The weather is getting colder, but don't let the chill deter you from your goals - keep coming along and keep improving! It's so important to keep exercising even when it's colder - as well as the fitness benefits, it also gets you out of the house (but you get to train indoors!) and fitness is proven to be beneficial for mental health during the rainy season.
Get your Mini Kids books signed ahead of grading
Mini Kids and their parents - it's time to do your mini kids homework in your white Mini Kids book and have it signed off by your instructor. This is compulsory before you can be approved to grade or receive a grading form. Mr Kevin Matsuoka is away on holiday for another week or so - but you can show your book to Miss Roisin Giles who is taking Mr Matsuoka's classes in his absence.
Best Defence Course
If you are 16 or over and serious about being able to defend yourself and deal with potentially dangerous and dangerous situations - this is a must attend course. It's also open to people who don't train in Taekwon-Do so if you are a parent or family member (or friend or whatever) this is open to you too, no martial arts skill or training required. The course content includes: recognising and understanding confrontation and violence, avoidance and awareness strategies, de-escalation, diffusion and skills to defend in real world situations. DO NOT expect this course to be a walk in the park - it's R16 for a reason. DO expect it to help equip you to defend yourself. The course is on 16 July at Henderson Intermediate and spaces are already filling up.
