Very First Newsletter
4 March 2019
Finally here is the very first club newsletter. It has taken a while to produce. We wanted it to be readable on any type of device (desktop or mobile). It also had to be accessible to anyone who made use of a screen reader.
We hope you find it factual and fun. We would also like to hear your feedback on how we can improve it. If there are any stories you want published please let Sensei know and we will try to get them into the next issue.
New Adult Karate Class
30 January 2019
I am very excited to be able to announce that we are starting a second class.
Our general class will still run from 6pm until 7pm. The new class will run from 7pm until 8pm. The days remain the same.
This new class will be more adult orientated. So no games unlike the general class which is designed for all ages.

His name is Pango Whitiki Korora, which means Black Belt Little Penguin in te Reo Maori.
Little Blue Karate Penguin

This is the Little Blue Karate Penguin. Who looks a little sad at the moment because he does not have a name.
Can you think of a good Kiwi name for this little penguin after all he is from New Zealand.
