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

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.

Changes in class times on Saturdays from July

Our class times on a Saturday have changed slightly from July. As we now have access to the full hall for part of the time on Saturdays we have changed the class times to provide a more efficient class schedule and it will also allow us to trial a specific sparring class for the first time.

The new class times are as follows

Saturday

9.45-10.15          Tot kwon do

10.15-11.15        Beginner

11.15-12.15        Intermediate and Advanced

12.15-1.15          Sparring class

Our mid week classes remain the same

Tuesday

6pm-7pm            Grading class

Thursday

6pm – 7pm          Taekwondo for all

However the last Saturday of every month will always be our monthly grading instead of the sparring class. We are going to trial this format for 2 months to see if there is demand for a sparring specific class.

Currently we offer a one class a week option for students at £22 a month or £37 two kids. From July we will no longer offer this to new students joining the club, if you are currently paying this and do not wish to add any additional classes (midweek or sparring) there will be no change to your fees.

If you currently pay for one session a week and wish to attend our new sparring class the cost would increase from £22 a month to £30 a month. If you use a family membership the cost increases from £37 a month to £47 a month for 2 children.

If you have any questions just speak to your instructor in class

Titan Tshirts

(Fingers crossed) Spring has arrived with some warmer weather, if students wish to train with their blue Titan t-shirt instead of their full dobock this is no problem. I will be putting in a new order  shortly and t-shirts cost £8 each. The sizes range from 5-6, 7-8, 9-11, 12-13, 14-15 and adults S, M & L. To order one just put down your name and size on the order sheet at class.

 

Parents Taekwondo

We offer classes to parents as well as kids. This is always offered at a discounted rate of £20 per month for unlimited classes. If you want to try out a few classes for free just pop into class and give the sport a shot. We already have a few parents why join in with our classes, why not ask them what to expect from you first class?

Class timetable

We run 3 sessions a week at Criagholme on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturday mornings. Our Tuesday class is a technique and grading based class and our Thursday and Saturday classes are general TKD. If you wish to attend more than one class a week there is only a slight increase in fees and it costs £30 per month (£47 for a family membership)

If any student wishes to sit their black belt this December it is a requirement that they attend more than one class per week.

If you currently pay for one class a week and you miss your regular class feel free to drop in to an different class to make up for your missed session
