Key dates

There will not be a class on 21st April which is Easter Sunday.
The Colour Belt testing on the of 30th April has moved to Tuesday 28th May.

We have a few more changes to dates for Tag and Colour Belt testings later in the year so please visit our Members page for the latest dates.

If you've subscribed to our calendars using the links on the Members page then these changes should already be reflected in your phone/PC calendar.
However if you use Google or Android then you may have to manually force the refresh as by default it doesn't refresh. Note that Google will only return the copy of the calendar it holds so deleting and re-adding the calendar will not work unless you modify the URL to fool Google.
1. Open Google calendar and click on the settings icon which is normally along the top and looks like a cog or click on this link.
2. Scroll down until you get to the calendar you've already added and select it.
3. There will be an option now to unsubscribe. Choose this to remove the calendar.
4. Copy the URL from the list below to replace the calendar that you removed. Please include the '?1' as this fools Google into thinking it's a new URL. The number will need to change next time you refresh the calendar.
5. Go to the option in Google calendar to add a calender from URL or click on this link. Paste in the URL and click on Add Calendar. Hopefully this will bring in the updated calendar.

All Students should subscribe to the below calendar:

Black Belts and Brown Belts should also subscribe to the below calendar:

March Colour Belt Testing

CB Testing Mar
It was great to see such a high standard from all the students who tested in March. Well done especially to Naz who had her last testing at our School and will be going for her First Dan in June. ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ™Œ

March Black Belt Tag Testing

BB tag Test Mar
A good testing by all of our students. Congratulations to Mr Mistry has now achieved the rank of 3rd Degree Gold Tag. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿคฉ
Unfortunately Mr Tailor hadn't recovered from his injury to be able to test. Fingers crossed that Mr Tailor will be physically fit for the July tag testing.๐Ÿคž๐Ÿ™

Going Cashless

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 paid on the 1st of the month by standing order. Late payment will incur a ยฃ5 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.

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.
