Lorraine Schofield Sensei and Catherine Johnson Sensei have both taken the difficult decision to step down from their roles as Class Instructors. We would like to say a huge thank you to both ladies for all of their passion, dedication and commitment they have both shown to our Club. You have both been superb Instructors to your students and wonderful to work alongside.

It is always sad to be losing Instructors especially for the students whose lives they have been such a big part of. However, both ladies plan to continue to train in the Club so you will still see them from time to time. This affects quite a few classes and we are committed to finding suitable replacement Instructors so that you may continue to train and develop so watch this space! For now, if you were training with Lorraine Sensei on ZOOM, please help yourself to any other link on the day you usually train and you will be made most welcome!



A ZOOM grading will take place on Sunday 20th September. Booking will be available soon. If you have completed a minimum of 3 months and 20 lessons you would be eligible to grade providing you can complete the grading syllabus. Permission to attempt the grades of 2nd Kyu and 1st Kyu must be given by your Instructor. To attempt grades up to brown belt, you are able to put yourself forward.


ZOOM classes cost £6 per class per household pay as you go to be paid by BACS transfer. If you like to train more than once a week, you can pay £15 for the first two weeks for unlimited lessons.

The following timetable will run until Sunday 13th September.

Some classes will re-open on Monday 14th September. A full list and how to book your places online can be found here….. (link available soon).

Those that are unable to open, will be run on ZOOM with your usual Instructor so that we can all get back into our normal routines.
