News Update Monday 26th November

Training Focus

This week is Grading Week. That is all.

But seriously, that should be enough. Whether you are a Little Dragon, Junior, Cadet, Adult or a 50+ Student, Grading week should be something that you have been aiming towards all month.


Friday 7th December

Our annual Firewalk is just around the corner. Every year we raise money for children’s charities by getting sponsored to walk over burning hot coals! Anyone 14 or older can participate (under 18s with parental consent obviously) and the even never fails to leave everyone feeling amazing. If you have issues with motivation, confidence or self esteem then  you need to do this for yourself. Not only are we walking on fire but there will be a seminar on how to motivate yourself when you don’t want to do anything, how to feel happier on your darkest day and, ultimately, how to look in the mirror and like who you see.

Christmas Parties


Saturday 15th December.

We are going to May Sum in town for this year’s party, get there for 8:00 PM. If you are attending please fill out an RSVP for Sensei Med and get a deposit of £5 per head to us as soon as possible.

After the meal we will be meeting up with Sensei Phil and some of his students from the Westbridgeford school for more frivolity and Christmas cheer.


Friday 14th December.

The Kids’ parties will be at the usual class times for both Dragons and Juniors/Cadets. Fancy dress of course, and we will be awarding prizes for imaginative and detailed costumes. The focus is simply fun and lots of it, so bring along friends and let’s have a great time!
