Festive Season Training

Oss,
December is fast approaching so it’s that time again to give advance notification of the Club’s festive season closure for 2018.

The final classes for 2018 will take place on Thursday 13th December at Nunnery Wood Sports Centre.

The IJKA Worcester dojo will reopen on Thursday 3rd January 2019 at Nunnery Wood Sports Centre.

I hope you all have a great festive break.

I look forward to seeing you all recharged with fresh motivation in 2019 and helping you with your personal journey up the mountain or through the forest.

Ossu Sensei Steve,

Training venue alteration

Nunnery Wood Sports Centre ~ Thursday 15th November

Please note that we cannot use the Dance Studio on this date and have been temporarily relocated to Badminton Court No. 1 in the Main Sports Hall at Nunnery Wood Sports Centre.
Class times are unchanged.

This is a one off alteration due to school use of the Dance Studio that evening.
