There are some very important letters for most of our members being given out at the end of classes this week which outline some membership changes which come into force from October. Please make sure you pick yours up and ask for the letter from your child.
The Warrior Taekwon-Do Club has had three awesome trainings so far on Friday nights at6.30pm. If you are yellow belt and above and keen to improve your competition skills, make sure you apply to join! Members who are working towards the next Under 18 Tournament in October would find this focused training beneficial.
Have a great training week!
