We will not have classes next Monday due to the Bank Holiday. Have a great weekend everyone and we will see you again on Wednesday!
The date for the End of Year Show has been changed it will now be held on Wednesday the 19th of June from 6:30-8:30 Family tickets are €20 and individuals for €5. All students will be involved and need to be here at 6pm. We would be delighted if parents could bring along some cakes, sandwiches etc.
There will be no pre grading this term due to unforeseen circumstances in recent weeks. I have decided to push the Color belt grading back a week to Wednesday the 26th of June to help the students to be ready, please ensure you have your sparring equipment on the night. If you are away on vacation when you return a date will be fixed so that you will not miss out. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all members and families and friends for their wonderful support in the loss of our dear friend.
We hope to see you all on our End of year Family Day on the 19th of June.
