We’re delighted to announce that, as from Thursday 6 January 2022 we are starting a new Thursday morning class at 8am at Halstow Primary School in Greenwich. There may be some (karate-based) games but otherwise the karate is the same as our main classes and the belts are the same. And, naturally, the instructor is insured, DBS-checked and has a first aid certificate. **For existing Halstow parents, please note, Senshi Karate is new at the school and it is not the same instructor you had previously**
Is your child a pupil at the school? Book their place by contacting Frank by email. If you want to train alongside your child or if your child is not at Halstow, then contact Frank to ask about spaces at our regular Saturday or Wednesday classes. Here are the details:
- Years 1-6 only. Sorry, this is not available to Reception children.
- Thursdays, 8.00am 6 January – Thursday 31 March 2022. There is no class during half term, 17 February.
- The school office does not open until 8.30am so make sure your child is not late as otherwise they might not be able to get in until the office opens!
- Due to the staggered start times, we will release the children in time for their year’s registration.
- Your child must turn up at school wearing their karate uniform and then get changed into school uniform afterwards.
- The first class on 6 January is free. Then for the remaining 11 classes, it’s £7 per class or £6 per class if you pay for the term upfront. So, £77 pay as you go or £66 pay upfront. We recommend you pay upfront to avoid your child having to carry cash. You will also benefit from a discount which means your child will get nearly 2 free classes.
- Please note, payments are non-refundable. If we are unable to run a class, we will carry over credit for that class to the next term.
- Your child will need a karate uniform. If they have one already from when they used to train, they may continue to wear this or you can buy one yourself. Or we can supply one for £20 with the Senshi Karate logo.
- As with our other students, you’ll need an annual licence from our governing body Shotokan Nation for your child’s insurance & permission to grade. This is £25 per year.
- We run belt gradings twice a year. We will put your child forward for their belt grading when they are ready. These gradings might be held at our main site in Charlton Meridian Sports Club. Gradings are normally £15 and, for those who pass, this includes their belt and certificate.
