There is a coloured belt grading planned on Sunday 25th November, 10am to noon (approx), at:
Lantern Lane Primary School, East Leake, LE12 6QN
Please ensure you arrive in good time, for a 10am start. I can’t guarantee late arrivers will be admitted.
Payment will be by due on Monday 19th November. Fee is £15 for white belt (10th kup) through to green belt / blue tag (5th kup).
Students who have a licence book to bring it with them to the grading.
Students put forward for grading will need to have learnt their theory. Theory sheets available here.
Littleover Taekwon-Do club is a not for profit club, but of course needs to be self funding. The fees we charge have remained unchanged for some years but now the time has come to revise them.
From September the main revisions are as follows:
The cost for Monday night has increased from £3 to £4 per student. Family pricing options are still available.
Black Belt / Senior belt session increases from £3 to £5 per student. (The extra is to compensate for the smaller class size).
A full list of our fees is contained here.
Any questions, please get in touch.
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.
To all students.
The theory sheets have been revised. Please take a look and download / print applicable theory sheets up to your grade.
One of the main changes is the removal of the “under 12” section. All students now need to learn the same theory.
Any questions, please ask.
A coloured belt grading has been scheduled for:
Sunday 29th April
from 1pm to 3pm
at Sutton Bonington Village Hall, St Annes Lane, Sutton Bonington, Leicestershire LE12 5NJ.
Please arrive in good time. There is car parking on site, at the rear of the village hall.
Cost is £15 for white belts (10th kups).
Katie or I will confirm if we think you are ready for grading at normal class on Monday 23rd April.
Remember to learn your theory. The theory sheets are being revised. In the meantime, you will not be penalised for any errors or omissions on the current sheets. There is one exception – please note Katie Bradford is now Katie Cureton!!!

Congratulations to those students who recently passed their grading. We hope everyone has a great summers break.
