< ![if !vml]>< ![endif]>Dear All,
We are forming a BKG team with the intention of entering Karate competitions.
If you would like to take part please reply to this email. We will need parents
help as well with organising, transport and practice sessions, so again if any of
You parents want to help out then the same applies.
Although Karate competitions have two sides to the events, Fighting/Sparring and Kata, we will
concentrate on just the sparring to start with.
Before committing please be aware that being part of the BKG squad will require additional training sessions
which you will be required to attend. You will also need to purchase all the required protective
equipment, we will advise to the costs of this equipment asap.
The training sessions will be open to any BKG member to attend but attendance to these sessions
will not automatically qualify you to be a member of the squad as the BKG Instructors managing the
team will make the squad selections.
There are age/weight categories for most ages including our younger members also the
additional training sessions will consist of ‘squad training’ only and won’t have the elements
of the normal lessons.
