We hope the New Year finds you fit and refreshed, and ready to recommence your training at your chosen Dojo.
The new CFTS year has a great deal in store with plenty to look forward to so please ensure you check the calendar and make a note of the important dates and events.
Courses planned for 2015 include a Shotokai course with Harada Sensei, a Kata Bunkai course with Sensei Andi Kidd, a Bo Kumite course with Shihan Wayne and, to, finish the year, a Ju-Jitsu course with Shihan Holmes.
The CFTS annual Competition is in April this year, so get working on your kumite, individual kata, team kata and bo kata - a great deal of effort is put into hosting the Competition so let's make sure it has all our support. If you are interested in entering a team, start now and give yourselves plenty of time to practice.
Kyu grades - Get your training underway now to ensure you are ready for future gradings; as Renshi Kidby says, train at every session like it is your grading. Only then can you be seen to be ready.
Dan grades - now is the time to ensure your C.V is on the website and up to date. There are still a few missing! Also, review your portfolio and make sure that is up to date at all times. Remember, portfolios can be requested at very short notice so keep working on yours!
2015 promises to be another great year and you can help by supporting your club and the Federation by attending the events and also by spreading the word about CFTS to friends and family. Let's get more new students across all clubs.
Once again, a very warm welcome to 2015 with CFTS !
