Queens Platinum Jubilee & class venue change

👑 Thursday 2nd June 👑

Sesma has been asked to take part in the celebrations for the jubilee and we have of course agreed 😃!

The fayre opens at 6:30pm and goes on until 10pm.

We have been asked to perform a demonstration at 7:30pm and we would love as many of our amazing martial artists to come and show everyone how awesome we are 😃!

Also classes for this day will be up at the king George playing field on Drayton high road, at the normal class times where we will be doing our lessons but having plenty of games aswell and I have been told by the organisers there are plenty of food stalls aswell so why not make an evening of it!

If you are able to come along and support us in celebrating the jubilee that would be awesome!

Keep an eye on Facebook as this event is weather dependent so I will inform you all of any changes.

SESMA were short listed for the Community Award for all the anti-bullying & self defence work that SESMA do in schools. Another school that teaches and empowers disabled children won the award, but the fact that we were nominated was a win for me & my instructors.
