Little Ninja classes

Finally after 6 months we are able to get our "Little Ninja" sessions back from the 1 October.  Classes will be much smaller and run in line with Covid guidance for schools and that issued by Sport England.  I am looking forward to seeing most of you back again.  There is enough spaced seating for one adult/parent and the equipment will be fully sanitised after each session.  Instructors will be wearing face shields for their protection.

Club re-opening

Folowing advice from Sport England and the Government website I am pleased to say that we can now re-open. Classes will resume on Saturday 1 August at Greenacre Hall.  The Leisure Centre are managing a staged return, so I don't think it will be too long before we can attend there.  I have sent all of you an email to book your sessions as we need to carefully manage numbers.  Things will be much different in class but at least it is a start.

Club opening - Covid 19 virus

Covid 19 Virus

I appreciate that the current virus outbreak is very worrying and is causing a lot of difficulties for all our students and families.  I am closely looking at the guidance from the government, council and our karate governing bodies.
