LTK AUGUST NEWSLETTER

So the Summer Holidays are in full swing! If you are going away on holiday or just staying here in sunny UK, have a great summer and make it memorable! LTK is still open for 2 weeks during August plus an extra training session then we close (Sensei Lee needs a break!) Then back to it on Monday September 3rd with a month full of karate stuff! Full details below.

July Student of the Month:
Now that we have completed another month training we can award the student of the month at each dojo! 100% attendance, working hard, being a great partner, respectful amongst other attributes make up the award. LTK is more than just kicking and punching! 
Congratulations to:  Harri Davies & Lyra Chapman of Llanidloes / Olivia Powell & Ben Rogers of Presteigne / Maddie Cross of Weobley 

Extra Training Session
These are for ALL students, ALL ages and ALL grades and put on to help you progress with your karate and will take place on  Saturday August 11th 10am-12noon. £10 at Presteigne. Free of charge to those that have pre-paid August karate fee by standing order and need to make up lessons.

Sparring Training
Recently I have had enquiries from students at all of the clubs expressing an interest in developing their fighting/sparring skills further with a view to possibly take part in tournaments/competitions. I am happy to make this available BUT students who wish to do this must commit to the process as training for this part of Karate takes commitment as it is not a topic we can cover every week in class. Emails have been sent out to those interested and it will be on Saturday 11th August 10am-12noon. £10 at Presteigne Sports Centre.

August Dates
The LTK training timetable at the dojo changes during August, we are open for the first 2 weeks of the month then we close. Any missed classes that have been pre-paid for by standing order can be made up at any club, also the extra training session in August can also be used.
