Congratulations to all our colour belt grading candidates who graded last week! You will be receiving your results from today. Now we are looking forward to our next lot of grading candidates who will be demonstrating what they've learnt this term at our Mini Kids Grading this Thursday.
Remember we still have classes until Thursday 17 December so make sure you keep coming to class for some special challenges your instructors will be setting you!
No 6.30pm Class Tonight
We are having our planning meeting for next year tonight so there is no 6.30pm class. Do come on Thursday night though for training and to receive your grading results, belts and stripes!
Are You Coming?
Our end of year/Christmas training and picnic is on Saturday 12 December at the Waiatarua Reserve on Abbotts Way (just around the corner from our Ellerslie dojang) and all of our members from all of our branches are welcome.
We DO need more RSVP's to come in otherwise we will have to cancel. Lots of people have indicated they are intending to come but haven't RSVP's yet ... so please do!
Everyone who RSVP's before Friday 4 December will be in the draw for spot prizes.

And Two of Our Black Belts Are ...
... grading for their next Dan level this weekend! Miss Kara Timmer is grading for her 3rd Dan and Miss Roisin Giles for 2nd Dan. We wish them all the very, very best! If you would like to come and support them (and be inspired in your own training) the public section of the grading is at 1pm on Sunday and the grading is at Waiau Pa School. If you'd like to come and you need a ride, please post to our members and parents only group and we will try and connect you with transport.
Have a great training week!
