Club Update

Good evening guys

As we are sure you will understand after lots of advice and long and late night discussions we had decided that we should postpone all classes. Following announcements today that gyms have to close it confirms we are following government guidelines. We will constantly review this and for the well being of our karate family amend things as they change.

At this time we are currently looking into the best platforms which will enable us to offer you online training at home Skype or Zoom seem to be the most popular so please bear with us whilst we work out which will be the best and easiest one to use for our live video sessions, using one of these means we can continue in some way to bring a little bit of ippon into your homes.

We will also be making some instructional videos which will be available to all students again please bear with us.

Short term we are looking to do live Facebook sessions on the social pages so please join in and let us know what you think.

We thank all our members for their continued support and patience in this tough time. We are also looking at ways to reduce your fees to help you in the tough times and also help keep our venues available to us when we return to normality by paying a retainer fee. We have to work to support each other in these unprecedented times.

Anyone with any problems please contact either myself, Damian or Dawn privately and we will always help if we can.

Please keep a watch for updates on Facebook and WhatsApp for the latest news.

The Ippon family is strong, we have survived tough times before remember we are a team

We will survive

Sending you all our best wishes stay safe.
