Launch of NEW syllabus and online curriculum videos

Posted on: August 4th, 2020 by David Finch

NEW MF Syllabus coming soon!

We are very excited to be launching the brand new MF syllabus for all ages.  Some students may have noticed a few extra drills and / or techniques being taught these last two weeks and this is the start.

We will be explaining more to all students as we embark on this after the week break but the most important thing to note is that this is a very exciting change but one that will not disrupt a student’s learning or progression.

New syllabus now available online

The new syllabus has been filmed for all age groups and is now available to purchase online.  As well as the syllabus, this new online membership will be an ever-growing library of videos to help a students Martial Arts journey.  The options for you are:

Maidstone classes returning

Posted on: July 23rd, 2020 by David Finch

Maidstone classes re-starting – 31st July

We are delighted to announce that our MF Maidstone School will be able to re-open from Friday, 31st July.

As with many centres across the UK, difficult decisions have had to be made and sadly Welcome Gym in Maidstone had taken the decision not to hire out their facilities to external parties.  Therefore, we have moved location just 3.5 miles up the road to what will be a better facility long term.

Our new facility is: DITTON COMMUNITY CENTRE, AYLESFORD, ME20 6AHclick here for map

This facility offers:

  • better, safer parking
  • more space for the future once the school starts to grow
  • safer facility for younger students

Our timetable will be very similar:

  • Mighty Matts: 4:30 – 5:00pm
  • Juniors: 5:15 – 6:00pm
  • Black Belt Club: 6:15 – 7:00pm
  • Adults: 7:00 – 8:00pm

As with all our venues all students will need to:

  1. Read the COVID-Safe guidelines for this location (on the “MF Kent Online Training” Facebook group page / this website)
  2. Book your space for every lesson (via this website)

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch and, in the meantime, I very much look forward to seeing you all again face-to-face.

Herne Bay – change to Saturday classes

Posted on: July 15th, 2020 by David Finch
HERNE BAY CLASSES – Saturdays
Due to numbers I have made a small tweak to the JUNIOR & ADULT timetable.
From this week (18th July) they will now run as follows:
  • Juniors: 9:45 – 10:30am
  • Adults: 10:45 – 11:30am
You do not need to alter your bookings if you have made them already.
REMEMBER: if your membership is for 2+ classes per week (not including Black Belt Club / Weapons) then you are allowed to book in to 2 classes per week (not on the same day).
The Wednesday timetable will remain as it is for now.
Regards
Master Finch
