On behalf of the team, I would like to thank you for your support, and wish you all a safe and happy break.
Well done to all those who graded on Sunday. May I say a special congratulation to little Katie who performed her way to distinction for her orange belt.
I would also like to congratulate Zuzanna and Dion who were awarded the Franklyn Doras Memorial trophy for their outstanding commitment to karate.
Thank you once again Sensei Austin for coming to grade our students. It was wonderful to see you looking so healthy as you recover from cancer; our prayers remain with you.
Looking forward to the presentations on Friday.
We can celebrate with those who have waited patiently to be reimbursed their grading fees, following the untimely death of Sensei Franklyn, on grading day, 12/12/17. For all of those affect, do please remember to send your acknowledgement of receipt of said fun.

I won’t be there on Friday, 28 June; my granddaughter’s birthday, so you can start to bring fees in on Sunday, 30 June.
