Well done to all involved. Thank you to all the families and friends who came to support, and a special thank you to Lena Wiejak who came to be a partner for her brother.
So much appreciation for event organiser Mrs Helen Hall (who was also part of the earlier assessment process), Chief Examiner Technical Director Mr Drew N. Hall, and Examiners London Director Mr Jon Alagoa and LCTKD Co-Founder Neil R. Hall.
We hope that the final examination for Black Belt candidates next year will be in London Chinatown in November or December.

We are thrilled to have started teaching the specially designed Chinatown Dragon Form in our Tai Chi classes for beginners.
At the moment, expect to see the #perceptionfree tagline on things we share, especially on social media. This is because we are running a campaign to encourage people to put aside their preconceptions about who different martial arts are for. Too often, people rule themselves out of doing something they would love to do because they think - or other people have told them - it isn't really for them. This is almost always a misconception. So we want to encourage people not to be put off by what they suppose or by what other people say, and to let themselves live their dream. Watch the video with Lisa and Louise to get a flavour of the campaign.
Now, you can find out about our #preconceptionfree campaign on its very own page.
Cotswolds and Vale: Saturday 7th December.

We have lots of great promotions going to help you get in to martial arts with us or to get more out of your martial arts.
