Junior Black Belt Class-Fridays at 6pm

Due the recent promotion, we have added a special class to our Friday night schedule. This class is for Lion and Tiger Black Belts only. Tigers are reminded they must train twice a week to meet the requirements for promotion. Attending two classes on the one nights qualifies as one training session.

The class starts at 6pm until 6.30pm at the East Geelong Dojo. This class will be run by Senpai Julia.
Please see Senpai Julia to organise a Jo at a cost $25.

Tiger Black Belt Promotion-July 2016

Congratulations to the following students who attained their probationary Tiger Junior Black Belt- Kouhai Alistair, Ginger, Lachlann, Callum, Lachlan, Darcy, Anabelle and Aiden.

All performed strongly with determination and great spirit! Well done!

Leopold, Torquay and Herne Hill Dojos

Due to student numbers for the Dragon students being difficult to decipher, many students classes have not been entered. In future we ask parents to please enter your child's number on the attendance sheet. Thank you.
