Training in the Hot Weather

With the weather warming up it is important to take care to remain hydrated when training so please bring extra water with you to training sessions when the weather is hot. We are advantageous that the dojo is air-conditioned so training during the summer months need not meet any disruptions.



Summer Closure

An important note for all, the club will be closed for the Month of August. The last training session before the summer break will be 24th July (times as normal) and we will open again on 4th September.


Other clubs within the association will remain open over the summer, so please do try to get out and train at other clubs when you can to keep your karate sharp. Check out news from the association for details.




Summer Course 2017

The summer course was well attended by members from the Thatcham club for a wonderful weekend jam packed with training. Everybody worked hard, and we congratulate those who passed their gradings.


Keep an eye out for details of the next upcoming course this September.
