Baby Alexis Makes a Dramatic Entrance

All our best wishes and congratulations go to Jimmy, Gillian, Reece and Jamie Hershaw.

This lovely family have just had a new arrival and isn't she beautiful.

Alexis made a dramatic entry into the World by deciding to be born in the back of the family car on the Liff Road. Which, if you know your geography makes her a citizen of Lochee and the World. She was delivered by her Dad under the supervision of her Mum.

Both Mum and Alexis are doing very well but Dad's in a bit of a state.
Jimmy, you're our hero.

As you can see wee Alexis has her hands in the sparring position, making her the youngest and newest member of Dundee Wildcats...hahaha...put 'em up kid.

Regional Training

Great turnout at todays Regional Training, Sat 29th.
Proud of you all, and congratulations to the students picked for the teams.
Keep it up and we'll do well at the World Championships.

Sponsored Slim

Here goes folks.

I'm doing a sponsored slim to raise money for the World Championships and I need you all to sponsor me........... Pleeeeeeeez.

Doesn't matter how much or how little you give. It's all going to support us.

The forms on the desk at each Club.

I actually started last Monday 17th January and I weighed, wait for it, 13st 0lbs exactly.

I weighed myself today 24th January and I am 12st 7lbs, honest, no kidding.

By the way it's MrC and I'm on the Elephant, I'm no the Elephant.

Regional Training

Regional Training will be held in the Whitfield Club on Saturday 29th January immediately after the normal class, starts 12.00 ends 2.00pm.

All students of all grades are invited to train but I do expect all Blackbelts to attend as many Blackbelts will be travelling from Glasgow and Fife. Lets have a good show please.
