Grange Park School is being expanded and the work has now started. This means that there is no parking allowed in the school at all. Please park in the side roads outside, it is not that far to walk.
Also we may have to use an entrance around the right hand side to get into the building. I will try my best to signpost this. I am assured that our training hall will be unaffected.
Please don’t try and drive in through the pedestrian entrance.
Enfield Gradings 2014
Grange Park School, Enfield N21 1PP. All Saturday’s all 12pm start
June 21st, September 13th & December 6th
I need your entries by the Wednesday before the grading. Make sure you have done the required amount of lessons since your last grading. It is 18 minimum below a blue belt, 36 above. I do keep a register and it only creates an uncomfortable situation if you ask to grade without enough training.
Challney School, Luton,
All Sunday’s all 1.30pm start
July 6th, September 21st & December 14th
If you choose to grade here I need your entries at least 2 weeks before the grading date and I will probably not be present.
From now until the end of June all classes will be in the Drama Room, the other side of the playground behind our usual gym. Please bring trainers to all classes from now to September as in nice weather we may train outside. When it’s really hot feel free to wear a plain or tae kwon-do t shirt.

All monthly payments are due on the first session of the month and will be for a calendar month. Due to the extra weeks and the 5 days available training there will be 12 full payments. The only exception to this will be in August, when I will be closing all the schools for 2 weeks. On this occasion pay half subs, or if you pay by bank transfer pay as normal and I will give you half the cash back. If you are a once a week monthly payer, feel free to train on another day that week if your day is cancelled.

Training and Gradings
It is quite noticeable, especially amongst the junior members that if there is a grading coming up and they are not ready to grade they miss training for 2, 3, even 4 weeks. If they are only training once a week, and especially at holiday periods they forget everything and I have to start teaching them all over again. The 18 lessons/ 36 lessons(Blue belts and above) rule for grading is simply that that’s the minimum timescale required to learn the syllabus properly. ALWAYS CARRY YOUR LICENCES WITH YOU! At pre Black belt sessions remember to pay £5 entry if you are not grading and sign the sheet
