Young Gloves News
What a year!    Firstly can I just say a big thank you to all the students and parents that have supported Young Gloves over what has been a very tough time it so appreciated J
Thankfully things are getting better now with life getting back to normality more and I hope that we can all work together to raise the club back to where it once was and see more and more future successes.   On that note, as promised here’s a list of the events coming up for all club members to get involved with and enjoy.   I hope that you will join me in making each one a huge success.

Sun 29th Aug  5k Walk/Get together for Smile for Joel   Last year this was a massive success with members and friends coming together for a walk in aid of this charity.    It’s not far or quick so everyone can take part walking at your own pace.  We meet  at Trimpley Reservoir 12.00.

Back To Karate From Mon 6th Sept – Can’t wait to see you all soon !

Self Defence Course 26th Sept   Hosted by WMP Personal Trainer and Young Gloves Instructor Samantha Thomas giving extensive knowledge and Personal Protection skills to 13 and over.   This is not limited to club members, family and friends are more than welcome, and I really feel it will be a great benefit to all, especially highlighting the fact that a female CAN defend themselves given the right physical and mental skills and experience.  The cost is £10 per person in aid of Smile For Joel.
Places are limited and booking can be done via the clubs website.

Basic 1st Aid Course 10th Oct   This will give such valuable life saving skills to 10 years olds and over.   I really can’t over etherise the value of these skills, it just a must for everyone to attend.
Again this is not limited to Young Gloves members, and if children are attending they need to be accompanied by an adult.  Cost is £10 in aid of Smile for Joel.
Places are limited and booking can be done via the clubs website.

Karate Grading Mon 8 Nov – Sat 14th Nov Now that the whole of the Young Gloves Syllabus can be practised we have the opportunity to grade all members of the club to their next rank is they can demonstrate the desired requirements.

Interclub karate competition 28th Nov
   Back by popular demand is our very own karate competition where everyone is invited to come together to show their amazing skills together.
Always the highlight of the year for Young Gloves, with everyone goes home happy having won a medal for taking part, trophies given for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th.
Raffles, tombola’s, and other activities held on the day.
This is for absolutely for every member, with everyone split into male and female categories defined by grade, age where appropriate.
We have been effected by Covid and as such there may not be as many entering this year, so I feel it’s really up to every member and family to help make this the success of previous years.

Lastly  Now that things have gone back to normal can I remind students that in order to progress, be successful in gradings and for fill their full potential in karate, from around green belt (6th Kyu) all students need their own sparring kit, and be training twice a week.
