Summer 2021

Dear Students,

 

I would like to start this announcement by thank you for your continued interest, support, and patience love this last fourteen months or so.

These have been, and still are, unprecedented times, with much sadness, loss and heartache, balanced with constant uncertainty but, it does seem that some normality is beginning to return.

With infections and casualties reducing, while immunity and vaccines increasing, we have finally been allowed to once again open our doors.

Over the last year much has happened, including a change of venue for the N.W.C.K.F.A., moving from our previous full time school in Armley to a hourly hired room, but within a fabulous venue. 

One day we will go back to a permanent home, but for now, having the place sit empty for most of the time was simply not utilising the space as it should have been used.

I have always said that the school is not the walls surrounding it,

It is the students within it.

Earlier this year we celebrated (via Zoom) our 30th birthday as a school and I look forward to the next 30 years as we continue to grow in strength and again hopefully, in numbers.

Therefore, with this in mind, I would like to start welcoming back all my old students, those of you who had to put your training on hold during the pandemic.

I will be holding off (for now at least) on taking fresh students, at least using the previous format, just until we are fully functional again.

I am in the process of arranging something whereby I can hold these classes as a separate training course rather than training alongside regular classes, I will announce this formally when it is in place.

Over this last year I have kept up to my teaching, giving well over 200 classes via a Zoom link, please note, this additional training will continue as a support to your training, classes will run as this:

Monday. 7.00 – 8.00pm (Livestream session via Zoom)

Tuesday. 6.30 – 8.00pm and 8.00 – 9.30pm (Normal school class)

Thursday. 7.00 – 8.00pm (Livestream session via Zoom)

Saturday. 11.00am – 12.30pm (Normal school class)

A quick reminder of our NEW ADDRESS:
