Monthly update on club events!

Docklands and Ilford karate Newsletter March 2018

Dear All,

Hopefully the bad weather has passed and you can get back to some regular training for the forthcoming gradings, courses and competitions. Unfortunately, the Singh Sabha Competition was cancelled and as soon as I know the rescheduled date I will let you know (juniors/peewees). It is now only a few weeks until the club gradings, so do ask to go through anything that has not been covered so far.

Licence renewals 2018

As you know there have been issues with the new online system, so we have temporarily reverted to the old “pay in the dojo” method and we then send off for processing. I will let you know as soon as the problems have been resolved, however by then I hope that you will have renewed. Prices of renewals £34 adult, £20 junior & new applications £37 & £23 respectively.
