Just a reminder to every member of CARISMA that the grading will take place during the Sunday lesson, 18 September 2011 between 5 and 7pm and afterward we’ll have a social dinner at The Gandhi in Regent Street from 8pm. If you are interested in joining us for dinner please RSVP at this Facebook event.
There will be a standard lesson for those member who are not training on the day.
To celebrate the social as well as martial aspects of our club we are going to have the annual BBQ on 11 June 2011. Current and former members, as well as partners, are welcome. Please contact us to book your place before Tuesday 7 June.
Last year’s Xmas Dinner seems like yesterday: it may come as a surprise that not only is the next grading on Sunday, December 5th, but it is to be followed by the time-honoured tradition of the Carisma Xmas Dinner.
This year’s dinner will take place at the CB2 Bistro, on 1 Norfolk Street. We have reserved a private room just for us.
Places are available now, for the princely sum of £18.95 (drinks are charged separately on the day). We’ll be taking names & collecting a non refundable deposit at all training sessions until Thursday 3 December.
To use a sentence used last year by Wez: this is a once-a-year opportunity to change the colour of your belt twice in one day – once in recognition of the effort and commitment you have put into training with Carisma, and once in recognition of the vibrantly coloured food you have spilled down yourself.
Please join us for the dinner held at Meghna Tandoori House on Sunday 12 September, after grading. Meeting time is 8PM, we have 12 places booked so far, please book your place by Emailing us.
