As we move into the Christmas period, I want to thank all our team at JSTKD for a great year of competitions & grading’s.  We continue to grow in numbers & this year saw the opening of a new class in Southam, Warwickshire.

I Married my wife Cassandra Schembri & we now have a daughter in Cali – Jennifer Schembri.  I am now in your world & looking forward to the new challenges.

This year was a successful year with our new Black belts – Mike Kong, Ben Lock, Harriet Nicol, Phoebe Fidler & Tiago Farrera.Congratulations to you all.

We also have some new fighters who attended the Welsh closed champs in the way of Callaghan owes-Bradshaw, Robyn Rose Evans, Ethan Jones & Lilly May Wilicox.

With Darcy Griffin & Freya Thomas fighting & coaching the team.
Gradings Were excellent with best at grading from Natalie Glandville, Erin Jones & Chris Phillips.

As JSTKD develops we now have our new qualified assistant Instructors Menna Birmingham & Ria Hawkins, with our committed junior assistant Freya Thomas, not to mention Phoebe Fiddler & Jacob Waters who also assists regularly.
Seems like our Ladies are taking over with the lead roles.
I look forward to getting more Black Belts involved next year, helping our students achieve their goals.

With all that being said below is our closure for Christma & New year.
