Are Dancers tougher than Karate folk?

24th August 2011
Group after a gruelling session…

The club was lucky enough to be visited by a local Dancing super star, Bethany Muldown (who is the big sister of one of our students). Bethany started dancing at the tender age of 2 years old and can only be described as a dancing machine! She dances with the Elwick Academy of Dance, arguably one of the most successful dance schools in the town so we were very lucky to have her along.

Bethany was leading our Family class in various strength and conditioning exercises. In particular core strength and flexibility, something that most dancers are very good at.

The feedback from the session has been very positive and we’re looking forward to having Bethany back in the near future.

SORRY about the poor picture quality, they were taken on a Blackberry and the camera isn’t very good!

Tonight some members of the club visited the town’s brand new £53m Hartlepool College of Further Education. The college has only been opened to the public for 3 days so everything is still shiny, and they are still receiving deliveries of some of the kit that will make the place truly world class.

How many college’s have their own aircraft hanger? or Cryospa – as used by the New York Jets and AC Milan?

The building is truly breathtaking and is ideally placed in the centre of town – the views from the top floor are great!

Anyway, as our Karate club is a member of the Hartlepool Sporting Association we have been offered exclusive membership rates to the brand new gym at the college – The Luminary.

The deal is £120.00 annual membership (Paid over 6 monthly direct debit instalments of £20 for the first 6 months), the offer is available until 30th September 2011.

This also includes a free induction, individual training plans, group exercise classes and discounts on Sports Therapy and Beauty Therapy sessions at the college.

This offer is available to EVERY member over 14 years old, and their parents*. For more information please speak to Carl or Vince.


*Under the terms of our club constitution, parents of students under 16yrs old are classed as members.
