NEW RULES FOR COURSES AND GRADINGS IN 2017


From 2017 you’ll need to bring your license to all courses. Licenses must be up to date in order for you to train. Up to date licenses must also be produced for every grading. If you forget to bring your license to your grading, or it is out of date when you arrive, you may be refused grading opportunities.


Check your licenses!


It's that time of year when many are due for renewal so please have a look at your NOW! You can download a renewal form here. You CANNOT grade with an out of date license.

We have some more hoodies, tshirts and gi badges available for sale. Hoodies are just £28, tshirts are £8 and gi badges are just £5. All available from your sensei. If you’re competing in the squad this year then you MUST have a gi badge and a hoodie.

Squad news


We're looking into some local (UK) tournaments, so please let your sensei know if you're interested in competing in future tournaments. You can enter for either kata or kumite (fighting) or both.

It's not just about winning medals - competing in tournaments helps your focus, speed and awareness, so can benefit your training greatly. Especially if you have a big grading coming up!
