November Newsletter

19 Nov

Dear Parents,

It is that time of year again! If you are already starting to think about ideas for Christmas presents then Crouching Tiger Karate have a range of merchandise that may interest you.

If you would like to order any of this equipment for your child (or yourself) then please let me know by replying to this email as soon as possible. Please also let me know if you want it to be a surprise and then I can arrange to give it to you discreetly. 

If you are thinking of buying sparring equipment then I recommend it for all Blue Belts and above. If your child is over 8 years old then they can start sparring at any time, even if they are a white belt. The helmets come in red or black and the gloves come in red, white or blue. I will estimate sizes and you can always exchange them if I get the size wrong. 

T-Shirts and Hoodies can be made in the following sizes:

3-4yrs, 5-6yrs, 7-8yrs, 9-11yrs, 11-14 yrs, s, m, l, xl. 

Karate suits are sized in centimetres  (90cm, 100cm, 110cm).

If you want to buy rebreakable boards then please make sure that a responsible adult is holding the board and supervising the practice. 

Please see below for the range and prices:

Rebreakable Boards. Yellow (Intermediate) £18 or Black (Advanced) £22
