Welcome to the Enfield CKD July Newsletter:

June has gone quickly with the hoped for ‘Freedom Day’ being delayed. Fingers crossed that from 19th July it will hopefully be back to normal and so students will return to training as per the number of classes they are subscribing to. Please contact Mr Tailor if you want to amend the number of weekly classes that you can train.
NAKMAS has confirmed that we can now allow under 18 year olds to use shields. As most of our classes are mixed then it will only be in Tuesday’s children’s class that we will look to introduce shield work for now.

Hand and Foot Safety

The current syllabus requires students carrying out defence drills to make light contact. This hasn’t been possible since March 2020 due to Covid restrictions. These will be lifted shortly and so students will require hand and foot safety depending on belt. The equipment can be purchased from wherever is most convenient for you.

– White belt senior and above, dipped foam hand safety.
– Yellow belt and above, dipped foam foot safety.

The Playwell site has a number of gloves. Below is an example with the CKD logo but any of a similar style will be permitted. Boxing gloves are not allowed.

dipped foam gloves
The Playwell site has a number of boots. Below is an example with the CKD logo but either this style or the dipped foam style will be permitted. These are designed to be generally worn without shoes and the fit needs to ensure that the toes are always covered. If wearing shoes then a larger size will be needed plus adjustments will generally need to be made. Please discuss this with an instructor in class if you want to do this.

Changes to Uniform

Many of you are aware that there have been several changes within CKD over the last few months.
This is to ensure that all the schools worldwide are following the same protocols and training from one school to another should be no different.

Their most recent change has been to the uniforms, details of which can be found below.

Note: any new uniforms will come with standard black trousers. I can order just trousers on your behalf via Playwell (£11/pair) or you can buy black cotton or polycotton elasticated trousers via Amazon

or eBay
