Hello Parents and Students of Fusion Martial Arts @ St. Jude’s/Canberra Montessori!
As advised in our first email of the year, our first grading of the year is next Friday April 19th from 6:15pm to 8:30pm at Canberra Girls Grammar Junior Campus in Deakin. This is the first Friday of school holidays and I have been advised that as such, many of you will be out of town While I am actively encouraging everyone to attend (even if you are NOT grading) this regional grading, we will also hold a grading in-class on Friday May 3rd from 3:30-4:30pm (or regular class time).
On Wednesday we did an overview of the grading requirements in-class, so everyone received a refresher. In general, I would suggest to all students hoping to grade to review their patterns and exercises (see: http://fusionmartialarts.com.au/resources.php#Videos ).
Even if you are not grading, I would like to see everyone who can make it there on the day for the experience of a regional grading. There is no fee if you are not grading.
If you are hoping to grade, you will need to bring in your Green Book this Friday!
If this is your first grading and you haven’t received your Green Book yet, don’t worry! I will have them in-class on Friday for our new students. In the meantime, you can review the Green Book (along with a number of other resources) online here: http://fusionmartialarts.com.au/resources.php#GreenBook
The Grading Fee is $55 per student payable separate from your quarterly fees (they are NOT direct debited). This payment can be made directly to Instructor Nick in class (please make any cheques out to “Fusion Martial Arts”) or via the direct deposit details. If you decide to use the direct deposit, make sure you include the students name in the memo field!
Account Name: Fusion Martial Arts
Acct No: 366421
If you are not successful at the grading, it is continued until the next grading (which means you will not repay the grading fee). Those of you not wishing to grade are still very much encouraged to attend the grading to get a good workout as well as to encourage your fellow students.
NOTE: This venue differs from the original email/post.

I hope I’ll see you there!
