Confirmation that we will be restarting karate on Monday April 12th (for children under the age of 18) 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 under COVID-19 guidelines. Classes will have a clear entry and exit. A hand cleaning station at the door where all persons entering and exiting the class area can sanitise their hands.

We will be keeping all classes to 45 minutes 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.

Please limit what you bring into the class. No sparring or equipment to be used at this time, also no attendance books or water bottles to be brought, an attendance list will be kept for each lesson. 

All students need to text 

Brian 07737 034354 if they wish to attend in order to avoid exceeding maximum numbers allowed.

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 from Monday 12th April for all students under 18 years old. Adults will be able to train from May 17th. (All going to plan) 

As an independent business it has been extremely challenging after working and building the club for 35 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. 

The following classes will be restarting (covid guidelines will be in place to ensure the safety of our students and instructors in line with government recommendations) 

Please remember no equipment, no attendance books, no water bottles and wear trainers.

We will confirm the steps as we go in case anything changes and will advise about schedules and direct debit payments.

Our roadmap for getting back to karate training.
Some light to a very long tunnel.
It’s been a tough year for our small business we thank you for the support.
We will confirm the steps as we go in case anything changes and will advise about schedules and direct debit payments.

Waiting for the finer details but seems we can’t restart yet. 12th April seems to be when gyms can be open but training alone or with household. Classes it seems will be at a later date.

When we have proper clarification we will update.

Hopefully some outdoor training may be possible soon.

Direct debits remain on hold at this time.

Training and payment update

As you are all aware this is an ongoing situation.

Unfortunately the full tier 4 lockdown for all our areas and venues came into force over Christmas, it meant we were too late to put the payments that were due out on the 1st January on hold. Those payments that have been taken are now being refunded by EFC. All payments for the 15th Jan are on hold.

All payments will then be on hold until such time as we can train again.

We are trying to manage the situation and payments as best as we can in an ever changing situation and sometimes at very short notice. Direct Debits take a few working days to be collected and processed that’s why it isn’t possible to always amend the collections in time.

Happy new year to you all, are you missing the 2021 punches ??

We will be training again as soon as we can.

Thanks for your ongoing support as a small business it’s really important to us 😄 we appreciate it.

Any further updates will be posted here And in our website.


Brian and Danni

Well we didn’t see that one coming
Final front kick to the …..
Thats it folks for 2020
Sorry to those they didn’t get to grade, we tried.
We will carry the grading forward to the New Year and do them as soon as we can

Merry Christmas 🎄

Thank you for all the support this year, it’s appreciated.

As one final quick swift Mae Geri to the …….s, we seem to have moved most of the classes into Tier 3. All we need is snow for the final blow to karate training for 2020.

However in true karate spirit we carry on. Classes will continue for the under 18’s and their gradings, please remember your red licence books. If you have applied but not yet received one it will be given on the day.

Anyone over 18 who wishes to grade can attend the lesson tonight at 7.30pm at Roundwood Park or 6.00pm at Letchworth, there is limited space available so its first come first served, please be sensible as we are trying to discourage large journeys you all know where you live and whats closest. Please text Brian if you wish to attend one of these lessons to grade 07737 034354.

All people that don’t grade will be graded ASAP when we can and tiers or details change.
