Abbots langley

Classes in Abbots Langley will restart at the end of September. Direct Debits are now being taken off hold for October payment of membership numbers 472 and 517. Breakspeare school is not currently letting their hall due to high cleaning costs and vulnerable students at the school. We have therefore temporarily arranged for extra classes to be held on a Monday at Tanners Wood Hall alongside the Tuesday lessons.

Mondays from 28th September
4.30 to 5.15pm Tiny Tigers
5.30 to 6.15pm White to purple/white belts 6.30 to 7.15pm brown to black belts
Tuesdays from 29th September
4.30 to 5.15pm White to purple/white belts
5.30 to 6.15pm brown to black belts

Any Tiny Tigers currently training on a Tuesday can continue to do so in the 4.30pm Tuesday class or go to the Tiny Tiger class on a Monday also at 4.30pm.

All classes with Covid martial arts guidelines in place. No equipment, no attendance cards to be brought and all students must arrive dressed in karate Gi, belt and trainers/sports shoes. No spectators will be allowed at the hall or in the foyer it will be drop off and collect.

Please confirm by text your attendance before each lesson.

Look forward to seeing you.


Following our previous notification all direct debits will restart on or around the 15th September excluding Tanners Wood, Breakspeare and Towcester apart from the individuals from those schools who have contacted me to train at other venues. Next month payments will return to your usual date.
Please text me if you haven’t already done so before attending classes.

We are restarting karate on Sunday September 6th within the current Covid-19 government guidelines.

Parents dropping their children to class will not be permitted to stay, if they need to they must wait outside. Spectators to martial arts classes are not allowed. Classes will have a clearly signed entry and exit area, where possible, and a hand cleaning station where all persons entering the class area will clean their hands.

We will be keeping all classes to 45minutes allowing time for cleaning between and after classes and to maintain social distancing. There will be no entry from those attending the next class until all those in the previous class have left.

There will be no changing room facilities so you need to come ready dressed in karate Gi, belt and wearing soft soled trainers or sports shoes. Laced up shoes no crocs or slip ons.
For now there will be no need to bring any equipment.

All students need to text 07737034354 each week before each class stating which class they wish to attend in order to avoid exceeding maximum numbers allowed and to keep an attendance record.


Good news we are excited to advise you that we are back! 😀
We are so excited to get back on track and focusing on training again and heading for a December grading.

As an independent business it has been extremely challenging after working and building the club for 30 years closing it down was extremely hard to watch. We appreciate everyone’s support during these tough times as a small business we need the support to keep the business running.

Following discussions with our hall Lettings most have confirmed a restart in September. We will post information with exact dates for each venue when they have been booked. More outdoor sessions will be scheduled soon so keep an eye out for them. All payments will remain on hold until training resumes. Keep practicing and stay healthy.

Do you want to do some karate practice ?

We have set up a page for our students to join. We will be posting short clips for you to practice. This page is only for existing students or mums and dads of the student). Please answer the joining questions to be accepted.

We would like you to watch the videos and practice the moves if you would like to comment, ask a question or upload your own video please do, all we ask is for the videos on the page be kept for personal use and not shared or downloaded anywhere else. We are just having some fun and keeping In touch.

Some videos will be put on tomorrow which will be broken down into segments. We have approached it in a laid back easy going format we are not trying to promote a professionally produced training guide it’s just us at home practicing if you wish to join in for free.

The page is MBKD southern online training

If you ask to join we will approve later and start uploading tomorrow afternoon.

Hope you are all keeping well.

After listening to the updates we have decided to cancel all classes.

Whilst we haven’t been advised this is necessary under current guidelines we feel it’s important to protect the instructors, students and people we all go home and mix with. Social distancing seems to be key. It would only be a matter of days anyway until we would have been advised by the letting agents/schools to close.

As for you all it’s a tough decision to make and will affect lots of small business and large alike but health and well-being needs to be a priority and hopefully we will be back to normal soon and teturning to a safe place for us to train.

The classes will reopen when it’s safe to do so and the halls are allowed to hire them.

In the meantime we have made the decision to put on hold all direct debit payments for training from April 1st, therefore no payments will be taken for April. We have been established for 30 years and look forward to continuing once we can. It’s just a pause.

We will be setting up and offering online training over the next few days and will post details about that soon.

Thank you for your understanding at this time. Stay safe. We are in this together 🙂

Following the latest update just some news.

Roundwood park, Pixmore school and Gadebridge are still going ahead, but watch this space it may change daily. Going forward no doubt this will cease for the time being.

We are going to make an announcement over the weekend about training online. We may not be able to meet in a dojo but it doesn’t mean karate has to stop, we are still a community and we have some options available to us.

Stay tuned.


Just keeping you up to date for the moment we have been advised by school/venues they are not allowing clubs to continue for the time being with immediate effect, this will be monitored by each hall. The following venues have been cancelled and no classes will continue until further notice.

Tuesday no training at Tanners Wood Hall, Abbots Langley

Wednesday no training at Nicholas Hawksmoor, Towcester

Friday no training at Breakspeare school, Abbots Langley

Other venues remain unaffected at this time however we expect this to change soon and we will advise of any changes and updates ASAP.

We will update over the next couple of days with more information.

We hope you are all doing ok at this difficult time.

No photos from the grading but just a quick thanks to you all today who dealt with the guidelines we proposed to try and keep everyone healthy.

Thank you to all the students and well done, parents, carers and anyone who came and made it a success.

As always thanks to the grading panel 😊
