Dear Parents and Karateka,
Term Dates:
The last classes to be taught this term will be on Monday 10th December.
Classes will start again on Tuesday 8th January.
Please note that classes in Kew Green and Ravenscourt Park run in accordance with the school club calendar and not the above dates.
Full term dates can be found on our website:
Colour Belt Gradings:
There is one more colour belt grading this term:
Wednesday 12th December
St. Luke’s House, 270 Sandycombe Road, Kew, TW9 3NP
5:00-6:00pm – All Grades
If you have received a grading invoice envelope or an email to confirm selection then you are welcome to attend this grading. Please email me to confirm your attendance if you have not done so already as spaces are limited.
There will also be a grading on Sunday 27th January at 10:00am in Mortlake. Full details will soon be confirmed.
Some of our younger members and beginners have been doing their gradings within the class so this does not apply to you as you are not expected to come to a separate grading session.
There are lots of children that are very nearly ready to do a grading and I am aware that it has been a long time since the majority of our students did their last grading. Please let me assure you that lots of progress is being made and that if they keep on working hard their opportunity to promote to the next belt will certainly come. It is also worth noting that once their next belt is achieved it should not take such a long time for the following belt because most of the hard work will have already been done.
BKA Licence Books and renewal slips:
The red licence books and renewal slips have finally arrived so all new licences will be given out in the classes this week. Please be assured that if your licence was due to be renewed on 1st November then your licence has been renewed and you do have a valid licence despite not having your renewal slip yet.
Outstanding Fees:
I will be sending emails and/or giving invoice envelopes for any outstanding fees. If you can make an online transfer then please put your child’s full name as the reference and use the following account details:
Equipment Last Call:
I sent an email last week with the price list for equipment (expertly modelled by my daughter Kara). I still have stock of hoodies, t-shirts, re-breakable boards, sparring kits and suits so if you would like to order anything before the end of term then please email me asap.
Happy Christmas! 
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and enjoy the festive period. I am sure that we all deserve a break and a chance to enjoy some family time 🙂
Yours sincerely,
Sensei Ben Pethick
