Successful Nov 30 class..

Nov 30 students reviewed criteria for 6th kyu. They did well. Only a couple of things to fine tune. THe 6th kyu test will be held in Jan/17. Some students will do a 6th kyu Part 1 of 2 test and will do 6th kyu Part 2 a month later. Some will be ready to do all the 6th kyu test. In late spring 2017 some students will be ready to do the 5th kyu (yellow) test. Some will test for 5th kyu Part 1 and later do Part 2. In this way progress will be monitored.

October Classes at BF.

Classes continue at BF tomorrow wednesday .... the group that are practising for a 2nd year is really helping the new students! .. basics are easier to practise when several around you know what to do! Just help each other !
Students - come to gym after school. You can help put mats down and get ready for practise. Class finishes at 4 but then a few minutes are needed to put mats away.
