Availability for W/C 19th Oct and Grading news


We hope you are all well. May I take this opportunity to remind everyone that we are operating under strict guidelines. Social distancing needs to be maintained before, during and after our lessons. There should be no mixing between people from different households.

We are doing a fantastic job of looking after one another. Please keep it up.

Remember if you feel unwell or experience any COVID 19 symptoms at all, please do not come to class. Likewise, if you have been asked to isolate, you must do so even if you have returned a negative test.

Grading information: 

ZOOM – Sunday 1st November 2020 – 11am-3pm

For more information and how to book please follow the link below. Students have until Sunday 25th October to book their places. Once you have filled in the online booking form and paid via Paypal, you will be sent a link and your time slot. Bookings made without payment will be cancelled.

Students who are retaking grading do NOT need to book in online. We will liase with your Sensei and send you a link if they feel the required progress has been made to re-attempt grading.

Please make sure you fill in all of the information requested, belts and certificates will be posted out to your home address on Monday 2nd November if you are successful.

We appreciate that ZOOM gradings are not ideal and not for everyone, but it is the safest possible way of conducting gradings at the moment whereby Mums and Dads and Instructors can watch and be a part of it.

We are aiming to restart dojo gradings at evening classes from January onward. However, the option to grade on ZOOM will remain for those who are not ready to step back into classes.

Grading Registration Link:

This is the only way to book. Your Instructor cannot book you in, you will need your username and password handy to complete the booking form.
