Updates: May-June 2021

Just a few updates for you! 

>>> Pad work & sparring are back!
Thank you for your patience while we’ve been getting to grips with the ever-changing government guidance! We’ve just updated our COVID-19 Implementation Plan; please have a read and check that you’re happy with the measures we have in place. The main changes include:

  • Pad work and sparring are now permitted for under 18s; although students must be grouped into ‘training bubbles’ of no more than 15 people (these bubbles will be coordinated by the club)
  • Students aged 18 & over are currently permitted to train with 2m distancing in place (no contact permitted with others, unless from same household).

If you have any questions or concerns about these changes, please get in touch.

>>> Classes for June 2021
Classes for June will be available to book online this Wednesday 26th May. Book via our website here.

>>> Merchandise Orders
We’ll be placing equipment and merchandise orders at the end of the month, so please let us know if you need any kick pads, uniforms, t-shirts, hoodies, etc. Please take a look at our catalogue to see what’s available.
