On Sunday, 120 Juniors from across Bristol and Portishead graded in three busy sessions at High Down School.
Class times at DKK Frenchay are changing this term.
From Thursday 5th September there will be two classes available:
Juniors class (6+) will run from 4:00pm - 4:45pm
Seniors class (9+) will run from 4:45pm - 5:30pm.
Ages are given as a guide only and Juniors will move up to the Senior class when they are deemed ready by the instructor. Seniors are more than welcome to attend both classes should they wish to, there will be no extra charge for this.
New students are always welcome so get in touch if you have children who would like to give it a go. The 1st session is always free.
During the school summer holidays Caroline was invited to take a number of bootcamp sessions for junior aged children (7-11) for The Fitquest, an adult fitness company based in Coalpit Heath. The sessions were enormous fun and the kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves despite working VERY hard!

Sempai Simon Mackown is opening a brand new DKK juniors club based at St Annes Church in Brislington, Bristol.
Classes will be for children aged 7+ and start on Saturday 7th September.
The class will run from 9:30am-10:30am except for one Saturday in the month when the session will be 2pm-3pm. This is due to other Church activities.
For more information or to book a free trial session please contact Simon directly.
Arrived home about 20 minutes ago. A long day but so worth it seeing so many small and not so small karate kids training hard. It always amazes me how well they perform on the day. We'll relax for a short while but not for too long. It was great to see Lewis achieve his probationary black belt (Shodan Ho). He performed well on many aspects of the grading, especially his throws, weapons defence and sparring the adult black belts, as did Larry who is now a brown belt. Remember what ever your grade you did well. Without my black belts and other grades there the grading could never go a head, so a huge thank you to them.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend. See you at training...maybe even a new parent or two...be inspired by the kids!
Sensei Lewis will be running a karate fun day at High Down School in Portishead on Saturday 4th May. All juniors are welcome. For more information see the flyer below or contact Sensei Lewis directly.
As the village hall is being used for elections on Thursday 15th November, training in Frenchay will take place on the common in front of the school. We will aim to start at 1545 and finish at 1645 before it gets too dark!
Please ensure children wear warm clothes and bring a drink with them.
The Frenchay club Student of the Month award for October was awarded to Zac Webb for continued hard work and enthusiasm. Well done Zac!
