Please note, Friday session on 17th March in Gloucester will not be on – all students who wish to grade in May are encouraged to attend Saturday training – you will learn lots, you will get familiar with the place where the grading will take place and we will be there to support you, parents are welcome to stay and watch.

Please book in advance so we make the most of the valuable time with Simon Sensei. Those who wish to grade in May will have an opportunity to do a mock grading and receive feedback. Lunch & chinwag after training – please let me know if you’re joining us so we can book a table.

Interclub competition
