To all 1st Kup (“Black tag”) students.
Black belt grading is rapidly approaching! I don’t have a date yet, but October or early November is likely.
There are only a few remaining black belt training sessions scheduled in before then. See this post. Potentially only 6, maybe 7, more sessions. I’m considering extending the Black Belt sessions to two hours (5:30 to 7:30) to get some extra practice in. Please let me know if this causes problems for anyone.
Get learning your theory! There is a lot to revise. You may find it helpful to look at the “senior theory” on the theory page. You can ignore the extra three pattern interpretations but you will need to know pretty much everything else.
Katie and I will need to decide in September who to put forward. If you can, I suggest you see if you can take advantage of extra training elsewhere, in particular during the school summer holidays. Look at this page for options.
Any questions, please ask.
