It's a big week this week with our Term 3 Mini Kids Grading on Thursday at 4pm. We will be closing the car park to enhance safety around the driveway, so please make sure you come in good time to find parking as we will be starting at 4pm on the dot. All the best to all the mini kids grading candidates, who I am sure will do themselves proud.
This week we feature Warrior staff member Mr Kevin Matsuoka in our newsletter.
Staff Profile - Mr Kevin Matsuoka
Mr Kevin Matsuoka began training when he was 7 years old, training under Mr Peter Graham (his current instructor). He has been involved in the wider Taekwon-Do community for many years as a competitor in the array of tournaments offered in New Zealand (earning some medals along the way) and as an official.
His favourite technique is the side kick, with which he can consistently break through 3 or more boards! Mr Matsuoka teaches mini kids on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.
Wednesday Night Open Do-jang Has Been Seriously UPGRADED!
Our Wednesday Night Open Do-jang sessions have been given a serious upgrade - now turbo charged with mag wheels! At 6.30pm on Wednesday nights, Warrior members who are ranked blue belt and above can come to High Performance training and train with NZ Team Coaches, Mr Chris Broughton and Mr Brendan Doogan. Usually there is a cost associated with each session, however Warrior members may attend for free. This is intensive training alongside world championship hopefuls, so come along if you're ready to put in some serious work.
No Classes This Thursday
Remember there are NO classes at all on Thursday this week, but if you normally come to class on a Thursday you can come to a class at the same time on a different day this week (if you're not sure what classes you could attend instead, please contact me at the office).
Have a great training week!
