After sixteen years of teaching, I have finally purchased a van. I have had it customised with our logos all over it. As an instructor it is a great way of advertising and for people to see it every day of the year. It is so much better than having a car, and it is the best way to make your organisation and clubs a success.
I can’t believe there are waiting lists for both classes at the club. As they say if you have a dream and you know it will work you should never give up. It has taken a while to achieve, but it could have been so easy to have given up. Both of the American bases have become a success, and I am very proud that all the hard work that I have put into the bases has paid off.
Congratulations to all the infants that passed their first belt or next grade. Especially a massive well done to Hayden who achieved the highest grade in the class since the club started. The infants did a fantastic grading with traditional techniques. They developed great confidence and speed, which will help them a lot at this year’s British Championship.
Wow the junior class has gone from strength to strength; it is truly amazing what you can do if you believe it can happen. Yet again the junior did a great job, and my mind games showed what they could really achieve. They were awesome and did themselves and the club proud. Congratulations to everyone that passed their next grade.
Just to let everyone know this year’s British Championship will be on Sunday 22nd May. Due to the amount of students that will want to take part, there will be a cut-off date. There will be NO ENTRIES ALLOWED after this date. So please beware that once you receive the letter & entry form, please enter your child as soon as possible so you don’t lose out.
As last year’s summer camp was a sell-out, I can confirm that next year’s summer camp will be from MONDAY 8TH AUGUST TO FRIDAY 12TH AUGUST 2016.
Please visit our website www.ishinryu.com as much as possible as I submit reports every month about the students training during the previous month. This is a great opportunity to see if you have been mentioned or appear in a photo.
We also have the new calendar page where you can have a look at upcoming events so you can plan ahead. You can also leave feedback on each of the reports or comment on your son/daughters club and share them to your Facebook pages.
If you have any questions or you are unsure of anything, please catch me at the club where I will be happy to help!
If you are on Facebook, please can you send me and Kevin Pell a friend request so if we need to pass on information quickly I can contact you, and when the reports go up I can share it to your Facebook page so you get it straight away.
