It is great to see all of our students coming along to train with us and it is a good sign that they are making progress and enjoying themselves. We have also seen many new students joining us at the beginning of the year. Many thanks to everyone for all of your effort which you put into karate, we appreciate your dedication and commitment. Just don’t forget to keep training hard and as often as you can.

Competition and Grading
This year will be another busy for us at Tora Karate. We will shortly hold a Dan grading for senior students from both our dojo and also from other clubs. Everyone has been preparing for this milestone for quite some time. We are also working on our next competition with our friends from Crouching Tiger and then shortly after we will have our next kyu grading. It would be good for all of those students who wish to take part in the grading to also participate in the competition; it was a great fun last year for everyone and it would be shame to miss it!
Change to fee structure
We would like to encourage all of our students to attend more classes a week and we also offer a discount to their family members. Therefore, we have decided to simplify fees and streamline them with our new accounts system. Please note there will be slight change to way you can pay, all monthly fees will go to our account by bank transfer (no Direct Debit, no cash, no cheques). The system will generate automatic emails about your payment status and the whole process will be simplified and automatized.
