York Newsletter July 2016

4th July 2016 | York

Managers Welcome

Proud to be from Roko
I just wanted to say a huge well done and thank you to all of you who gave up your time to support the two Cancer Research UK events over the last weekend In June. Lynn & Jo from the management team worked especially hard; they put in a lot of work organising things and gave up their time on both days to support a great cause & also promote the club to over 7,500 participants over the 2 days. Hopefully we will be invited to support the event again next year after this year’s success! Well done to all.

Gary Jepson
General Manager

Junior Activity Summer Timetable
The summer schedule is out now for you to organise your Children’s fitness classes, to ensure you still get your workout over the 6 week summer period!!  We have some exciting classes for the children to try from Cheer Dance to Kick boxing and Boot Camp to Gymnastics!  There is a daily water fun session, Mon-Fri 10:30-11:30am, for you and the family to enjoy a splashing time in the pool together.  

Kid’s Kick Boxing
We have a NEW company that will be delivering kick boxing sessions over the summer holidays.  These sessions will be on Tuesday mornings 9:30-10:30am in the Mind & Body studio for 5-11year olds. The session will cost £3 per child. This is to be paid before the sessions starts when Ryan takes the register.  Below is a small piece about Ryan and what his classes entail.  He is amazing with the kids and a funny guy!

Hi, I’m Ryan and I started Martial Arts at the age of 5.  My parents took me to Karate lessons as they thought I was too small and the “runt of the litter”, so I would need to learn how to defend myself.   I was nervous initially but I picked it up very quickly and by the age of 11 I was very confident and the first person at the club to get a Black Belt.  Two years later I received my 2nd Dan Black Belt.

To extend my skills I joined Longs Black Belt Schools, which is a Kickboxing academy, and within a year they noticed my Skills and graded me straight to a black belt. I became the WKKC National Champion in 2015 and have gained 4 National Silver medals this year.  I will be competing in the World Championships in Italy this October as part of Team England.

I have been teaching at Haxby Martial Arts for the last year and a half and will be setting up my own club after the summer.

Join me for my classes at Roko where I will be teaching 5-11 year olds basic self-defence techniques through a variety of fun and interactive games.

If you require further information about the Kick Boxing classes please contact jarcher@york.roko.co.uk or ryangarbuttjrs@gmail.com
