Good afternoon everybody,

School is back for most people now and we have a revised after-school club schedule! This is still in the process of being finalised thus you shall recieve an additional email confiming the day/time of your after-school club ASAP!

After School Club Schedule for 17/18 Academic Year!

The full after-school club schedule will be announced THIS WEEK. There is NO after schoo club in Nottingham. But Derby after school club will start this week.
We can confirm that the following after-school clubs will be subject to NO CHANGE for the following academic year:

  • Monday: Dunkirk Primary School Abbey Campus; 3.15pm – 4.15pm

    The Tuesday schedule will come back from Tuesday 12th September. That is NOT this week, but NEXT WEEK
    This class will run consistently again as normal from 7pm – 9pm @ Lenton/Dunkirk dojo

    Extra Advanced Junior Class on Wednesdays

    We are continuing with the Extra Advanced Class on Wednesdays at Sneinton Dojo @ 6pm for the advnaced Juniors. We had some positive feedback for the class, and great use of much bigger hall to do more dynamic and exciting training for all the high level juniors. We will still keep it every 2 weeks for now to see how people will manage the class during this term time.

    The Class Schedue for September :

  • Wednesday 6th @ Sneinton Dojo : 6pm – 7pm
  • Wednesday 20th @ Sneinton Dojo : 6pm – 7pm

    This month we have the 3rd grading of the year and we want to make it just as big an occasion as the previous two! If you are considering grading then now is the time to start putting the serious hours in on the mats. Our advice we always give to those who are unsure is to train as much as you can from now until the date of the test, and you can see how you feel closer to the time, but don’t give up before even trying!!

  • Where? Derby Dojo! (Sunnyhill Community Centre, Coleridge St, Derby, DE23 8AF)
  • When? Thursday 28th September @ 7pm
  • How? Don’t worry, we will start some classes off as test practice this week with the final 2 weeks before grading being exclusively test practice!
  • If you need an Uke for your test then please approach a suitable person as soon as possible to be certain that they are both available and in attendance for the grading. (I am available to take anyone’s uke at the current time!)
