At Cobra Hyde, we like to bring to the forefront the importance of charities and the fantastic work they do.
You've probably noticed we use different seasonal Cobra emblems (above) throughout the year (Easter, summer, Christmas etc.) So in our own way of supporting certain charities, we’ve decided to display a 'Charity Cobra' here on the websites home page on the months when no seasonal event takes place, along with the name of the charity and a link to the charities website.
These have been chosen both from a personal point of view from myself and some that i think my closest friends will appreciate. Details as to 'why that charity?' will always remain totally private.
Here is the charity that will be displayed throughout May:
" REUBENS RETREAT: www.reubensretreat.org "
Please click the above link to see all of the fantastic work they do!
We will update this section of the website in accordance with any new government guidlines, as and when they are released and relevant. We thank you for your ongoing patience and support during this difficult time.
Please see all information below with regards to what the club is doing during the Coronavirus lockdown period.
**UNFORTUNATELY, DUE TO THE CURRENT CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC, COBRA HYDE WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. FOR MORE REGULAR UPDATES, PLEASE GO TO THE 'CONTACT US' PAGE AND ADD THE CLUBS HEAD INSTRUCTOR AS A FRIEND ON FACEBOOK.
I WOULD PERSONALLY LIKE TO THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND CONTINUED SUPPORT AT THIS VERY DIFFICULT TIME AND I LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING ALL MEMBERS AND THEIR FAMILIES WHEN WE ARE ABLE TO RE-OPEN.
UNTIL THEN, STAY SAFE AND KEEP WORKING HARD**

Covid 19 Bronze Award
Covid 19 Silver Award
Covid 19 Gold Award
Covid 19 Platinum Award
During the difficult times of the Coronavirus pandemic, Cobra Hyde has introduced measures to help keep students and their families motivated, active and healthy throughout.
We ecourage ALL students to continue working hard at their Martial Arts during the 'lockdown' period, until we can safely re-open the club. With this in mind, we have introduced the above four awards.
These will be awarded at the discretion of the clubs head instructor. When a student trains at home, if they are able to send evidence to the head instructor, he will then decide which (if any) certificate the student has earned. This does not however, just have to be for training in Martial Arts. For example, a student may earn an award for helping or teaching a family member with their training, or even by helping out in the wider community. However, as with all certificates at Cobra Hyde, these will not be handed out lightly, so we must insist on evidence in any case.
We also ask that anyone who thinks they know someone who deserves an award, to also please get in touch and discuss this with the head instructor asap. Again the list of ways to earn these certificates is endless and their is no limit to the amount a single student can earn, up to and including the Gold Award, for example, a student could earn five of each certificate if it is warranted.
All certificates will be emailed directly to the student once earned, so they can print them off, fill them in at home and then add them to their portfolio's or put them out proudly on display.
However, to earn a Platinum Certificate, a student must go above and beyond. If you feel someone has done this, again please get in touch asap. Any Platinum certificates awarded will be sent with the students name and the date of the award pre loaded on to the certificate template. Different to the other three awards thoguh ,students can ONLY earn ONE platinum certificate, so they must be exceptional circumstances to achieve one.
