It is important to attend every training session
to ensure that you don't miss out. The karate syllabus requires
dedication, discipline and a lot of hard work! Your Sensei will
help you by making the training as interesting and as much fun
as possible. Please arrive in time for the start of a training
session. There is a strong emphasis on respect with all martial
arts - it is (of course) considered disrespectful if you arrive
At certain times, some students may find their progress
is slower/quicker than expected - this is normal - some parts
of the syllabus are easier to learn than others - on the other
hand, some techniques can take years to master!
Do not be
disappointed with your progress; trust your Sensei to know which
parts of the syllabus you need to work on - this will be different
for every student. If you still have any concerns, you can talk
to your Sensei on your training days, or email
Sensei Nigel confidentially.
Karate School has a waiting list, if you miss training sessions,
your place may be given to someone else. Please try to provide your
Sensei with an explanation for any missed sessions to avoid this.
If you do intend to stop training, please notify your Sensei as
soon as possible to enable someone else to take your place.
