How To Tie Your Belt

Tying your belt can be tricky, so we have put together a step by step guide to help you learn. Click on each of the images below to open them up larger or print the PDF below for easy reference at home.

Please Note:

  • Junior White Belts are often shorter to make them easier to tie, so if your belt isn’t long enough to wrap round twice, wrap it round once and jump straight to Step 5.
  • Black Belts need to finish with your name on the right hand side, so make sure at Step 2 that your name is on the outer piece.

Black Belt Training Session

Black Belts that missed the July Patterns Course can now book a place on one of the October Pre-Grading Training Sessions to get their stamp by going here. This must be done in advance; you will not be able to turn up and pay on the day.

Black Belts who attended the July Patterns Course do not need to attend but may wish to do so for additional training.

All students entered into the upcoming Black Belt Grading are automatically registered and do not need to apply.

Please note that there are different venues and dates available, so please select the one that works best for you. Please keep an eye on your emails after applying in case of any change in start time.

Lastly, if you don’t have an up-to-date licence slip in your Black Book please see us next lesson for your slip.

Bristol Half Marathon 2022

As many of you know, Mr Newman and I will be running the Bristol Half Marathon this year in memory of my Mum and his Dad who both lost their lives to cancer.

We’ve set up a JustGiving page to raise money for Marie Curie UK who were amazing in caring for my Mum. We have already received some donations but would love to raise more. Please consider donating if you can so that more people who face a terminal illness can receive the wonderful support and care that Marie Curie provide.

Thank you 🙂
