July News.

Class Cancelations during summer.

Where possible classes will run as normal during the summer holiday period. However please inform me when you will not be at classes so that I can ensure classes run if appropriate. Last year we had several instances when instructors turned up but no students did, despite 6 or more people saying that they would definitely be there. I do not want to waste instructor’s time or club funds by having classes with only 1 or 2 students turning up. The following lessons are definitely cancelled so far: Tuesday 22nd July as the room is being used for Holiday Club and Tuesday 5th August as I will not be available. Students are welcome to train at either the Monday 6pm – 7.30pm or the Wednesday 6-30pm – 8pm classes at Mirfield Martial Arts club, off back station road Mirfield if they would like to (please check with Mr Philip Rowling (07891 467274) that the class/classes are taking place before you turn up to avoid disappointment. At present the only Mirfield class cancelation is August bank holiday Monday (25th). Hopefully all Saturday and Thursday classes will go ahead as normal BUT THAT IS UPTO YOU.

Karate Display 12th July.

Can I remind people taking part in the Karate display at the Sure Start Children’s Centre in Crosland Moor that the display will start at 1.30pm. Nigel Heaton will be walking up to Crosland Moor after the Karate class that morning should anyone else like to go up there with him. Also Philip Rowling has room for 3 people in his car if you would like a lift. If you prefer, you can make your own way there. Please see Nigel before hand to let him know what you will be doing.


The next grading should be during the first week of August. I have decided that due to class cancelations etc that I will grade people who are ready, during the last couple of weeks of August.


Can I remind students that took part in the kickathon, to please collect their sponsor money and hand it in to myself or Philip Rowling ASAP. We will let you know how much money was raised as soon as we are satisfied that all possible money has been collected.

T Shirts.

Club T Shirts can be purchased for £4 each all children’s sizes and £5 each for adults sizes while I have them in stock. I have the T Shirts with me at each lesson so please ask if you require one, and hopefully I will have one to fit you.
