Grading success

Last weekend four of our students took their black belt gradings.  I'm very proud to say that they all passed.  Congratulations to Fern Alexander and James Drake passing to 2nd Dan and Joseph Hawkins and William Quinney passing to 1st Dan.  Well done after many years hard work and dedication.

Today we had a grading for some of our Little Ninjas.  They all passed and demonstrated some excellent techniques and only aged 4 to 6.  



Our last lesson before the Christmas break will be on Tuesday 22 December.  Back on Tuesday 5 January 2016.  If you want to order some last minute goodies from Santa!.  See the catalogue and order through Sensei by 12 December.

Ninja grading

There will be a grading for our "Little Ninjas" on Saturday 30 January - Aireborough Leisure Centre.  Grading fee £13.  See Sensei if you want to grade.

Tuesday classes

From 8 September our Tuesday classes will move to Greenacre Hall.  Same time for both classes.  5.45 Ninjas and 6.30 for other grades.  The last Tuesday session at the Leisure Centre is therefore the 1 September.
