Dojo Classes will continue but we will be implementing a few things to maintain the health & safety for our members that choose to attend class. No partner work for now, only basics, kata and sparring drills We ask that students DO NOT touch each other and attempt to follow the 1-2 metre social distance […]
Due to the current COVID-19 situation affecting training locations, venues and the health and safety of our students, we are postponing the Tournament. Once the situation improves, we will reassess and re-schedule.
