2014 End of Year Newsletter

Welcome to this review of 2014 - 2014 has been a really fantastic for San Shou Kuan and we thought we would recount some of the highlights of the year......
  • We have a membership secretary.  I suspect you all will have heard from or know of Tanja.  She has been a great addition to our team and Dave and I are delighted to have her on board.
  • 2014 Sparring League. 27 participants over three events, our league winners were Miguel and Elodie.  This was a great start to our first year of competition; we had participants from SSK, ZSK, Kyokushinkai Karate and Kickboxing.
  • Two new Second Degree (dan) Black Belts Jane and Shamiso; four more First Degree (dan) Black Belts Wai, Michael, Tayyaba, and Tommy
  • Nick and Elodie picked up Silver and Bronze respectively in the BCCMA British Novice Sanshou Championships
  • GB Squad: Invited to participate and send entries to the Great Briton squad for the 2015 World Championship in Jakarta Indonesia
  • Workshops Conducted two revision workshops and held our first destruction workshop all of which proved very successful
  • New Classes We have launched new classes in Oxford and Rickmansworth (our first class in a school timetable)

What's in store for 2015

Building on 2014, here are some of the events planned for 2015
  • Seniors Training Session At the end of January we have our first Seniors Training and Revision session for instructors and 2nd Degree and above Black Belts in Watford
  • Destruction Workshop The Developing the Class and Destruction Workshops will be held in February.  A must for instructors and those thinking about taking a Dan Grading in 2015.  This event is open to 3rd graders and above; brown belts ensure you get along to this!
  • Year of the Goat On the same day as the Destruction Workshop we will be celebrating the Chinese New Year.
  • Children's syllabus This will be rolled out to all instructors as we are now beginning to open a number of children focussed classes.
  • Gradings We continue with our full agenda of grading across London and the Home Counties
  • Sparring League 2015 This commences at the end of March
  • Veterans We will be holding our first grading for Veteran Dan Grading and coaching exam in May for Black Belts over 50 that are still keen to progress, learn and share their experience. 
  • Forms Competition In May we will be holding our first Forms Competition; can’t wait to see everyone entered in that; nice trophies to be had!
  • More Competitions Towards the end of the year we are planning on having our first knock-out competition where participants will fight based on weight divisions; more on later in the year.
  • New classes We aim to get our first classes in Wales up and running.
  • 2015 Calendar The 2015 Calendar is now up on line so please link through to the website.
