JULY 2010 - HOLS FOR SOME & TRAINING FOR OTHERS While I was away during July the classes continued and improvements all round have been made. However, itâ€™s a sad month as we say goodbye to two members moving away from the area. Yes, I had a great time on my holiday - thank you. In my absence all classes were run by Mr Colin Potter, 2nd Degree, and by all reports they were excellent classes too, as I knew they would be. Banstead TaeKwon-Do Students benefit from the strong support of two instructors, me (Mr Davis, 3rd Degree) and Mr Potter and at all times there is top class instruction available at all times. We also benefit from being part of the Extreme TaeKwon-Do group run by Mr Dennis, 6th Degree, and are thankful for all the support that brings.
Can I please remind everyone that you need sparring gear now. Sparring is how we test different aspects of our training, it is also how we can develop certain attributes of our personalities. Please talk to me to order what you need.

TKD SUMMER CAMP
Dates: 16th - 21st August 2010 There are still spaces for the Extreme TaeKwon-Do Summer camp for yellow belts and above aged between 6 and 16 years old. This really is an opportunity that shouldn’t be missed. The week will cover all aspects of TaeKwon-Do including patterns, sparring and self defence but also it is a chance to meet students from the other Extreme TaeKwon-Do schools that Mr Dennis runs. It also is an important opportunity to be under Mr Dennis’ expertise. Don’t forget there is the chance to grade at the end of the week and I know you’ve got your eyes on that. Talk to me about this.
