19th July - Return to Training Update

With the changes in COVID-19 legal restrictions today, we will be returning to a normal schedule and teaching a full syllabus for all ages.

The pandemic is not over.  Local and national infection rates remain high. We are therefore carefully adjusting our training and syllabus in alignment with government guidelines. The following changes are taking place from today.

  • All social distancing restrictions will be removed. This will allow close contact work for all ages. This also means all students who have their own arm and shin pads should ensure these are brought to all classes (these are compulsory for Green Tag and above).

  • The Monday and Thursday Teen/Adult Classes will be extended to 90 minutes. The classes will now run from 7.15-8.45pm.

  • The Dan Poomsae Class will now run from 8.45-9.15pm on a Monday. This will continue to be available as a physical and online class.

  • The Stretching Class will now run from 8.45-9.15pm on a Thursday. This will continue to be available as a physical and online class.
  • Changing rooms will be available. However use should be minimised and only at the start and end of a class. Water bottles and personal equipment should be brought into the training area, trays will continue to be available as required.

  • The waiting room will be available. However in keeping with government guidelines on continuing to wear masks in indoor spaces, except for those with exemptions, we will expect everyone except students and instructors to wear masks when inside the dojang.

  • Juniors should continue to be dropped off and collected from outside of the dojang to avoid congestion at the start and end of classes.

  • Pre-booking of classes will no longer be required.  However if you wish to attend (or have your children attend) a class marked as full on the website please contact us beforehand.  Several of our junior classes are running close to the limits on capacity.

  • To minimise the risk of COVID-19 to the club and our members, please also continue to ensure that you/your children do not attend classes when showing any signs of illness.  There will be plenty of opportunities to catch up with any classes missed.

Stretching and Flexibility

As we plan for Stage 4 of lockdown easing, we are looking at our long term class schedule.

We have a small group regularly attending the Sunday 6.15-6.45pm Stretching and Flexibility Class, and the numbers have fallen since we returned to physical classes. We are keen to see if we can encourage more people to work on improving their flexibility beyond what we can cover in normal classes.

So from this week we are going to run an experiment. For the next three weeks we will be running two Stretching and Flexibility Classes

Thursdays 8.30-9.00pm
Sundays 6.15-6.45pm

Both classes will be open to all club members regardless of grade, age or whether you pay for one class per week or multiple classes. Both classes will be available as a physical class and online. Each week's classes will follow the same stretching plan.

If you would like to attend the physical classes, perhaps staying on from the Family Class on a Sunday or the Adult/Teen Class on a Thursday, please register by sending an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Pre-registration is not required for those attending online.
