Latest Restrictions

Indoor and outdoor group classes are not permitted under the current national lockdown, which is due to end on 2nd December 2020. This means our classes will remain online for now via Zoom.

Local & National Restrictions (Updated 5th November):
Newcastle City Council

When are indoor classes resuming?

Our new full-time, permanent dojo premises is ready to go, and if the current national lockdown ends on 2nd December as planned, we will re-open socially-distanced indoor evening classes from:

Thursday 3rd December

The new location can be found below, and is only 1 mile from the old premises:

Evening Members

A message has been sent to all students/parents with the new timetable, and rules/procedures to get you back as safely and quickly as we can.

You should have already received this message, and we ask that you fill in the online form as soon as possible. If you haven’t received anything, please contact us ASAP.

In the meantime, please continue with your online training as much as you can. Thank you again for your continued patience and understanding.

After-School and Lunchtime Members

Unfortunately, you will have to wait until the schools invite us back, and each one will make judgements based on their risk assessments.

Please contact your school with any questions or queries. Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.

New Students

We will not take on any new members until we have settled into the new premises, things are running smoothly and we feel that it is the right time to do so. Unfortunately, a date cannot be put on this yet.

If you are happy to wait, you can apply for our free trial waiting list, and we’ll keep you updated as and when we start to process this. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Support & Donate

We would like to thank everyone for trying their best to continue with their Karate training during this difficult period. Some have gone absolutely out of their way to try and join in with everything that has been offered.

We’ve had weekly online zoom classes, YouTube content, social media challenges, a zoom family quiz and outdoor classes that have all been so well supported. We are utterly grateful for your communication, hard work and support.

If you would like more information about our new full-time Dojo premises, and have the means to support us further by donating towards the costs of the centre opening, please click the button below for more information. Any amount received is humbly appreciated. See you all soon, and thank you again!
