Xmas Dinner 2011

Last year’s Xmas Dinner seems like yesterday: it may come as a surprise that not only is the next grading on Sunday, December 4th, but it is to be followed by the time-honoured tradition of the Carisma Xmas Dinner.

This year we selected an exclusive venue for our traditional Xmas Party. The Box Café is usually closed on Sunday night so we are the only booking for the evening; the place is run by Ozi a Turkish chef and restaurant owner that will provide the full Turkish and mediterranean cuisine experience, in a rich three courses meal.

The starters made of a rich Meze platter will include:

  • Dolma
  • Mercimek Kofte (Red Lentils crushed mixed with weath paste and herbs)
  • Borek (Filo/puff pastry with various fillings)
  • Mozzarella, tomato and olive skewers
  • Pitta, humus, taramasalata and cacik

Mains made on the BBQ including:

  •  Sish kebab (lamb and veggies Skewers)
  • Kofte Kebab (minced lamb skewers)
  • Taruk (marinated chicken breast)
  • Vegetarian / Fish kebabs (please notify on order)

All the above served with Rice with vermicelli and sesame seeds

Dessert made of Fresh Fruit platters and home made Baklava

All of the above for £20 per person with a BYO (bring your own) alcohol policy and no extra charge for corkage 🙂

Downpayments for booking will be collected at classes.

Please RSVP a.s.a.p.!!! you can express your interest on our Facebook event.

Beginners Course January 2012

The  next CARISMA beginners course, will start on Thursday 19 January 2011 to run for 4 consecutive Thursday and Tuesday  classes (e.g. 19, 24, 26, 31).  We had a couple of very busy beginners’ course lately (see picture) and we usually have Tues and Thurs classes (our busiest ones) with many people training, between 30 and 40 individuals.

January is usually one of the busiest times in the year thanks to the “New Year’s Resolution” effect that involves people of all ages.  So if you would like to join (or you know somebody who would like to) please do it on the 19 January.

Please notice: you must join the beginners’ course just if you are a total beginnner.  Any previous experience in striking martial arts (kickboxing, muai thai, karate, tae kwon do, kung fu, etc…) is appreciated and will allow you to join without without going through the beginners’ course.  Please get in touch with us if in doubt.

There is no need for booking for beginners: please just turn up at 6pm at Kelsey Kerridge.
