50 students graded in August’s grading week, from Wollondilly Karate, at our Tahmoor dojo. Congratulations to our two newest Purple Ninja belts (Ninja program is for 3 to 5 year olds).
Congratulations also to those students who achieved higher Kyokushin Karate belts. Olivia and Shylah achieving green belt, Emma and Riley achieving senior green belt and Dane and Jane achieving their brown belts.
A gentle reminder to keep students home if they are unwell. We always offer make up classes, that never ever expire and can be shared amongst family members. Just message us to book in a make up class.
Reminder that we are OPEN for the first week of the Winter school holidays and then CLOSED for the second week. Dates we are CLOSED are Sat 9th, Mon 11th, Tues 12th, Wed 13th of July. Reopening Sat 16th of July.
Next Grading Week is from Sat 6th of August. August Grading Week 2022 is happening in all classes on Sat 6th, Mon 8th, Tues 9th and Wed 10th of August, during normal class times.**
# For students who have been invited to grade by Sensei (but all students can join in the grading class). Click on the belt colour icon in your Whitebelt mobile app to see if enough classes and enough time has past, to gauge if an invitation is likely (this is just a gauge as Sensei takes a lot into consideration). Any trouble with your mobile app, please delete it and reinstall it again. See Sensei if you can not access your app.
# Emails will be sent out on Friday night the 29th of July to all those who Sensei has advised will be invited to grade (she will advise parents and students in classes, the week before).
**Kyokushin Green belts & above grading, will be on Saturday the 6th of August at Tahmoor CWA Hall (our normal dojo hall). 11.30am to 2.30pm (dojo will be open from 11am for students to warm up etc). 3 hour grading because brown and green belts grade now together.
End of year Awards Ceremony & Christmas Party. We are already planning for our biggest party yet (yep it takes us 6 months to pull it off). Details will be coming out nearer to the time but for now, put in you diary Saturday 10th of December kicking off at 1pm sharp (traditional awards ceremony) followed by an awesome Christmas party. Venue is at Wollondilly Leisure Centre. The whole family is invited.
Win a $50 Wollondilly Karate webshop gift voucher (to spend on anything in our webshop).
