Advertising and Help
We need new faces in the clubs. I'm setting up a proper club facebook account and also a twitter account. Other ideas for social media advertising would be most welcome. I'm also getting some flyers made, as some of you have kindly offered to deliver them and take them into schools. When I have all the social media set up you can help me out by liking and sharing the account and keep googling the website to get the rating up.
All Sparring kit used in class must have approved by Tae Kwon Do International on it, with then TAGB logo. All equipment can be purchased through me.
Training and Gradings
It is quite noticeable, especially amongst the junior members, that if there is a grading coming up and they are not yet ready to grade, they tend to miss 2,3, even 4 weeks training.
The Juniors especially tend to forget what they have learnt very quickly if they miss training, especially at holiday periods.
If you are looking to grade in September you will need to train over the school shutdown period.
The criteria is 18 lessons(3 months) between grades up to blue tag and 36 lessons(6 months) for blue belts and above
Red and Black Belts
Every 6 months you need to attend a pre black belt session, 3 sessions if you are grading. If you are not grading there is a nominal charge of £5 for the session. I give details of times and venues nearer the time.
