New Syllabus

We've been introducing parts of the new syllabus since the beginning of this year. For most it is a simplification that will allow each student to improve the quality of their techniques. The next testing which is this month will take into consideration that we are transitioning from old to new.
Please spend sometime studying the new syllabus which is available through your student login on this link.

Changes to Colour Belt Testing Day

All testings for colour belts will now take place on a Sunday.

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 teamโ€™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 โ€“ min 7 classes

Colour Belt Testing Sunday 29th March

Next testing is coming up at the end of March on Sunday 29th. Don't forget that clocks go forward. ๐Ÿ˜ด
We encourage all students to ask their Parents/Guardians to stay and support them in their testing. Their encouragement during the defence and shield work really boosts the energy in the room.

If you are a white belt senior or above then you will need hand safety. For Yellow belt and above it's foot safety as well.
- Purchase your dipped foam hand safety like these from Blitz.
- Purchase your dipped foam foot safety like these from Blitz.
Small schools like Enfield CKD rely on reviews to attract new students so it would be really helpful if you could take a few minutes to complete a review. Please click on this link
