Our midweek classes are on Tuesday and Thursday at 6pm, we apologise for any inconvenience caused.

The August grading will be held on the 10th August and the September grading will be held on Saturday the 28th September. Both gradings will start at 12.15. The cost is £30 per person and all details can be found at www.titantkd.com

Mac Millan Coffee Morning

We will be having another coffee morning on Saturday the 21st of September, we managed to raise £260 last year so lets see if we can top that total! We will have loads of cake (of course) to tuck into so feel free to invite friends and family along!

This year there will also be a bake off event and other competitions to enter!

Extra grading practice

There is an opportunity for our green belts in our beginners class to do some extra grading practice before sitting their blue tags and moving up to the advanced group. Students are welcome to stay after their regular lesson for 15-20 mins to work with an instructor on specific grading requirements.

This opportunity is also open to our advanced class who are looking to attain their black belt, just stay behind after class.

Sparring class

Our sparring class runs from 12.15 – 1.15 after the advanced class on a Saturday and is open to all students. Why not pop down and give the class a try?!

My bad!!!!

Apologies for last weeks Saturday classes being cancelled. I was given notice in the summer that the hall would be unavailable and I diligently wrote this on my wall calendar at the time…then completely forgot to look at said calendar. I have never managed to do this before and apologies for any inconvenience.

Congratulations to all the new Titan grades who passed their grading in October

Congratulations to our star performer Rhys!

The next grading will be on Saturday the 1stth December at 12.15. Full details of the syllabus can be found online at www.titantkd.com.

This grading will also be an opportunity for our  black tag candidates to sit a mock black belt grading at no cost.

 

Cancelled class

There will be no classes on Tuesday 13th November as there is line painting on the floor, Thursday classes will be back on as normal.

Next competition

The next event for the club will be the GTA 1-2-1 on Sunday the 2nd December at Caledonian Taekwondo Health and fitness centre. The event will host sparring, patterns and breaking and it costs £15 to enter as many divisions as you wish.

Christmas party

Our Christmas party this year will be held on the 8th December from 3-4.30pm at Craigholme Sports Complex. We will have cakes, games,  and bouncy castle fun. Just let your instructor know if you can attend so we can cater for the correct number.

Sparring class

There is now a team training class on Saturdays at 12.15pm after regular classes. This is open to green tags and up and all adults. If you are already on a full membership there is no extra charge for this class, if you pay for one class a week your payment will go from £22 a month to £30 a month.

There is no sparring class on the last Saturday of every month as this is reserved for our monthly gradings.

Bring a friend

Remember we are still running our bring a friend promotion! If you introduce a friend to TKD and they sign up you get one month of fees back in cash!

Change of payment system

As Titan taekwondo continues to grow we are now using a company called Ashborne who will collect payments via direct debit rather than standing order and also help with the communication and management of classes. I will be asking people to change over payments from standing orders to the new direct debit system, please continue to pay for classes as normal until I speak to you in class to explain the process. The cost of the classes are not going to change.
