CFTS 2016 CALENDAR

The new CFTS event calendar for 2016 is here, please make a note of all the relevant CFTS events in your diary, pc, tablet, mobile phone, post-it note or the back of your hand!

CFTS host courses with visiting instructors for the pleasure and enjoyment of all its members. They are held to further enhance the knowledge and development of all students, regardless of grade, to assist them towards becoming an effective black belt. Some courses are subsidised by the licence fee.

The instructors booked are all masters in their field all of which are fully qualified, insured and hold current CRB clearance. Furthermore all the instructors are nice people and do not have egos nor are they greedy with the fee they charge.  It is nice to train under guidance of other instructors who complement our usual tuition in a relaxed environment alongside CFTS black belts.

For courses hosted by neighbouring associations, their student’s attendance is compulsory and they charge two or three times the fee that CFTS charges. Over the last few years the instructors of CFTS have done all they can to encourage our members to attend our courses voluntarily yet still we have some students that have not attended any at all. We in CFTS have always tried to stay away from making attendance compulsory.

However at the black belt AGM held in October 2011 we discussed the subject at great length. It was decided that all students of CFTS must attend a minimum of one course a year over the age of eleven and above the grade of yellow belt. This decision was arrived at for the benefit of the student to enhance their knowledge and ability. May we politely point out that when licencing a student agrees to the rules and any amendments made during their membership. Last year most of our students attended and enjoyed at least one course. If you would like to know more about them ask someone who attended.

Once a person has been to a course they will understand why the decision regarding attendance was been arrived at. If this decision gives you cause for concern please discuss the matter with your club instructor. If transport is an issue please raise that at the same time as we are sure assistance can be given.

The publishing and issuing of our events calendar early in the year is designed to make it easy for a student to attend. Many thanks for your support and understanding. We look forward to seeing you at the courses and the competition where we promise you a warm welcome and a great afternoon of martial arts.
