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

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.

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

 

Next event 12th August

Our next event will be on Sunday the 12th August. 

The next competition for Titan TKD will be on Sunday the 12th Aug at Craigholme sports centre from 9.30 – 2pm. The competition will include sparring, poomsae and breaking and costs 15pp to enter as many divisions as you wish. If you would like to enter please register with your instructor in class.

We always need volunteers to help these events run smoothly it is also an excellent opportunity for referees to practice their skills in a friendly environment. Just comment below if you can help out.
