Federal Election is tomorrow 21 May 2022, remember to go and vote!
Anyone who is competing (and going for Dan grading for that matter) should probably train 3 or more times a week.
Competition One requires immediate/rapid action if you'd like to enter
Competitions Two and Three are "tell us if you're planning to attend because we need to prepare"
Here's what the next couple of weeks look like :)
There are still some spots in the holiday program available!
1) Taekwondo Intensive based on experience level (9.30-3pm)
NSW Discover Vouchers and NSW Parents can be used for the holiday program
We still have the regular timetable happening during the holidays
Excluding Easter/Anzac Day Long Weekend (22-25 April)
Charges will continue as normal but if you are not attending for 2 weeks or more during the holidays and need to suspend payments please let us know.
If you're only missing one week, please try to come to more classes on the week you're here.

On 6 March 2022 we made the trip down to the Shoalhaven to participate in the South Coast Championships.
It was a great event and we came away with some very impressive results including "Most Outstanding Competitor Junior Female" (Jennifer) and "Overall Club Point Score Winner: Poomsae"
The journey home took an extra hour thanks to the heavy rain which caused a small landslide, thick fog and temporarily broken down bus but we made it back safe and sound!
A big thanks to the parents for their support and food and congratulations to the team!

Due to Grading there are changes to classes/class times at the Chatswood Dojang between 11th Dec and 13 Dec.
Please check the booking site and continue to ensure you've booked in.
The second shutdown highlighted our need to create a better cash reserve however we are only making a $2.50/week change to the 1-2 classes per week plans. All other training fee prices will be staying the same.
The change will be implemented in 2 stages.
1. New students enrolling on or after 20 Dec 2021 new pricing is in effect immediately
2. Existing students who have enrolled before 20 Dec 2021 new pricing is in effect from 2nd April

Over 18 3+ classes per week stays at $60/fortnight
Family pass 3+ class add on stays at $10/student who trains 3+ times

Fundamentals (4-6 yo) 30min class stays at $75/5 classes
The last grading sessions for the year will be held 11-13 December
Please note there will be some cancellations of Chatswood classes due to the grading.
We have spent the last 2 weeks assessing the students and only some students will be invited to grade.
You will receive an email on Monday if you have been invited.
If you don't receive an invitation and think you should please let us know.
Due to the short time period between the last grading and coming out of lock down, some/most people will need more time before they can do the test.
