Final Lessons 2018 / First Lessons 2019

Dear Students,

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and to thank you all for training with Bushido Black Belt Academy.

As you know our training year is divided into 12 four-week periods, for which you pay 12 monthly payments on a set day each month. As there are 13 four-week periods in a year the dojos will be closed for four weeks over Christmas and New Year.

Below is a list of final lessons for 2017 and re-start dates for 2018.

Yours in Karate Do,

Brian Owen
MBKD UK Chief Instructor
