Radcliffe Thursday

Good morning

This is my last from last week. Everyone on it has first priority this week. You have 24 hours to confirm you spot.

I have people NOT on this list and September new starters – that will have to be turned away. So please make every effort to book and turn up or I might cry.

I’ll take better details when you turn up so we can book in a better way (I shread all details every July)

Karate Resumes

A swab revealed my son has no COVID. We were able to visit a doctor and it’s more than likely a viral infection. He’s poorly, but recovering.

Karate class can now resume from Monday 27th.

Remember if you are unwell or have any of the main Covid symptoms. Please do not attend.

Monday Rushcliffe School. 5:30-6:30pm
Tuesday Rushcliffe School. 7-8pm
Wednesday Ladybay 4-6pm
Thursday East Bridgford Village Hall 4:30pm St Marys Radcliffe 6-8pm
Friday Ladybay 4-6pm
Saturday WB Scout Hut. 9am- 12pm


This is not a message I wanted to send.

My son unwell and running a temperature and therefore under the rules we are isolating until the
屢3rd October屢
unless the ‘world beating test’ becomes available

With the classes back up and running after so long and so many new members – This is a gutting thing to do.

But it is the right thing to do

I will put classes online for a while again… But today is organising, cancelling and refreshing Web pages.

Radcliffe Return

We could be back as early as next week at Radcliffe St Marys (if approved)

There are some conditions.

Classes are limited to 12, so I had the idea to run 2 classes (obviously with the wife’s permission 😉)

6-7pm. (Pick up 5mins early for cleaning)

Some of our students are getting older, so may appreciate separation.

Book in.
Can’t wait to see you

Dojo Kun.

There are five rules of Shotokan Karatedo equally weighted. These rules are designed to work along your technical moves to seek deeper understanding of yourself and free yourself from things holding you back from life.

Usually the first recited rule:

Seek perfection of character.
一、人格 完成に 努める こと
hitotsu, jinkaku kansei ni tsutomeru koto

One thing I’ve learnt over the years is that the right people on your team – your circle of friends and particularly your loved ones- can help you to be better versions of yourself.

Your respect for them allows you to listen to your shortcomings and their criticism is a valued part of character growth. Not that you change everything. But you can at least acknowledge it and hopefully work past these things that hold you back 😂

A student’s development is intertwined with their instructor’s (and peer’s) feedback.

I hope that the school is building role models who are respected: Criticism from those we respect, especially those who give regular positivity have more chance to met with reflection (not always immediately!).

Successful partnerships helping each other to develop.

This is your journey, but you’re definitely not on your own.

So let me help you

Seek perfection of character.

Timetable week commencing 14th

All classes from last week are available this week

Wednesday + Friday ladybay 4-6pm
Thursday East Bridgford 4:30pm
Saturday West Bridgford 9am-12pm

This week we have the addition of
Rushcliffe School Tuesday at 7pm

Monday+Tuesday WB Infants

I would be heartbroken to lose WB Infant school as it’s our longest hall hire, but totally respect any venues right to assess safety, but I’m still hopeful.
If there is a problem, from next week I can run the Monday class from Rushcliffe School, but I’m struggling for Tuesday at the moment.

🥋🥋If Monday Rushcliffe (around the same time 5:45) is something you can do, could you let me know ASAP.🥋🥋

Tues+Thursday Radcliffe

I’m hoping to return, but this is being run through committee at the moment. I’m sure I’ll have a decision soon.
