Get to know your Instructors

Posted on: January 7th, 2021 by MFKent

Every Friday one of the Instructing team will be taking over the MF Kent Instagram account to answer any questions you may have.

You may wish to ask them about their own training, what got them started, any high / low points or just what is their favourite food? It is up to you!

We are starting this Friday (8th Jan) with Mr Levermore!

Tag-testing starts this week

Posted on: March 3rd, 2020 by David Finch

We will start tag-testing this week for the upcoming grading day on Sunday, 29th March.

As always, if we feel a student is ready to move up to the next level we will add a black tag to their belt and issue a grading letter.  Please do not worry if your son / daughter does not receive a tag.  We have plenty of time for you to practice at home or they may just need a little extra time.

Here are the details of the grading day:

  • Sunday, 29th March 2020
  • Canterbury Primary School, Canterbury
  • Mighty Matts – 9:30am (start)
  • Juniors & Adults – 10:15am (start)
  • Panel Grading – 12:00 – 3:00pm (for red-stripe – deputy black students only)
