BANSTEAD TAEKWON-DO

AUG / SEPT / OCT 2010 - NEW STUDENTS & TOPHIES Here’s the first newsletter of the new season: I am proud to say that Banstead TaeKwon-Do is going from strength to strength as a club and in terms of student learning - well done to all. It’s a busy time of year, the last quarter, September onwards with summer holidays coming to an end, school starting again then it’s almost half term before you blink and then Christmas and New Year and BOOM it’s 2011. It’s also a time where you can achieve great things and I congratulate two groups of people: 1) Those that have remained a Banstead TaeKwon-Do Student, and 2) those new students that started in September 2009. Starting a new activity is hard, starting a martial art is harder, and starting a martial art in an established club is harder still - so you can feel very proud of yourselves, well done. Here’s looking forward to a successful last quarter of 2010, to gradings, seminars and competitions. - James Davis, Instructor Banstead TaeKwon-Do
