February Newsletter

Dear <<First Name>>, Welcome to your February Newsletter.

WOW! What a start to February we have in store. This Sunday is the South West Championships with a fantastic 25 students representing the club. The very day after is our clubs pre grading and the following Saturday is the colour belt grading in Newton Abbot.

I would like to take this opportunity to make an observation. Classes have been busy lately and students have bene training consistently. This is largely due to a grading and tournament being on the immediate horizon. As a consequence of this, the standard in class has been higher than ever. Congratulations to you all in this regard. It would be really fantastic if after this competition and grading, that the volume of training is maintained equally high. I look at the talent around the club and genuinely believe so much to be possible. With and English Champs, Welsh and World Championships on the horizon along with black belt and colour belt gradings, there really is so much to train towards.

In summary, keep trying regularly, keep training hard, keep moving forwards and fulfil your true potential!

Changes to training times from May 
I want to give you all as much notice as possible about some possible tweaks to your training from May onwards and gather any feedback before I make definitive decisions.

The first problem I'm trying to solve is to ensure that we are using the whole space at ESA rathe than just 1/3. This will sure significantly less background noise for me to compete with. 

The possibilities are as follows. 

From May 1st

Whole hall at ESA for all sessions!

Mondays 5pm - 6pm (Family class aimed primarily at juniors)
Mondays 6pm-7pm (Adults and senior grades) 

Wednesdays 6pm-7pm (Family class aimed primarily at juniors)
Wednesdays 7pm-8pm (Adults and senior grades) 

I am looking to run an additional weekly session on either Friday evenings or Sundays.

As mentioned, none of these changes are final. I would greatly appreciate feedback to guide my final decisions. 

Any thoughts call 07774284000 or email
