Congratulations everyone who graded at the colour belt grading last week! There are some great photos from the grading to check out here.
The colour belt grading was also a milestone for our Warrior Three Kings branch, who had students at a colour belt grading for the first time - congratulations to the three new Three Kings yellow stripes!
Belts will be arriving either today or in the next few days - so will have them ready to present to you as soon as they are here.
Mini Kids Grading Tomorrow
We're expecting a large number of grading applicants and their families and friends tomorrow for the grading, so please allow time to find parking. We ask that you please find parking off-site to lessen congestion around our entrance and make it safer for pedestrians walking to the Warrior Training Zone. Please arrive by 3.45pm for a 4pm start.
During the July school holidays (5 July - 20 July) we will be running a limited timetable at our Ellerslie location in order to have better class numbers:
3-5 year old class - 4.30pm and 5.30pm sessions will run on Mondays
Mon-Fri 3.30pm and 4.30pm classes are COMBINED and running at 4.30pm
Mon-Fri 5.30pm and 6.30pm classes are COMBINED and running at 6.30pm
Saturday 9.30am classes at Stanhope Rd School Hall will continue to run except on 5 July
Please make sure you diary the times your class will be on during the holidays.
Pee Wee Tournament - July 20
We'd like to get a whole bunch of our little warriors at the Pee Wee Tournament on Sunday 20 July in Pukekohe! This Pee Wee tournament is suitable for anyone on the mini kids syllabus, anyone aged 12 or under (mini kids or colour belts). I've personally been to some of the pee wee tournaments before and they are extremely well run, a lot of fun, and a great introduction to tournaments for anyone competing for the first time, as well as a good training ground for kids developing their tournament skills.
In the final couple of weeks before the school holidays our instructors will be spending some time in class introducing kids to some of the events that will be in the tournament so that they have the confidence to enter. It's just $20 to compete in four events on the day - make sure you register your child here.
