Kenpo Karate News
September 22nd 2011
We wish to thank Mr Wedlake for his class during his stop over in London. It was great to see so many skilled students attend for the event.
Mr Wedlake discussed aspects of the Kenpo system and Mr Parker, breakdown of techniques and adaptation.
e were all very excited and really enjoyed meeting everyone.
We look forward to welcoming Mr Wedlake to our studios on the 22nd September 2011. I am sure there will be many questions asked by students regarding the Kenpo system. Please feel free to enquire about this event in London.
Congratulations to Wayne for successfully passing his Purple grading lately. This gut earned his belt, you could tell by the amount he was sweating. Well done Wayne
We hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Christmas News from Miss Diane Wheeler
Hi folks ,
James graded last night before Adam and I for his Orange Belt and did a very good job indeed. Well done James, it was thoroughly deserved!
Adam, Pat and I wish everybody a very happy xmas and prosperous new year. Hope to see you all around then, and perhaps a few others too! I would also like to thank Adam and Pat for all their efforts at the club throughout the past year - it's always much appreciated by me as much as by yourselves. I'd also like to thank you all, however, for supporting us - it would not be a club without you. THANKYOU!
Finally, Bryan from Liverpool, but resident in LA for years, sends his regards and best wishes too. He's a 5th Degree Black Belt in Kenpo, and may give class sometime next March if people are interested.
Stay safe and Happy Xmas
Belt Grading(November/December 07)
Great news - Gradings took place recently and Tim graded to Yellow Belt.
Tim has studied Kenpo before at anoth club but has recently resumed the art at our South London Club. It will be good to see Tim wearing the belt in the new year, well done.
Also James Forsyth graded to Orange. A very good grading and James put in loads of work for it. It showed. James will carry these skills well as he progresses through the ranks and I fear a strong opponent is nearing!

Sorry James I have not got a picture of you to put on the site.....ooops.
