End Of Year Speech for 2004
or New Year Speech for 2005

2004 was another good year for both our schools. With yet more of you achieving your Blackbelts, and many of our seniors working further up through the Dan grades. It is also nice to see that although we have lost some students through the year the numbers haven't really dropped as new people are joining all the time.

Also its been a real year for Taekwon-Do families with many new arrivals throughout, congratulations to all those parents (Remember, training starts at 5 years old, Sundays and Wednesdays).

A big thank you all the Blackbelts and commitee members that have kept thing running and especially those of you that have run classes in my abscence, it shows the our schools are bigger than just an instructor.

So here's to another year, let's do all we can to continue to make our Taekwon-Do schools the best they can be.
