Due to the restrictions and Government advice we took the hard decision to close the dojo doors after classes on Friday 20th March.

We are concerned for the future of the club in the uncertainty we are all facing at this moment in time but are also mind full that the health and safety of all our students, families and friends is paramount for the foreseeable future, please stay safe and stay at home as much as you can, we are doing live feeds on the shugyou syllabus and kata group on facebook, you will have to ask to be added though, these feeds will be saved so you can visit anytime, we are also planning video,s for you to tap into to assist in your training and iam looking at the platform zoom to maybe do some conferencing sessions at home.



Remember you don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to become great

just call to register 07788975068
