Changes in class structure

Subject: Change of venue
To all students:
It has become apparent over the last few months that the dojang at Spit & Sawdust is not big enough for the Tuesday and Saturday classes and therefore we are going to make some changes which will result in having a much larger hall.
As from Tuesday 5th November Hogan’s Surbiton Taekwon-Do will merge with Hogan’s Kingston Taekwon-Do (Kinetic Taekwon-Do). This will give all the students in the local area the opportunity to train together.
Classes will be:
Tiffin Boys School
Tuesday 20:00 to 21:00 for senior blue belts or above.
Tuesday 21:00 to 22:00 for red belts or above
Steadfast Sea Cadets
Wednesday 17:30 until 18:30 for junior students (age 4 to 10)
Wednesday 18:30 until 19:30 for senior students (age 10+)
Tiffin Boys School
Sunday 10:00 until 10:45 for junior students (age 4 to 10)
Sunday 10:45 until 12:15 for senior students (age 10+)
Sunday 12:15 until 13:00 for red belts and above
The last class at Spit and Sawdust will be Saturday 2nd November.
Gradings will be moved to Sundays and held at Tiffin Boys school.
We feel this structure will allows us to focus more on the needs of the younger students. Adult blue belts and above will get additional time to concentrate on syllabus work specific to their grade as will red belts and above.
With the merger of Surbiton and Kingston combined teaching resources of both clubs are now available to all students of the new merged club. Under most circumstances we should have Master Hogan or Mr Home available to teach the senior (blue belt adults and above) classes.
The Hogantkd and Kinetictkd web sites will be updated to reflect these changes in the near future.
Could I also take this opportunity to ask all current students with Facebook accounts to request to join the Kinetic TKD group? This is a closed group only available to students and is where announcements, events etc. will be posted.
Thank you all in advance for working with us through this transition, which we believe will benefit all the current students and provide a solid base for the growth of Hogan's Institute of Taekwon-Do.
