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.

Next event

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.

 

 

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

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.

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
