
