YAKMA HapKiDo certified as a Children’s University Learning Destination

I am both proud and excited to announce that on the 25th of March 2022 YAKMA HapKiDo became a Certified Children’s University Learning Destination.

Children enrolled through their schools can now visit our club to gain credit points towards their CU awards.

We know that children who thrive in school and in later life develop their confidence, aspirations and love of learning from the skills, characteristics and passions they develop both in and beyond the classroom.

This scheme rewards students for attending extra curricula activities

Rotherham CU, encourage children and young people from the age of 5 to try new learning experiences in and outside of school; at breakfast,lunchtime and after school clubs and in their own time,in the local library, museum or further afield.

Culminating in an inspirational graduation ceremony, this learning adventure gives children and young people the opportunity to enrich their childhoods, nurture a lifelong love of learning, unlock their skills and talents and develop their aspirations and confidence
regardless of their backgrounds.

Alex and Maddie have been students at YAKMA for many years and have gone from strength to strength. Through their consistent hard work they have become very accomplished martial artists. They successfully completed their 1st keup gradings on the 10th of June and both put in outstanding performances. Well done Alex and Maddie next stop Black belt

Well done Alex and Maddie. Terrific job

Madeleine has been a student of YAKMA for many years. She successfully graded for her 1st keup on the 1st of July 2020. Madeleine’s next grading will be for 1st Dan Black belt. Madeleine is a very hard working and skilled martial artist. Her kicking skills are a force to be reckoned with as I’m sure many of her sparring partners will testify to. As the grading was done online we don’t have a picture of Madeleine with her certificate so here is one of her receiving her Brown belt in December 2018. Very well done Madeleine.

Black belt candidates

Following the recent online gradings, Black belt candidates William and Carl are joined by Alex, Maddie and Madeleine. All five of them have been with YAKMA for over 7 years and are a testament to what can be acheived with hard work and and tenacity. Congratulations and best wishes to all of you. Keep up the good work.
