For now, we are holding classes each Sunday afternoon at 4pm, outside the dojo at the back garden of the scout hut. These are weapons based using jo and bokken so there is no physical contact and plenty of distance between people. Newcomers should drop us an email beforehand, and remember we are at the back of the building- if you do turn up please call Maria on 07906 336612 or David on 07919 970270…
Due to the current Coronavirus pandemic we will not be practising for the foreseeable future, until it is safe to do so. Until then, stay safe and well!
A big thank you to Azamikai of Edinburgh for organising the course with Sugawara Sensei. Good to see new and familiar faces on the mat, it was thoroughly enjoyable! Thanks to Sensei again for his teaching and patience! Looking forward to the next visit…
