Dan Grading Saturday 13th December - Nuneaton
Looking forward to this December Dan grading. The candidates have been training hard and consistently and look set to ace the test on the day...raising that bar, all the time!
Our end of year bash (not literally, we hope!) is on Friday 19th December at The Heart of England Social Club, Berkswell Road, Meriden from around 7.30pm. This launches our fundraising for taking a team to the USA next summer. No ticket price - just donations on the door. Lots of fun - raffles, tombolas, decorating the very special trees(!), pin the beard on Santa, our Xmas Story and anything else that the evil Laura Drayton can devise! We have live music from Rob Oliver and his pals, so get your dancing trousers on!

King Henry VIII Kidkick test
The end of term tag test had been planned for Monday 15th December. I have now been informed that the school is visiting Coventry Cathedral that day for the Carol Service, so I have moved the date to Monday, 8th December. I will still be at the school on 15th for those pupils who will return to school. Also, the stage will still be in situ for the Christmas play, so the grading will take place in the dining hall. Grading will begin at 4.30pm - parents are welcome to watch.

Thank you, Mark!!! Get along and support him if you can - his sessions are always good - and even better when there's Christmas fun to be had!

2015 is coming up fast!
Thank you for your great support throughout 2014 - we wouldn't be here without you! We're already busy planning the coming year for the ATMA. Seminars are on the agenda - including the sword seminar that had to be postponed and the tournament invitations are coming in thick and fast. We've already got plans to visit Belgium at the end of February for Master Stephane Huguier's tournament with GM Giacobbe and Master John Trudgill's Cardiff tournament in April, with others to be arranged for the rest of the year. New classes, new instructors, new content....always moving forward - it's the only way!
