Classes for 2020

First class for Turkey Street school is Sunday 5th January.
First class for Southgate school is Thursday 9th January.

Key dates

Sunday 5th Jan First Choi Class for 2020
Sunday 26th Jan First Colour Belt Testing

Changes to Colour Belt Testing Day

All testings for colour belts will now take place on a Sunday. There are a number of reasons. Firstly traffic in the evenings around Turkey St makes it very difficult for students and judges to arrive on time. Secondly the size of our school has increased to a point that for this testing in November we needed to split it into 3 sessions. This makes it a very late night for all who took part.

Please go to our calendar page in the members section of our website and follow the instructions to added the subscription calendar to your phone.
If you have an iPhone and you've previously subscribed then the new dates will already be in your calendar.
If you have an iPhone and haven't subscribed then please click on the calendar icon for Colour Belt test dates to add it to your phone calendar.
If you have an android phone and you've previously subscribed then follow the instructions to first remove the previous calendar before adding the new calendar.

Any problems then please see one of the instructors.

Changes to Minimum Classes for Colour Belt Grades

A students eligibility to test depends on the senior leadership team’s view on whether the student knows their syllabus as well as the number of classes that they have attended. Going forward there will be increased focus on ensuring that each student is able to perform the basics correctly and hence we are allowing more time whilst the student is a Jul to perfect their techniques. The number of classes needed is listed below:
Jul to Jang- min 14 classes
Jang to next rank – min 7 classes
