Lockdown Zoom Classes

Firstly all the instructors would like to say a big thank you to Mala who allowed us to use her community’s Zoom account for running these classes. Without her generosity the classes wouldn’t have run as smoothly.
Hopefully we will now be able to train in both halls but if we do need to hold some more Zoom classes then we’d ask, with the current sales on, if you can look to invest in improving your set up.

– If using a phone then think about investing in a phone tripod
– For a tablet or phone then something like this. Which will keep them stable and also allow correct angling for the camera.
– Wired or Bluetooth speakers for better sound as most seem to be struggling to hear us.
– If you are in a room with a TV and using your phone/tablet/Laptop then there are a number of cables that will allow you to link the them.
Android USB-C/Micro USB to HDMI
Apple Lighting to HDMI
Laptop will depend on connections available

– Some modern TV’s allow screen mirroring which is another option.

Licence & Insurance

Please ensure that you renew your CKD Licence and NAKMAS Insurance on time.
– The CKD Licence will have the issue date and so will expire 1 year after that date
– The NAKMAS Insurance will have the expiry date. NAKMAS have requested that we complete their form from their site. The link is here.

Please contact Mr Tailor if you have any queries about your License or Insurance.

December Dan, Tag and Colour Belt Testing

The next testing will be held on Sunday 20th of December where we will be looking to hold
Black Belt Dan Testing
Black Belt Tag Testing
Colour Belt Testing

Timings will be sent out nearer to the testing date. Students who are eligible based on the number of classes attended will be reviewed over the first 2 weeks in December. Hence it’s very important that you make every effort to attend the classes held in the halls.
Please note that we will be very strict on students knowing and executing their techniques to a high standard. To that end we encourage students to re-read their testing cards and make the corrections especially those of a senior rank.
Please check your Testing Status to see if you have attended enough classes to be eligible.

Training Fees

Training fees – please revert back to your normal amount with payment on the 1st of the Month.

ECKD Referral

Feedback for Students

It’s important as a School to ensure that there is a process that allows the Instructors, Students and Parents to provide and receive feedback especially as we can no longer accommodate for parents to view their children training. To that end we will start using a feedback form which will be provided to the student with a wallet.
Students need to

– bring the wallet to each class
– ensure that their parent/guardian reads and signs to say they have read the feedback
– store the last testing card in the wallet

Instructors need to
– ensure that they provide constructive feedback
– read and sign to confirm that they have read any feedback from parents/guardians
