CAMBOURNE TANG SOO DO
There was no break in the rain last night, luckily it was light rain. Well done to those that trained and see you next week, which should be our last outside session.
Class is on - we are going to take a chance, as there is a likely possibility of rain, but we hope there will be a break.
Normal outside location.
Inside classes will resume at Cambourne Hub from Monday 5th July 6.45-8.15pm (90min class)
Normal training fees apply.
There will be measures in place around distancing and hygiene and due to space limitation we will keep numbers under constant review.
More details to come.
Looking forward to another session outside tonight at the Cambourne Cricket pavilion.
Its going to be warm, so will be important to stay hydriated, so bring some water and for students with suits (dobaks), you can choose to wear a t-shirt.
Grading confirmed 11th July - Milton community centre 1pm
For Cambourne we will have a limited number of existing students that will be eligible, that are ready and have not been able to grade since before pandemic, instructors will decide who is ready. This will be a smaller than normal grading.
