November 2017 Class Update

We're currently preparing a number of students for 1st and 2nd Degree Black Belt Gradings in December. Pre testing assessments have been mostly completed and to further assist these students we will be holding a series of additional preparation sessions on selected Wednesday's during November.

On Wednesday 1st, 8th 15th and 29th November class times will be amended slightly as follows:

6.00pm - 6.45pm: Children Class 1
6.45pm - 7.30pm: Children Class 2
7.30pm - 8.15pm: Brown and Black Belts (all ages)
8.15pm - 9.15pm: Teens & Adults

Please make a note of these class dates and times.

Brown & Black Belts should aim to attend all 4 preparation sessions as each one will focus on different syllabus components. Classes on Mondays will continue to take place at the usual times of 6.00pm, 7.00pm and 8.00pm - the changes above are for Wednesday classes only.

Thanks in advance to everyone for accommodating these temporary amendments to our schedule.

Regional Black Belt Training - September 2017

I thought I would share the official photo from last month's Regional Black Belt Training. This was the 3rd event and was co-hosted by Master Chandresh Lad (Harrow CKD) and myself. It was great to see a collection of students and instructors from a variety of Choi Kwang-Do schools, some travelling from as far as Milton Keynes and even Aberdeen!

As CKD black belts we all need to train, and training in your own school is great, but sometimes training with students and instructors outside of your school is even better.


1. Different students train differently. This forces you to step outside of your comfort zone.

2. Different instructors teach differently. There's a high chance that you'll learn something new, or look at something you already know in a new way.

3. It's fun! Think of it as a reminder that we are all part of the Choi Kwang-Do family.
