Dear Student / Parent / Guardian,
We are now at the start of October and not long until I announce the winners of this years Student Awards - just to remind you that it is a points system, giving points for classes, courses, competitions and gradings. There is still time to boost your points score!

Monday 30th October - Grading
To be held at the Red Street dojo, I will send out grading invites and more details in the next week or two for those that are ready and eligible based on time passed and number of classes. Note there may be another grading just before the end of the year, so get those classes in. Remember you can train twice a week - Monday and Tuesday.
