Unfortunately we are still under the coronavirus lockdown and will not be able to resume training until the government relaxes the rules to allow groups to train. In the meantime we hope you will keep yourselves in reasonable shape and make the best of a bad situation. We look forward to seeing you hopefully in the not too distant future.
As a result of the governments measures to contain the spread of the Corona virus, we have had to take the unfortunate decision of suspending training at both dojos until further notice. We will of course inform you as soon the time is deemed appropriate to resume. The important thing is everyone's health, so take appropriate measures to protect yourself, family and friends. See you in hopefully the not too distant future.
