Blackbelts training at ilford dojo
In-between katas

We continue to train at Ilford dojo, but are still awaiting access to our docklands venue and thank you for your patience. At Ilford we are using a booking-in system that is managed by way of an invite on a Friday for the following week. Once we are full an email is sent to inform the membership and successful applicants are told by return of email with payment details. Strange times, but its what we have to do at present to comply with covid-19 government restrictions.

Club Access

We are Open at Ilford dojo, but not at Docklands dojo until further notice! We are trying to resolve the situation and thank you for your patience.

First week back at Ilford dojo post-Covid

Well done to those who returned to training this week despite the temperature being 34 degrees on Tuesday. It was a pleasure to see you again. We are operating a weekly booking process starting on Friday for the following week, so try and secure your place early as we are limited to numbers. Osu! Shihan Nick
