Children must be supervised by Parents / Carers at all times whilst not in the Dojang. Remember we’re using a public facility (Sportspark) and our behaviour should reflect this.

Entrance Passes to the Sportspark for Students are available from your Instructor. Otherwise entrance will cost 60p.

Yellow Belts and above need safety equipment, Gum Shields and Groin Guards the bare minimum. (assuming hand and foot pads borrowed) Ideally, you should have your own equipment. (the Club doesn’t have loan equipment) Equipment is available for purchase on the day. Or alternatively from your Club Instructor. Gum Shields really need to be purchased in advance as they need to be moulded to your teeth.

The Sportspark has a cafeteria. However if you take sandwiches, you must be responsible for placing resultant rubbish into bins. The same applies to any packaging acquired from equipment bought or received on the day.

Saracen Martial Arts has an enviable reputation for discipline and respect. The very highest standards are expected from us at all times, especially at Gradings.

The Instructors and Examiners of Saracen Martial Arts would like to thank you in advance for your co-operation and understanding of the above aforementioned Guidelines and directions for Saracen Martial Arts Club Gradings.

IF YOU OR YOUR FAMILY WOULD LIKE TO TAKE PHOTOGRAPHS OR MOVING PICTURES, PLEASE REGISTER WITH THE SPORTSPARK MAIN RECEPTION DESK.
