✨Fantastic News✨ We are proud to announce the opening of our newest location on Thursday 25th April 2019 6:30-7:30pm at:
Southgate School Sussex Way Cockfosters EN4 0BL
This is a fantastic opportunity to return to a venue that we were previously in!🙌 Mr Mistry will be the Chief Instructor at the school running it on behalf of Enfield Choi Kwang Do Schools. We look forward to seeing you all at our opening day. 🎉😄
Remember you'll get one free testing if you refer someone and they join any of our schools.
The school will be going cashless in an endeavour to reduce the overhead of processing cash (and cheques) for
- fees (training and grading) - licence and insurance - merchandise (t-shirts, hoodies, etc)
All payments need to be made by bank transfer to the Enfield CKD account. The reference field should contain the students surname, first initial, a space then one of the following 4 character code as appropriate:
TFEE - training fee (for monthly STO) GFEE - grading fee (for colour belt, tag and dan testing) INSR - for licence and insurance TEES - for merchandise (T-Shirts, hoodies, etc)
For example - TailorM GFEE
There is an 18 character limit so please use the student number instead if your family name is longer than 12 characters.
For example - 123456 GFEE
In addition we will require the monthly training fees to be payed on the 1st of the month by standing order. Late payment will incur a £5 charge per student. Please discuss with Mr Tailor if you need to temporarily pause payment prior to stopping the payment otherwise it will incur a late payment charge.
Registration for Classes
Please ensure that you arrive on time to classes as the register closes when students line up to start the class and so it'll not be added to your attendance count required for eligibility to grade.
March Colour Belt Testing
The next testing is at Turkey Street on Tuesday 26th March 2019 and is looking to be a large testing with over 30 students potentially being eligible to test. 😄👏 Timings are:
Juniors 6:30 - 7:30 pm
Adults 7:30 - 8:45 pm
All uniforms must be worn in full and be clean and pressed. Only Choi Kwang Do or plain T-shirts can be worn underneath which will also need to be tucked into the trousers. Belts must be correctly tied to form a square knot. Please see any of the SLT if you are unsure.
Testings are carried out without mats and need to be undertaken barefoot. However for our younger students we will allow trampoline/gripper socks to be worn. Normal socks without grips are unsafe so cannot be worn.
Please ensure that all fees are paid ahead of the grading. Students need to arrive 10-15 minutes prior to their session to allow the testing to start on time. Any students arriving after testing has started may not be allowed to join.
March Black Belt Tag Testing
Our next testing will take place on Monday 18th March 2019 at Harrow CKD School's location in Claremont School. We wish all the black belts testing the best of luck. 😄👏
After School Club
If you feel your child's school would benefit from having Choi Kwang Do as an after school club then please discuss this with the SLT. Note that we will need contact details at the school to progress setting up a club.
Ladies Only Self-Defence Workshop
Saturday 23rd Feb was the first of our 3 hour LOSDW. 😄
What an amazing success. We hope all of those who attended went away feeling that they are a little more confident should the situation arise.
Keep an eye out for our next workshop on 14th September 2019.
Quote of the month
"It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell."
